There’s a last-minute show happening at Magnolia tonight; an electronic musician from France who goes by Lafidki is coming through on tour, and Dylan and I are the supporting acts on the bill. Lafidki‘s stuff sounds nice — what little I’ve heard of it, anyway — so I’m interested to hear his set. Dylan will […]

Fire Tapes and DBB at the Pigeon Hole

June 25th, 2011 · 4 Comments · By

There’s a promising show tonight, and I’m really bummed out that I won’t be able to go to it; the Fire Tapes and DBB at the Pigeon Hole! the Fire Tapes are an underappreciated local group who do low-key fuzzy/shoegazery country rock stuff; definitely on the Velvet Underground wavelength, with maybe a little bit of […]

Heavy Cream & No Brainer tonight!

June 24th, 2011 · 3 Comments · By

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show only got announced a few days ago, but it’s definitely one you won’t want to miss! Heavy Cream are an awesome gang of snotty troublemaking punk girls (plus one dude) from Nashville, and they’re one of the funnest live acts I’ve seen in the past year or so. They’ve been through […]

tons of events this hot summer evening

June 18th, 2011 · 6 Comments · By

There’s plenty of pleasant things to do on this hot sweaty summer night; we were late in getting on the sidebar calendar, so I want to take a second to highlight tonight’s show at Al-Hamraa. Relatively new-ish local supergroup Infinite Jets are the main attraction; that’s the group fronted by Matt Bierce from Drunk Tigers […]

Colin Powell + Myself at RADIO BISTRO

June 13th, 2011 · Comments Off on Colin Powell + Myself at RADIO BISTRO · By

Radio Bistro is happening again tonight! I’m pleased to report that this weekly event has so far been a success; we were offered the opportunity to DJ in the C&O’s downstairs Bistro every Monday on a somewhat temporary and provisional basis, since DJing at the C&O had never really happened before, and no one was […]
