The Show Report, 10/16: I wanna find one face that ain’t lookin’ through me, I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these…

October 16, 2009

bruce-springsteen-2Tonight brings a show your humble Show Report writer has been anticipating for a long time: An all-star cast of performers, including members of The Eric Weiler Band, The Bootheel, The BoogeyMen and more combine talents in a Bruce Springsteen tribute at Lindberg’s. Why, you ask? It’s National Boss’s Day, and how better to pay tribute to bosses than to pay tribute to “The Boss.” The night will start with a special treat: An all-acoustic set by Eric Weiler (of The Eric Weiler Band) and Todd Balisle (of The Bootheel) playing all of Springsteen’s 1982 album Nebraska.

Lots more after the break, too. Get ready to barhop.

We’re betting it includes this classic, plus more than a few other tunes instantly recognizable to fans.

The Show Report, 7/2: Absence makes the heart grow fonder

July 2, 2009

It’s not often we see A Fond Farewell on a concert lineup, but tonight the group emerges to play Nathan P. Murphy’s with impressive young singer-songwriters Anthony Narvaez and Blake Anderson. Don’t think the thoughtful songwriting ends with the openers, though; A Fond Farewell knows a thing or two about writing music both clever and catchy. Doors open at the customary 8 p.m.; watch for music to start around 9.

The Fourth of July may be just two days away, but we’re not limping into the holiday weekend musically. There’s plenty to see and hear tonight, including:
