Conor Slept Here; The Bastard Sons of Del the Funky Homosapien tonight; VOTE!…

The Mogwai live review with photos will be online tomorrow. Why tomorrow? Because I used it for this week’s column in The Reader. The short version: It was big, it was loud, it was somewhat awesome, if not a bit monotonous.

Paste Magazine today published a brief history of the Farnam House/Gunboat/Frank’s Hotel, written by local music journalist Liz Stinson. Liz describes the house (located at 38th and Farnam, right across from The Brothers Lounge), interviews a number former occupants and discusses its improbable future. Read it here. My first interview with Conor Oberst back in ’98 took place in that dumpy house.

It’s a busy night for shows. Down at The Slowdown, Del the Funky Homosapien returns with Mike Relm, Bukue One and Serendipity Project. $18, 9 p.m. I believe Del sold out The Slowdown the last time he came through, so you may want to buy your tickets before you head downtown.

Also tonight, The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash play at The Waiting Room with The Filter Kings. $10, 9 p.m.

And before you do anything, don’t forget to vote!
