Two Gallants epilogue; Bonnie Prince Billy tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:54 pm October 17, 2006

A follow-up to the Two Gallants’ drama. Just about every music outlet on the web has covered the incident, including and, of course, Pitchfork. And there are tons of blogs covering the fracas, including this one. Also as a result of the rigmarole, Thursday’s Lazy-i column will focus on YouTube and will mention the incident. Again, could Saddle Creek and Two Gallants ask for better (or at least, more) publicity, even if it costs the band some more jail time and/or fines? Guess that’s up to the band to decide…

Tonight at Sokol Underground Bonnie Prince Billy along with Dapose‘s Vverevvolf Grehv. Who remembers the last time Will Oldham came to town? I do. It was back in August 2001 at The Music Box. Simon Joyner opened the show, and Pinetop Seven did an amazing set. Oldham stumbled on stage last along with has band of very strange musicians. They created about 30 minutes of droning noise that featured Oldham mumbling words incoherently while some spook stood at the front of the stage and stared at the crowd (that appeared to be his only job, to be the official goon). Not one of the best shows of 2001, not by a long shot. But hey, that was five years ago. I’m sure things have gotten better for Oldham by then. He’s certainly turned out to be a helluva an actor (Junebug, Old Joy, etc.). And his new album, The Letting Go, has been getting raves. $15, 9 p.m. If you prefer to dance instead, drop in at O’Leaver’s for Chromatics, who’s playing tonight with Glass Candy and Eagle’s Blood. $5, 9:30 p.m.
