I ended up not going to any shows this weekend. None. What’s up with that? It was a combination of the crappy weather and pulling a muscle in my back. Fact is, I knew that the It’s True CD release show at the Barley Street would be so packed that I wouldn’t be able to see or hear any of it anyway. Sure enough, someone who was there told me it was the biggest crowd he’d ever seen in the place (which only has a capacity of 40 or 50 in the showroom) — a real crush mob. It’s a shame that the show couldn’t have been held in a larger venue.
Anyway, my back’s fine now, so much so that I’m contemplating dropping in on that Marah show tonight at The Waiting Room tonight. Landon Hedges is opening, doing a solo acoustic set as Fine, Fine Automobiles. $8, 9 p.m. Marah’s out touring its latest on Yep rock, Angels of Destruction, which has a sort of chug-a-lug rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Also tonight is Ben Kweller at Slowdown with The Watson Twins and Drew Smith’s Lonely Choir. That show’s $15 and starts at 9. I have no interest in Kweller but wouldn’t mind seeing the Watson Twins, who came through a few years ago as a backup to Jenny Lewis.
