The Show Report, 8/1: Washington Irving, we barely knew ye

August 1, 2009

Tonight marks the last show for local indie rockers Washington Irving, a farewell at Lindberg’s that also marks a return of sorts for Faatherton and the latest in a steadily growing number of concert appearances for the highly rated Ghost Dance. With singer Brett O’Neal leaving for law school in Illinois, Washington Irving hangs it up with one of the 2008’s best local albums under its belt and, hopefully, a fantastic farewell show to be remembered by. Good luck, guys.

***UPDATED*** The Show Report, 5/15: Know that we have always been down, down

May 15, 2009

311If watching GWAR ravage Remmingtons Downtown wasn’t enough of a blast from the past for local showgoers, tonight’s follow-up raises the bar another notch. 311 takes over The Shrine Mosque with opening act Full Service starting at 8 p.m. We’re prepared to party like it’s 1995 all over again. (Or choose your year of preference from the mid-’90s/late ’90s/early ’00s to party like.) With an early start time, you can hit this show as the starting point to your night, too, which leaves time to get to tonight’s other events:


The Show Report, 5/7: The precursor…

May 7, 2009

…to an epic weekend. There’s a wide variety of shows going on tonight, a perfection introduction to the absurd overflow of music entering our midst this weekend. Here’s what we’ve been able to track down tonight:

* The First Teenager Ever, Ghost Dance and Todd Balisle at Lindberg’s. It’s not often we get a show from these three artists that doesn’t involve a house party or Warehouse show. 

* The Detectives at The Outland. Bring your dancin’ shoes for the latest installment in this weekly tradition.

* 75/40 Connection and Triple Nittie at The Outland Ballroom. Hip hop returns to the Ballroom with some enthusiastic relative newcomers to the scene.

* Capt’n. Black’s Sea Dogges at The High Life Live Martini Lounge. A pirate band? Seriously?! YES!

* Black Suede and Ridge Water at Nathan P. Murphy’s. If you haven’t heard Black Suede guitarist Bobby Gardner, you’re missing one of the local blues scene’s young guns at work. 

* Art Bentley at Roadhouse Saloon

* Gas Pump Talent at Ebbets Field
