one in a Church, one in a Bar

March 15th, 2011 · Comments Off on one in a Church, one in a Bar · By

Two shows of note tonight: Recent Cville transplant Sanders Bohlke is playing at Christ Episcopal Church again; I missed his last show there, but I’m totally sold on his recorded material, so I’d say this is definitely one to check out. Christ Church is the big stone one on the corner of Second St. NW […]

RADIO BISTRO begins tonight at the C&O

March 14th, 2011 · 2 Comments · By

Something exciting is happening tonight; the first-ever edition of RADIO BISTRO, a Monday-night music-listening thing in the downstairs Bistro at the C&O. My friend and roommate Chris Hlad and I will be selecting the music from 10pm until 2am; it’s definitely not a dance party, more like a pleasant opportunity to enjoy great music while […]

WTJU presents DOM & Cedermark at the Tea House tonight

March 11th, 2011 · 4 Comments · By

DOM is playing at the Tea House tonight. There’s a lot of totally ridiculous press surrounding this guy, but the band is actually supposed to be really good. Hard to tell what it actually sounds like though, because everything I can find that’s written about them is some silly gossipy bullshit (which the band themselves […]

March 10th, 2011 · Comments Off on Dzian! and more- psych/garage/surf at Tea House tonight! · By

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show should be really fun — it’s one of your last chances to catch Dzian! before Academia pulls them to the four corners of the globe this Spring; they put on quite a show, playing international surf and garage pop with a full seven-piece band and a small troupe of dancers; definitely […]

SXSW Comes To The Tea House

March 9th, 2011 · 10 Comments · By

We’ve definitely entered the part of the year where, even here in Virginia, traffic for bands heading to Austin for SXSW and competing for venues to play along the way is peaking. Indeed, I’ve had to turn down booking offers from many many cool bands for this coming week, so consider the ones that made […]

NINE noise bands at Magnolia House tonight; + GULL at the Box

March 8th, 2011 · Comments Off on NINE noise bands at Magnolia House tonight; + GULL at the Box · By

There’s a big ol’ show at the Magnolia house tonight, with no less than NINE noise/etc acts playing!  There are folks from VA, from Baltimore, Philly, from North Carolina, and who knows where else. Dylan assures me that the show will actually be running on a pretty tight schedule, in contrast with some shows you […]

La Sera and Heavy Cream at the Tea Bazaar Tonight!

March 6th, 2011 · 9 Comments · By

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show should be really fun! You may recall that the Tea House isn’t even usually open on Sundays, so this is another one of those special-occasion shows (I think they’ll just be doing beer & wine etc, probably not dinner or hookahs)… anyhow, here’s the poster: The headlining act is La Sera […]

Rock Show at Al Hamraa tonight! yes, the Morroccan restaurant

March 5th, 2011 · 1 Comment · By

There’s a rock show tonight at Al-Hamraa, the Morroccan restaurant in the Ix Building. Don’t think they’ve ever had a show there before, but Nailgun’s own Sarah Carr went ahead and booked one, and I’m really excited to see how it turns out! Here’s the poster I made for it: Super Vacations, are from… Harrisonburg, […]

Borrowed Beams / Naked Gods / Lisps tonight!

March 3rd, 2011 · 6 Comments · By

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show should be pretty great; it’s yet another rare appearance of the Borrowed Beams of Light, aka the much-loved Charlottesville super-group fronted by Adam Brock (whom you probably know as the drummer/sometimes-singer for Invisible Hand and Nice Jenkins). Borrowed Beams is Adam’s chance to show his inimitable “chops” as a frontman, playing […]

RANDY NEWMAN TONIGHT

March 1st, 2011 · 7 Comments · By

At the Paramount tonight: No, he’s not “just the guy who wrote the Toy Story song.” C’mon, “Political Science” ? “I Love LA” ? “Dayton, Ohio 1903”? Get outta here. What, do you need to hear the same songs by cooler people to appreciate him or something? Oh yeah, he also won an Oscar the […]
