Wednesday at the Tea Bazaar, Film Society

April 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

Well, the WTJU marathon is now over, and life is returning to something resembling normal (unfortunately it’s also returning to cool & rainy, but I’m not too disheartened).

Anyway I want to give a special shout-out to two of my favorite shows on the marathon, which both came in on the last day and may have escaped many folks’ notice. The Open Seas show, by Paul and Orion of The Open Field, was a wonderfully great slice of summer afternoon radio; it’ll be a shame to lose those boys when they move to NYC this summer. And Don and Tyler’s Meanest Jukebox in Town show had me giggling like a maniac while I cried in my beer. Great stuff! I got tapes if anyone wants copies.

Tonight DBB is playing at the Tea House; after that stellar Garage show two weeks ago, I’m excited to see what this one will sound like. He’s playing with Embarrassing Fruits, whom I’m told are interesting, and apparently Lost In The Trees has just been added to the bill; perhaps Jacob knows a little more about those bands?  I’m pretty clueless myself, but I’m going to head over and check it out after the Jim Waive set at the diner.

Oh, and the last Film Society screening of the spring is tonight. It looks like a fun one, too:  it’s the 1960 Roger Corman version of “Fall of the House of Usher,” with Vincent Price. It’s at Vinegar Hill at 7pm … I’ll just be getting off work then, but I very well may stick around to check it out, since I’ve never seen it and it looks awesome.

    lost in the trees is orchestral music packaged as indie rock. they are kinda stiff and serious.
