How about six straight hours of music tonight? It starts at The Hole down at 712 So. 16th St. (the old Diamond Bar) with a very eclectic line-up: Godshamgod, Conchance, Well-Aimed Arrows (ex-Protoculture), Rainbow Party, and Perry H. Matthews. If you’re a post-punk fan, you’ll never find a better time to check out this new all-ages venue. No booze! $6, 7 p.m.
Who knows how long that show at The Hole will last, but figure it’ll be over before 11. Next stop is The Brothers Lounge, where tonight Conchance, Her Flyaway Manner and Broken Spindles will be performing as a fund raiser for the Donut Hill Skatepark Project. $5, 9 p.m. More info on the Donut Hill project page in Facebook.
Last stop is O’Leaver’s, where Digital Leather has its SXSW send-off show with Lafayette, IN, band Boy Toys. According to a Facebook message from DL received yesterday, this show won’t start until 11, and Digital Leather won’t go on until midnight. Still, O’Leaver’s lists a 9 p.m. start time. Hopefully, it really is starting late. $5.
That’s not all. There’s a great show tonight at Slowdown Jr. tonight with Bazooka Shootout, The Rouge, The Photo Atlas and headliners Landing on the Moon. $7, 9 p.m.
Saturday night is just as busy show-wise. The big one is Box Elders, Baby Tears, The Yuppies and Well Aimed Arrows at The Waiting Room. As I mentioned yesterday, those new Box Elders 7-inches won’t be available, but those Baby Tears singles probably will be (and they’re worth picking up). $7, 9 p.m.
Also in Benson, singer/songwriter Brad Hoshaw is celebrating (suffering?) his 30th Birthday at The Barley St. Tavern with Landon Hedges (Little Brazil), Kyle Harvey, Matt Cox, Nick Karl, Hubble, Rock Paper Dynamite, the amazing Son of 76 & the Watchmen (from Lincoln) and, hopefully, a few tunes by Brad himself. $5, 8 p.m.
Finally, Sunday night at The Barley St. Tavern is the It’s True send-off party. The event will include the playing of their unreleased album in its entirety, a screening of footage from a documentary being made about the band by John P. Campbell, and a live performance by It’s True. Only 65 tickets to this event will be available, at $15 each. For more info, go to the event’s Facebook page.
