Bike movies, two shows and a party

January 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

So you probably already know / are excited about the Outback show tonight…  BUT here’s another thing that’s going on before that:

Woodfolk is having a screening of the Bike Shorts films at 7pm — if you’re an active member of the local community of bicycling enthusiasts, you probably know where Woodfolk is, and if you know any of the folks there I’m sure you’d be welcome in their home. So go check out the Bike Shorts on their big fancy video projector in their big fancy living room.

Then later on at Outback Lodge, it’s Ultra Dolphins and Order of the Dying Orchid opening for Fucked Up. Fucked Up are from New York {I’m an idiot, they’re totally from Toronto}; to be honest, the few songs I’ve heard from them didn’t do much for me, but tonight is their opportunity to change my mind; and besides, I’ll pretty much go to see the semi-local double-powerhouse of  Order and Ultra Dolphins under any circumstances, because those guys always put on a great show. {Also, apparently there’s an after-party at Jack’s house.}

Oh, and if you’re in the mood for a 90’s ska revival instead, you can see the Pietasters at Is. Openers are the Stabones, Rude Rock Family, and Jackal Tickets.

    Yeah, well; you can’t believe everything you read on the internet, right?

    btw, that was a RIDIculous night of good music. Ultra Dolphins totally killed shit — Nate’s multi-instrumental antics, in particular, continue to confound. Fucked Up were much better live than their record would indicate; the mosh pit of Harrisonburgers was an unexpeted bonus.

    I missed Order’s set at Outback, but I caught their second set at the house party later; they followed Invisible Hand, who continue to improve with every set. Seriously; go check their set out, if you haven’t seen ’em in a few weeks; suddenly they’re the tightest band in town, and they’ve got some new covers as well.
