Box Elders tonight; Filter Kings, Jake’s-fest tomorrow…

Category: Blog — Tags: , — @ 12:54 pm May 14, 2010

The hot show tonight is at all-ages club The Hole, 712 So. 16th St. (formerly the Diamond Bar). Cave rock sensations Box Elders are headlining a show with Perry H. Matthew and No Bueno. It starts early (as all their shows do) at 7 p.m., cover is $6. And there’s No Booze! Afterward, head up to The Brothers, because that Hole show is the only thing on the radar tonight. Hey, there’s always the goon-rock festival over at Westfair featuring Godsmack.

Tomorrow starts off early with Jake’s “Cuz We Can” block party, hosted (apparently) outside of Jake’s in Benson. There’s no actual details as to how this showcase is going to work. Are they blocking off the street? I guess we’ll have to find out tomorrow. The line-up of local acts is top-drawer: Satchel Grande, UUVVWWZ, Brad Hoshaw & The Seven Deadlies, Matt Cox Band, Gooses, Awkwords, Conchance and Dim Light. It’s a benefit, so your $6 will go toward the ongoing publication of the Found in Benson ‘zine. Show starts at 5 p.m. and runs to 11.

Also tomorrow starting early, and also in Benson, is the Liquid Courage 10 Year Anniversary Party at The Waiting Room, whose two chief proprietors, ironically, lack a single tattoo (as far as we know). The free show features The Mercurys, Cover Me Badd and headliners The Filter Kings. Show starts at 6 p.m. and according to the 1% website, “food and beverages will be provided while supplies last.” Better get there early.

Also tomorrow night, Ragged Company is slated to play at The Barley Street with Western Electric. $5, 9 p.m.

And Sunday Simon Joyner is playing a house show at 4507 So. 15th St., start time is 8 p.m.
