nice music, nice folks at the Garage tonight

August 10th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

First things first, here’s the last few weeks’ WTJU playlists on the Rock Department blog…

Now that that’s out of the way, let me remind you of a pleasant show at The Garage tonight. Kate says: Our Los Angeles based friend, Emily Lacy (minimalist folk, beautiful voice) will be headlining with special guest Ilo Mar (Neil Young inspired, americana/experimental/folk). Also, one of our favorite local musicians, Jameson Zimmer, will be openining!  It will surely be a night full of well-written and refreshingly simple songs. The show is set to begin at 8:00pm sharp rain or shine.

So that should be a nice show.  Emily is actually a friend of mine from college, and it’s always pleasant to see her over on the East Coast; she did a show at the Tea House last November that was really fun (at which Jameson played as well).  And I haven’t actually seen a set of Jameson’s since he came back to town, but I did see the last one before he left, which sort of hilariously devolved into a stand-up comedy routine, with cartoons. It was pretty priceless.

So come to the Garage tonight and check it out! It’s free, and I think Greg’s suitcase show is still up (and lots of cool art pieces are still available).

    oh yeah, Melamine is Gerrit Rossler’s group, I believe… been meaning to check them out.

    Jacob was, I believe, out in Sugar Hollow, where cell-phone signals are nonexistant.

    { … and for those who don’t know, Jon means “12th St Taphouse” when he says “the Tappy.”}

    How’d the thing go? the Garage was nice. Emily’s set was great, and Jameson gave a brief motivational speech (with illustrations of pre-Cambrian insects)
