Garage Show Tonight

June 21st, 2009 · 4 Comments · By

For those out there who don’t know, the Garage is a fantastic, tiny venue (slash mini art gallery) right next to the Hill & Wood funeral home.  If the audience is small enough and the style of music allows for it, there is a cozy situation involving floor-sitting and couch-squeezing as everyone crowds into the […]

Downtown, Q Black and the Illville Crew are playing at the Tea House. You can bet your beatbox that this show is going to be packed even though I’m pretty sure Jacob, James, myself, along with the majority of this site’s readership will be on West Main at Is. Michael, however, will be at the […]

Further Details re: Tonight

June 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on Further Details re: Tonight · By

Just a few more notes on tonight… The openers for Worn in Red include the ever-excellent locals Kiste, as well as Generation of Vipers — I just ran into Kiste’s Jay and Nathaniel on the mall, and they assured me that the Vipers are pretty awesome, in an Isis / Pelican kind of way. Congrats […]

Worn in Red and more

June 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on Worn in Red and more · By

Tonight Worn in Red, Generation of Vipers, I Need Closure and Kiste play at Is / Si Tapa. Brendan Fitzgerald wrote a little about Worn in Red on c-ville.com. I reviewed their split 7″ a while back. They are a solid, energetic and earsplitting (in a good way!) band. Get ready to rock. Also tonight: […]

Sunday: Mountain Man, Monday: Emperor X

June 18th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

So I’m certain that (almost) none of you have heard of Mountain Man yet, but they’re great and they’re coming to town soon. So, if you’re in a quiet, calm place, and ready to hear some pretty-ass shit, click on the mp3s below. Joanna Newsom and Fleet Foxes are the first influences that pop into […]

Chris Weingarten on Twitter vs. the Music Industry

June 18th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

DJ BaconFat just sent this to the WTJU list, and I think it’s worth watching. Weingarten does a pretty good job of encapsulating and summarizing the way that the industry of music criticism has changed over the past 10 years, and he makes a valid and interesting argument about it as well: Anyhow, you should […]

Ed!

Donny Hue and the Colors are playing tonight! They’re on tour in support of a new-ish album they recorded at a cabin in Luray last June. I think it’s a well done, high-quality, lovable record. They play folk rock that strongly reminds me of Bob Dylan and late 60s era Kinks but, then again, what […]

Don’t stay in…

…cause there are many cool things going down tonight, and they appeal to a fairly wide spectrum of people. For those looking to enjoy a drink or two and start up a dance party, hit up The Box for some record spinning courtesy of Blair Amberly of Speakertree Records.  Amberly was kind enough to write […]
