Garfunkel later; O’Leaver’s now…

Category: Blog — @ 6:49 pm January 23, 2006

If you’re looking for an Art Garfunkel review, as a number of people were on Sunday, you’re going to have to wait until Thursday when the column goes online, as I describe the show and the venue in there. It’ll be worth the wait (probably). Artie was the only show I went to this weekend. Meanwhile, there’s a crapload of shows coming next weekend, not the least of which is Landing on the Moon (who I’ll be featuring online this Wednesday), Ghosty, Clair De Lune and Eagle*Seagull this Saturday at Sokol. Anonymous America/Sarah Benck is Friday at Sokol, the same night as Simon Joyner and the Wind-up Birds at O’Leaver’s.

And speaking of O’Leaver’s… local legend MarQ Manner, who has done more than his share of shows over the years, is now involved with organizing O’Leaver’s shows. In fact, he e-mailed me the following shows listing, and promises that an O’Leaver’s Myspace site will be going online Wednesday (If I get a link, I’ll post it here). A glance at the list (which doesn’t necessarily include every show, apparently some 1 Percent and Someday Never shows are missing) indicates that the venue will be plenty busy over the next couple months.

Tuesday-Jan. 31-Record Hop-Birth To Burial (Denton Texas)
Friday Feb. 10- Mi and Lau
Friday-Feb. 17–Missing Zori
Saturday-Feb. 18-Sarah Benck and The Robbers
Friday-Feb.-24-Landing on the Moon
Sunday-Feb. 26-Bring Back The Guns and The Dead Swing
Tuesday-March 7-Shuttlecock (tentative)
Thursday-March 9-Chris and Aura-Monday
Monday-March 13-Life After Laserdisque/Landing on the Moon
Tuesday-March 21-The Black Swans
Saturday-April 1-Lovekill-hooked up national touring band (tentative)
Monday-April 10-Headlights-Someday Stories
Saturday-April 15-Bloodcow/The Nerds
Tuesday-April 18-Voodoo Organist/Life After Laserdisque
Saturday-April 22-City On Film

As they say in The New Yorker, rock stars’ lives are complicated, so call ahead before attending if you’re not willing to take a chance. I’ll likely confirm most of these dates a day or so before the show, or you can always check out the anticipated O’Leaver’s Myspace site.
