Posters at the Taphouse, Caninos at the Tea House, and old-timey Burlesque at the Jefferson

September 23rd, 2010 · 3 Comments · By

Sorry for the late post today, folks, but here’s the deal with what’s going on tonight:

The always-excellent Hilarious Posters are playing at the 12th St Taphouse tonight, and for once they are quite literally living up to their band name:

… I should definitely note that this show was originally gonna be on Saturday, with the Capstan Shafts opening — that is NOT the case, it’s actually happening tonight, and the openers are Elephant Child and Demon Beat. Elephant Child are that band from Harrisonburg that I seem to recall sounds a little like a good grunge band with a horn section? (Maybe I’m mis-remembering?) Anyway the Posters are really great, and this should be a fun/interesting place to see them. I have… absolutely no idea whether there’s a cover charge or not? The last show I went to at the Taphouse has a surprise $5+ fee at the door, so if you know the deal with whether tonight costs anything, let us know in the comments.

Also, there’s a gig at the Tea Bazaar with the much-beloved local Caninos playing their amiable country-ish pop-rock, along with “a band called Agent Ribbons who I think could be really really great,” quoth Jacob.

Also, Danny just let me know about this thing called the Yard Dogs Road Show at the Jefferson; he days it’s “a Vaudeville, Burlesque show with live music… a real production & a great fit in a historical theater…” Sounds like it could be a lot of fun. I also saw the Derby Dames tweeting about it, so that’s a mark in its’ favor as well. If that’s your cup of tea, why not check it out?

    Yeah, Demon Beat: Part Hendrix, part Blues Explosion. Cool. Elephant Child = great. Posters were surprisingly heavy last night too. Looking forward to their Elf Power show.
