Box Elders’ tsunami, It’s True’s taser; Cowboy Indian Bear, Flobots tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 7:16 pm March 11, 2010

I’ve got some bad news for folks who were looking to pick up a copy of that Box Elders limited-release 7-inch on HoZac Records at The Waiting Room Saturday night. The band e-mailed me yesterday to say that there was a water-main break at the pressing plant. Among the damage was their record’s pressing plates, which now have to be remade, so they won’t have copies in hand until their April 5 Slowdown gig (opening for The Black Lips). Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part.

As part of SXSW’s pre-festival coverage, Spinner posted an interview with It’s True that evolved into a series of “It’s True” or “It’s False” questions. Among the truths are dismembered snakes, taser play and love letters to fans from the road. Check it out here.

There’s a lot going on tonight in Benson. At The Barley Street Tavern Lawrence band Cowboy Indian Bear will be in the house along with Kyle Harvey and Landon Hedges (Little Brazil). Quite a line-up. $5, 9 pm.

Down the street at PS Collective it’s the duo of Whipkey and Zimmerman along with All the Young Girls Are Machine Guns and Addison Wright. $5, 9 p.m.

And then there’s the big Flobots show at The Waiting Room with Maxilla Blue. Who is Flobots? They’re a Denver band that combines hip-hop, indie rock and humor/dread. They sort of remind me of Cake. Actually, more than sort of. $15, 9 p.m.
