I write this in a broken and battered state, having fallen flat on my ass on some icy stairs. My back and ass are sore but fine, my hands are two bloody stumps, which is why you’re not reading a review of last night’s Eagle*Seagull/Benck/Neva show. Anyone who did go, please leave us a brief review on the webboard. My personal agony, however, will likely not deter me from attending the weekend highlights, which start tonight at O’Leaver’s where Brimstone Howl, The Terminals and Autodramatics will be performing. Brimstone Howl, if you didn’t know, was formerly known as The Zyklon Bees before the Anti-Defamation League stepped in and gave the band some one-on-one sensitivity training. This is the CD release show for Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! or as I call it Seven Bangs! or Bang! x 7. released on Speed! Nebraska Records. $5, 9:30 p.m..
Meanwhile, downtown at Sokol Underground tonight it’s LA noise-rock outfit Mae-shi (5 Rue Christine Records), Lincoln’s The Show is the Rainbow and St. Louis’ So Many Dynamos (who AMG compares to Dismemberment Plan). $7, 9 p.m.
Saturday night it’s The Third Men (ex-The Sons of…) with the jazzy Iowa City combo The Diplomats of Solid Sound at The 49’r. $5, 9:30 p.m.
But perhaps the biggest show night of all this weekend is Sunday. Down at Sokol Underground it’s a four-band bill with Broken Spindles, GoGoGo Airheart, The Joggers and Flamboyant Gods, all for just $7 (Starts at 9). Meanwhile, at Mick’s, Kite Pilot takes the stage with Unwed Sailor. $4, 8 p.m.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go change the dressing on my wounds. Have a good weekend.
