The calm before the storm…

Category: Blog — @ 12:30 pm September 7, 2007

All in all, it looks like a relatively quiet weekend for shows. Tonight, Scott Severin opens for Matt’s Rocket Collection (AC/DC-style freedom rock) at The Waiting Room. $7, 9 p.m. Meanwhile, down at Sokol Underground, Cloven Path is sandwiched within a five-band bill that starts at 8 p.m. and costs $8. Tomorrow, Eagle*Seagull plays at The Waiting Room again (seems like they play weekly these days), this time with The Show Is the Rainbow and Columbia Vs. Challenger. $7, 9 p.m. Over at The Saddle Creek Bar, Los Angeles synth-pop band The Start (who sounds like Gwen Stefani/Madonna fronting a disco porn band) plays with TBA (again). $5, 9 p.m.

That’s actually not a bad line-up of shows, but I say “calm before the storm” in the headline because there literally are good shows every night of the week next week (Monday: David Dondero/Mal Madrigal @ Slowdown Jr.; Tuesday: Cure tribute night at TWR; Wednesday: Cursive @ Slowdown and Devandra Banhart @ Sokol Aud; Thursday: Rilo Kiley @ Sokol Aud; Friday: Okkervil River @ TWR; Saturday: The Filter Kings @ TWR; Sunday: Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s @ TWR). Better go out and buy that Red Bull right now because it’s going to be a rough week of “next mornings.”

If you think about it, check in over the weekend. I might have an update or two…
