Welcome Back: Upcoming shows edition

September 23, 2009
Mister Kotter, I know it's early and all, but I just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be late the day of the Chevelle show. And by late I mean not here at all. But I've got a note...

Mister Kotter, I know it's early and all, but I just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be late the day of the Chevelle show. And by late I mean not here at all. But I've got a note...

As you might imagine, while we were pulled away from regular duties to put last weekend’s FourFourFest together a thing or 20 might have happened in the local music scene that we weren’t able to tell you about. Not until now, anyway. It turns out that while we were planning one big show local venues were planning, oh, about 30-plus. How’s that for being outworked?! We’ve culled a list together of the big-deal shows coming to a local stage in the next couple of months to get you up to speed. (Note: We’ve listed the fullest schedule we know for them, but some still have openers to be announced, so stay tuned for updates as some shows get closer.) Some you’ll probably be aware of; others may be news to you. Either way, get a note from your parents and plan to skip a class or two. Reasons why after the break.

January 16, 2009
Dude, bitchin' mountains and all, but let's go home. Seriously. Anyone see the van?

Hell yeah, we took a break! We did... you know... stuff. Get the bongos! It's showtime!

Winter is nowhere near over–for God’s sake, have you looked outside?–but local bands are already coming out of hibernation. Consider: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin returns from its two-month break in a little more than a week with a show at Patton Alley Pub. Now comes word that Jah Roots, after already calling timeout on its hiatus for Bob Marley’s Birthday Bash at Remmingtons Downtown February 6, is ready with a fresh batch of shows in the spring. Color us not surprised.

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2009 Queen City Shout lineup

January 13, 2009

It’s award season in Hollywood, a chance to see your favorite celebs wear outfits you can’t pull off you can’t afford while they accept awards for pretending to be someone else. Ridiculous though it can be at times, it’s the film industry’s time to shine a spotlight on itself for its ability to entertain and, at its best, inspire. It’s also the time of year a spotlight is shown on local music: Queen City Shout, the Borders concert series conceived by the store’s music honcho and resident local-music great Eddie Gumucio. Each year Springfield’s best take over the store for performances outside their normal setting, going from smoky clubs and late nights under lights to early-evening strum sessions in a family-friendly atmosphere. This year’s Queen City Shout lineup of shows goes on for almost a month, and the first performance is only a few weeks away. The full list of artists follows after the jump.
