Robot, Creep Closer, Bear Country tonight; The Monroes, Ladyfinger tomorrow…

Gad, I hope it warms up. It was too cold and I was too tired to make it out to Black Keys last night. Anyone go?

The cold and fatigue won’t stop me this weekend, though. Here’s the run-down as I see it:

Tonight at The Saddle Creek Bar, Cory Kibler and his band, Robot, Creep Closer, take the stage along with Humland and Gypt. Cory sent a copy of their latest CD, She Beeps, which I’m listening to as I write this. It sounds sorta grungy, sorta Pixies-ish, lots of power chords, very indie. In a nice, handwritten letter, Cory tells me that the band “consider The Pixies, Spoon, Cursive, Modest Mouse and AC/DC as influences.” His letter says the openers tonight are actually Her Flyaway Manner, though that’s counter to the SCB website, unless HFM is really Gypt. Humland, he says, is “Matt Mortinosky & ex-Marianas & ex-Keller Hamilton” — I’m not sure what the last part means. $5, 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, tonight down at Sokol Underground, it’s Bear Country with Cap Gun Coup and The Skull Krushers. An all-local line-up? I don’t know. $7, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night it’s The Monroes with The Diplomats of Solid Sound at The 49’r — it’s always a fun night when Speed! Nebraska is in the house. $5? Around 10 p.m.

Meanwhile, tomorrow night down at Sokol Underground, the return of Ladyfinger with Back When and Mal Madrigal. If the show follows the One Percent online listing, Back When is the headliner. An all-local lineup? You bet. $7, 9 p.m. Parking warning: There’s a River metal show upstairs that starts at 7.

See you at the show.
