– The only show I hit this weekend was The Gunshy at O’Leaver’s Friday night, and boy did I get the preview write-up wrong. I expected a soaring indie band, but what I got was a singer/songwriter and his guitar. I should have known better. Although this guy has just finished recording a full-length with a full band, he rarely tours with one. Everyone I talked to seemed to know this already (He’s apparently toured with Darren Keen of The Show Is the Rainbow on a number of occasions). He told me after the show that his modus operandi might change for his next tour. There weren’t many people there anyway, and only a few actually paying attention to the stage. Unfortunate.
— Regular versions of the Two Gallants story (here) and Public Eyesore story (here) went online yesterday; the Public Eyesore story was restored to its original 1,200-word version, so there’s a couple more details included.
— Look for a feature on Metric Wednesday and a column on Zero Street Records Thursday. Fun, fun.
— Tonight, hip-hop artist Hangar 18 plays at Sokol Underground with Cryptic and local artist Breathless. $8, 9 p.m.
