Also actually HAPPENING tonight…

July 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on Also actually HAPPENING tonight… · By

So despite earlier attempts at switching some things around, the show at the Tea Bazaar tonight is ON and those bands will, in fact, not be playing the house show later in the evening. Summer seems to be making me (and I think others, as well) slow, confused, and disorganized. The bands are Motorcycle Maus (Philadelphia), Billy Noom (of […]

also NOT happening tonight

July 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on also NOT happening tonight · By

…also a quick reminder that tonight’s Dust show is NOT happening. (Curt says it’s because former Smith Johnny Marr changed Modest Mouse’s practice schedule — no joke!). But it’s gonna get rescheduled, so Tom will indeed be playing in town again soon. BUT, openers PanterBurn will still be playing, albeit at the Blue Moon instead […]

House Show!

July 31st, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

I’m having another show at place, and it’s going to be pretty sizable.  It’s a six act bill (which actually doesn’t top the first house show I hosted which was a seven act bill…not trynna brag or anything but I’m still shocked my housemates and I managed to pull that off without wrecking our place).Jacob […]

it will be loud, probably crowded

July 30th, 2009 · 7 Comments · By

I have been looking forward to today for a long time and not just because I’m supposed to receive shoes in the mail. Today is special because Whatever Brains are heading up to Charlottesville. I love their music, which is garage rock descended from the likes of The Stooges and the MC5. I’d go so […]

Corsair at the Tea Bazaar tonight

July 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Corsair at the Tea Bazaar tonight · By

Corsair is playing at the Tea Bazaar tonight: The opener is Sleep for the Nightlife, whom Marie describes as “awesomely amazing math rock from Canada” … actually she sent along an mp3 as well, and it sounds super-tight. Should start around 9:30 or 10-ish? I think it looks like a swell show… (gonna try to […]

two cancellations, good stuff coming up

July 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

Apparently the show at DUST on Friday (with Tom Peloso and the Virginia Sheiks) has been POSTPONED… but Micheaux says that PantherBurn (the scheduled opener) will instead be playing at the Blue Moon Diner that night, around 9pm. If I’m not mistaken, we were actually planning on doing some sort of small feature on that […]

Hot Tub! Very Hot!

July 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

I went tubing on the river yesterday, and got excellently and thoroughly sunburned, which I see as a mark of great success in summertime fun-having.  The whole time I kept thinking of this video — can’t find an embeddable version of it, but it’s too good not to share. What really gets me about this […]

lots o music

July 27th, 2009 · Comments Off on lots o music · By

The Alphabet, a brand new band from Harrisonburg, are playing their first Charlottesville show at the Box tonight and I’m happy to have them. They’re pretty good dudes whom you’ll likely recognize from at least one of these bands:  Order, An American Tourist, Dialogues, Super Vacations, and the long gone Sing! Sing! Prison (R.I.P.) So […]

CLAW reunion tonight!

The Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers, who last ‘rassled back in November, are doing one last big send-off event this evening, entitled the Thrilla in Cvilla. It’s happening behind Blue Moon Diner at 8pm. It’s free, although attendance may be limited by capacity, and betting (both above and below the table) is widely encouraged (all the […]

a Blectum, Drunk Tigers, and tons more

July 24th, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

There are tons of shows going on tonight — I’m gonna try to see at least 2 of them, I hope. The one I’m most excited about is an early show at The Bridge; the headliner is Blevin Blectum, a.k.a. 1/2 of the duo formerly known as Blectum from Blechdom. I assumed they were sort […]
