Slowdown pic; Andrew Bird, Matt Whipkey tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:49 pm April 23, 2007

Well, no shows for me this last weekend. I’m told by someone who went to the Creighton-only Cursive show at Sokol Auditorium Saturday night that their drummer, a former member of Engine Down, was pretty darn good. We’ll have to wait until the end of May to find out.

It’s been awhile since I placed photos of Slowdown online. As you can see (click here) it’s coming along. What you’re seeing is the corner where the Filmstreams theater is housed, actually. The music hall is further north. Judging by the activity around the jobsite, they’ll have it up and running in time for their official opening the first weekend of June. It also appears that Slowdown has a new logo, judging from their website: http://www.theslowdown.com/

Tonight at Sokol Underground, Andrew Bird w/The Apostles of Hustle. Bird is out supporting his new Fat Possum release, Armchair Apocrypha, which debuted at No. 76 on the Billboard charts. $15, 9 p.m. Meanwhile, Matt Whipkey is opening for touring band The Alternate Routes at The Waiting Room tonight, along with 10 O’Clock Scholars. Whipkey’s doing a solo set with the help of Sarah Benck and her drummer from The Robbers. $8, 8 p.m.
