LOOM at the Pink Warehouse

November 16th, 2011 · 1 Comment · By

The fine folks at The Garage have put together a show tonight, which will be happening not at The Garage itself (somewhat thankfully, with this weather), but at Charlottesville’s infamous Pink Warehouse. Even if you don’t know all the tales about that warehouse (i.e various notable DMB gigs in the 90’s, and innumerable other semi-legendary parties of yesteryear), I’m sure know the building itself; it’s that big light-pink warehouse on South Street. I don’t think there’s been a show there in quite some time, but there is one tonight; maybe it’ll become a regular thing?

Anyway, the band that’s playing is the Loom, from Brooklyn. I haven’t really checked out their music myself, but folks with good taste seem to like them, so it may be worthwhile. They last played in town about a year ago, at which time Sarah said: “we’ll recommend them to fans of The Love Language and The National and probably also Chapel Hill’s Lost in the Trees.” Sam adds that they’re touring “support their debut album “Teeth” which has received notable acclaim from The New Yorker, Daytrotter and a number of other publications. Please join us on the second floor of the Pink Warehouse (100 W. South Street) for a special acoustic show. The Hill and Wood join in on the fun at 8PM.” Sounds like it could be a really nice, unique event. Sam adds: “BYOB and some cash for the band.”

Please note that while some sources have erroneously listed this show as happening tomorrow night, it’s definitely actually happening tonight!
