The Show Report, 6/9: The only constant is change

Jonathan Richman, playing The Outland tonight

Jonathan Richman, playing The Outland tonight

Tonight is a night for breaking from the ordinary, at least if the show lineup is any indication. Think you know who is playing in your favorite music spot tonight? Prepare to be surprised.

* Tonight is Open Mic Night at The Outland, yes? No. The always-active South Avenue music club throws a curveball tonight with the music of Jonathan Richman, which we can best describe as observational humor set to a tune.  

* Tuesdays were once ’90s Night at Lindberg’s with Teen Spirit holding the room down, but tonight is an off night for Indiana college-rock group Gentlemen and Scholars (they played St. Louis last night and travel to Manhattan, Kansas tomorrow), so they bring their high-energy sound to the historic Springfield stage instead.

* Ready for dance night?! WTF, you say. It’s true. Makeout debuts tonight at Riad, featuring Johan and Francis Rizzudo of Black Box Revue. Party inside and outside on the patio. Who can resist?
