On hiatus; a glance at the week ahead…

Category: Blog — @ 1:11 pm May 27, 2005

Lazy-i will be on hiatus for the next few days as I head to over the water for some well-deserved R&R. In addition to sleeping, I’ll be spending the plane-ride over catching up on reviews, so you’ll have that to look forward to when I get back, as well as my take on Dublin’s edgy music scene.

So what am I going to miss while I’m gone? All the hot action is on Sunday night:
Kasabian w/Madaction and Rock ‘n’ Roll Soldiers at Sokol Underground. This could wind up being a classic “I-was-there” type of show, depending on what happens to Kasabian in the next couple years. $10adv/$12 DOS.
— No Things w/Rocket FM and Haywood Yard at Duffy’s in Lincoln. No Things is the new project by former Mercy Rule drummer Ron Albertson and Opium Taylor’s Pat Nature. After getting booted from The Liars (a band they formed), the duo rebounded with this new ensemble. This is a must-see show. $5.
Anonymous American w/Sarah Bench and the Robbers at Shag. Shag is the former Funnybone comedy club which, like all business in that area, is doomed to extinction after the dreaded overpass is completed. $5, 7 p.m.

What else?

— Next Thursday is Pinback at Sokol Underground with Pit er Pat. $12.
— Next Friday is Little Brazil w/Clair de Lune and Fromanhole, also at Sokol Underground. $7.
— And then there’s a handful of shows at O’Leaver’s by bands I don’t know, starting tonight with io, The Atlas and Life After Laserdisc; tomorrow with Red #9; next Thursday with Valient Thorr and Rent Money Big, and next Friday with VCR, Life After Laserdisc and Fizzle Like a Flood. O’Leaver’s shows are somewhat tentative in nature, so don’t blame me if you show up and the bands cancel or you’re stuck listening to bad local metal.

See you when I see you…
