New Nailgunner

May 31st, 2009 · 13 Comments · By

Hi, I’m a girl named Michael and for some reason (most likely because the creator of Nailgun watched me suffer through some intense poison oak and wanted to cheer me up) it was decided that I would be the newest contributor to Nailgun.  This is the one and only blog I enjoy, so hopefully my […]

Drunk Tigers

May 31st, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

Drunk Tigers are playing at The Box tonight. Drunk Tigers is a new-ish band consisting of my friends/neighbors Matt (from Gulf Coast Army), Zach (from Cataract Camp), and Mike (from “No Brow” on WTJU). It’s only their third or fourth show or something, but they’re pretty good, and I’m told they have a brand-new CD […]

Tea House tonight

May 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Tea House tonight · By

I’m DJing at the Tea Bazaar tonight, along with Bristol and Colourboy and a few other folks. They’ve done quite a few successful electronic music events around town over the past year or so, although this’ll be my first time doing a gig with them. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to the set (which I’m planning […]

Zee Avi

May 27th, 2009 · Comments Off on Zee Avi · By

Tonight the Tea Bazaar hosts Malaysian songwriter Zee Avi. Zee plays sort of lazy day folky jazz songs. She’s got a great voice and sense of melody. It’s nice, soothing stuff. Zee has sort of burst onto the scene in the last couple months, since this show was originally booked. Her next gig is at 9:30 […]

Tuesday: Screening, Blue Moon, Tea Bazaar

May 26th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

A few good things happening tonight: First off, a screening at the new art space Try & Make (on Preston across from the Shell Station) of a film called How To Draw a Bunny. I’ll borrow directly from T&M curator Jaymee Martin: A documentary about eccentric and totally alone now-dead artist Ray Johnson .  Some call him […]

memorial day happenings

May 25th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

Mister Baby (Megan Huddleston) is playing at the Box tonight instead of Blue Moon. This will be her first show there since she released her widely praised album, which I will sum up here as a nice, gritty slice of virginiana as told by one tough, talented lady. Harrisonburg’s Preacher will start things off and […]

ESMONT ROCKS!

May 24th, 2009 · Comments Off on ESMONT ROCKS! · By

So the Bonnie “Prince” Billy show at Fry’s Spring is tonight, and I’m sure many of you are quite excited about that; while I’ve never disliked his music, Mr. Oldham’s stuff has never precisely been my cup of tea, so I’ll leave the blogging about that event to others. Personally, I’m much more excited about […]

Pokey Lafarge tonight!

May 23rd, 2009 · Comments Off on Pokey Lafarge tonight! · By

Pokey’s back in town tonight; he’s one of my favorite live performers at the moment, and I heartily encourage you to come check out the show.  He’s a contemporary old-time / blues / ragtime / proto-rockabilly performer; he’s based out of Louisville, but tours constantly, and was even a member of the Hackensaw Boys for […]

Birdlips w/ Loxsly + Monster Movies at The Bridge

May 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

Tonight, Birdlips play with Loxsly down at the Tea Bazaar. Things should start at 10PM (like actually start at 10, not “show up at 10:30 for things to start at 11”). I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Birdlips yet, but what I’ve heard of their music is great, so this should be fun. Loxsly, meanwhile, […]
