A week of Slowdown; Bright Eyes on Letterman tonight; Life After Laserdisque, Voodoo Organist tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 10:45 pm June 4, 2007

A late update on a Monday when I’m under the weather… This week’s blog entries will be dominated by coverage of the opening of Slowdown this Friday evening. Look for an enormous interview with owners/operators Jason Kulbel and Robb Nansel Wednesday where they talk about all aspects of the new club, from the sound system to the booking policy. Also look for for the story on the cover of this week’s issue of The Reader. This Thursday’s column will focus on stuff that didn’t make it into the story — specifically, the duo’s view of Saddle Creek Records (where it’s been and where it’s heading) as well as some more details about The Slowdown project. I spent a few hours Friday evening at Slowdown and can tell you it’s everything you heard it was going to be and more.

This just in, Bright Eyes will be performing tonight on Late Night with David Letterman. He’s also scheduled to be on the horrible Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson June 6.

Tonight at O’Leaver’s, intern Brendan Greene-Walsh’s band Life After Laserdisque takes the stage with Voodoo Organist, who Brendan swears is a joy to behold. $5, 9:30 p.m.
