This week’s profile is a massive feature on Ladyfinger that may or may not be the cover story of this week’s issue of The Reader. It was originally slated to be the cover, but now that looks doubtful, though the story is still cover-story length. It’s confusing. The story was supposed to be the main feature of The Reader‘s “music issue,” but that got pushed back until next week, which would mean this story wouldn’t run until after their big show Friday night at Sokol Underground. The band will still be on the cover of next week’s issue of The Reader along with two other bands, but not with this story (which is in the issue coming out late this afternoon).
Screw it — just read the story now. It’s right here. Chris, Jamie, Pat and Ethan talk about how the band got together, how they hooked up with Saddle Creek, how they made their new album, Heavy Hands, (including details on how they worked with producer Matt Bayles) and all kinds of other fun stuff. It’s long. It’s comprehensive. It’s Ladyfinger! And yes, I know that I’ve left off the (NE). Find out why in tomorrow’s column (which, btw, also is in today’s issue of The Reader). Yes, I believe this band could be on a rocketship, what with a primo opening slot on Cursive’s next tour and almost a month’s worth of touring in Europe. Catch them while you can this Friday. It could be a while until Ladyfinger plays here again.
Tonight, it’s Polyvinyl recording artist Headlights with Decibully and Someday Stories. Headlights just played at O’Leavers in April supporting their EP, The Enemies. Now they’re supporting their debut LP, Kill Them with Kindness. See them again. $5, 9:30 p.m.
