This week’s column is last Sunday’s live review/comment about the Memorial Park Gomez concert fiasco, so if you missed it, read it here. The original plan was to run my interview with John McCauley of Deer Tick as my column, but The Reader wanted the Memorial Park thing in that space and pushed Deer Tick as a separate feature story. The article is written in more of a column style, with McCauley — a singer/songwriter who spent a few years booking his own tours — talking about how he stayed with it and got “over the hump,” which seems to be the dream of every local singer/songwriter that I know. Read that story here. Deer Tick is opening for Jenny Lewis a week from today at The Slowdown. Tickets are still available for $16, though Val Nelson at Slowdown said in her weekly mailer that the supply is dwindling, so you better get yours now if you haven’t already.
Speaking of shows, Outlaw Con Bandana has its album release show for Faeries and Rewards tonight at The Immaculate Conception Church Bowling Alley at 25th and Bancroft. The vinyl-only 14-song opus is being released by Slumber Party Records. Also on the bill are The Praries, Box Elders and Sarah Xiong. For your $10 you not only get a night of music, but free bowling from 9 until 10:30 — now that’s a deal! Something tells me this is going to be a lively crowd.
Also tonight, Leeds funk/soul band The New Mastersounds is playing at The Waiting Room with Moon Taxi. These guys could give Satchel a run for their money. $12, 9 p.m.
