Before, During, and After Dungen

September 10th, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

Here’s another loaded Friday night!

Starting out, we have a couple C-ville faves rounding out the last(?) Fridays After Five of the year. Alt-folk-rockers The Hill and Wood and the powerhouse rock band Astronomers play the The Pavilion. Good to see local bands taking the big stage! This starts at… what… 5? No, that’d make too much sense, right?

Then, it’s on to the main event — all the way from Sweden, Dungen are playing the Jefferson. Dungen plays a lot of riffy atmospheric jams, reminiscent of Can or Television but, you know, in Swedish! Suffice to say, great band, and we’re lucky that it seems like they’ve chosen to make Charlottesville a staple of their US tours, which we surely owe some thanks to Danny Shea for!

After that we’ve got a couple late night options:

First, we’re throwing an afterparty/show at the Tea Bazaar, which¬†kicks off around 11:30, or whenever Dungen wraps up. Two bands on the bill: Great Dads (Adam Smith’s noise project) and Doomstar! from Boston. Doomstar! killed it when they were here last year. One of the bigger surprise hits that I recall seeing. It’s free, but please bring a couple bucks for the bands. They do have to eat burgers and put gas in a van and generally sustain themselves.

And meanwhile down at The Box — not sure how this is gonna work for Adam — Lunatic and The Rascal (aka Thomas Dean and Adam Smith) are DJing. That’ll presumably kick off around 10:30 and go til 2. It’s also free.

Okay, go see great music!

    I’m excited to hear the Young Sinclairs as well. They’ve got an album on Matt Leech’s Funny/Not Funny label, and they sound shockingly like the Byrds. should be a good live set… IF i make it that far. I may actually just collapse from exhaustion / repeated hung-over-ness some time around 8pm.
