Tea Bazaar show tonight; Radio Bistro afterwards

April 9th, 2012 · 1 Comment · By

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show should be fun; despite not even existing a few months ago, L’ecole pour minous now seem to be playing about one show a week; sadly, due to a combination of circumstance, misfortune, and double-booking, I’ve yet to actually hear them play (and sadly, I will miss them again tonight!). But I’m certainly interested to check them out eventually, since I’ve heard good things about them, and Sam Turner has a pretty good track records of bands that he’s been in before (VHS and the Babies, Hilarious Posters, plus also Nekrolog although I never got to hear them). Also on the bill are Doppelganger, which is basically the songwriting half of the dearly departed Northern Diver; it’s cool to know that Bailee and Danny are still doing stuff, and that they’re still playing together (though I’ve only heard them separately since the bands dissolution). {Update: I’ve now heard that it’s a possibility that Bailee and Danny might not play? It’s currently being sorted out, I’ll let you know if I hear anything definitive by the time of the show). The “headlining” act is Arrah and the Ferns, whom I believe are from Philadelphia (?). Here’s Sam’s hilarious poster:

… the Tea House closes at midnight, you should come by the C&O afterward for Radio Bistro!  I think it’s just gonna be me DJing tonight (Adam Smith was originally scheduled to co-host, but he’s a busy man so that’s looking unlikely). It’s the standard situation; no cover charge, music of many genres from 10pm to 2am; not for dancing, but for drinking and socializing and enjoying.  (I certainly didn’t want anyone to think it wasn’t happening, after last week’s absence; we’ve been doing it for a year now, and were bound to slip up on the scheduling sooner or later!)  Hopefully I’ll see you there, if not this week then some time soon.

    Actually we play either seven or eight times each week. (Every other Sunday there is an afternoon show in addition to the usual evening show.)
