The Velvet Lounge schedule is chock full of shows I want to see. Or maybe it’s chock a block full. Regardless, I’ve got to find some way to go to these shows:
Thursday, Wise Light Born (mem. of Barkitecture/Meadows/Antlers/Baby Killer Estelle), Adventure (Carpark), EAR PWR (Asheville electro-pop), this show raises my eyebrows of doom and makes me scratch my chin. And it’s only $7!
Friday, Girl Loves Distortion (CD release!), Relay (shoegaze/psych-pop from Philly, Bubblecore), Timberwolf Division (ex-Ropers/Sounds of Kaleidoscope/Fretblanket/Owls & Crows), Himalaya (ex-Three Four Tens, NYC shoegaze/ psych-rock), how can a guy miss this show? The sheer number of explanations and genres mentioned would probably rouse even fulsome from his decades-long hibernation. All this for $8!
Next week, Stella Schindler, Rose, and the Blueheels are playing on the 3rd. Two women I have been hoping would play a show together have responded to my subconscious wishes. I hadn’t heard of the Blueheels until tonight, but damn, I like their music. If I lived in Madison, Wis, I would be going to their show on the Memorial Union Terrace on the 31st of August. I guess you call the sound alternative country or indie american or some shitty description for music that always seems to fail at describing music I like.
Also up next week, First Monday of the Month at Iota Club and Cafe.
I’m pretty broke, so if people could put Chuckles on the list at the Velvet Lounge, I’ll blog about your show.
