Tonight amidst the tents and madness that is the College World Series, The Slowdown says goodbye to the cover bands and heralds the return to regular programming with the hottest ticket of the weekend: Ladyfinger and Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship. And the best part: the ticket is free. This late show starts at 10 p.m. Hopefully by then the fans will have begun to leave and there will be some parking within a mile of Slowdown…
Also tonight, Bear Stories plays at The Barley Street Tavern with world-famous act TBA. $5, 9:30 p.m.
Up the street at The Waiting Room Rock Paper Dynamite headlines a show with Snake Island, Dim Light and The Decaturs. $7, 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, across town at O’Leaver’s, In Love headlines a show with Everyday/Everynight, Field Club and Joe Champion. $5, 9:30 p.m.
And then Saturday…
