Kohoutek, Sharron Krauss, United Bible Studies tonight

June 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments · By

There’s going to be a pretty sweet show at the Tea House tonight.  I don’t know much about Sharron Kraus or United Bible Studies, but I’ve heard good things about both and I’m eager to see them play.

…however, the main reason I’m excited about the show is that I’m totally thrilled to see Kohoutek again. They’re a heavy-psych improvisational abstract noise-rock band from DC, who have consistently been one of my favorite live acts over the past few years. They pretty much stole the show both times I saw them as opening acts at Dust, and they managed to hold their own against world-class acts Suishou No Fune and Alasehir at the Tea House last year (which is no easy feat — that show was ridiculous).  Don’t miss ’em tonight! The show starts 9pm-ish, and will most likely cost $5 or so.

OR, if yr less into the folky-/noisy-psych material, there’s also a striaght-up punk show at Dust tonight: The Timebombs, Socialcide, Shin Kick, Bomber, and Grundle.  8pm, all ages, no alcohol, if I’m not mistaken.

PS. stay tuned for an exclusive Buck Gooter interview in anticipation of Friday night’s Dust show… that one’s gonna be pretty awesome as well.

    Monkeyclaus has a recording of Kohoutek’s set from when they played with MV & EE and Grand Banks at Dust:

    The United Bible Studies/Sharron Kraus/Kohoutek show was really nice. I particularly enjoyed UBS, who packed nine people onto the stage (including Kraus) and delivered a nice rendition of “East Virginia,” a stunning a cappella number (can’t remember the name of it), and more.
