Filter Kings tonight, Songs for a Cure (Hoshaw, It’s True, McCarthy) Sunday; WofW 100 is online…

Category: Blog — @ 5:49 pm July 10, 2009

All shows this weekend are local — no national acts worth mentioning (or that I know of — chime in if you know something I don’t).

Tonight at The Waiting Room the mighty Filter Kings headline a show with Cowboy Dave Trio and JJ Wills Band. Wear your shit-kickers and cowboy hat. $7, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night Brad Hoshaw opens a singer/songwriter showcase at The Saddle Creek Bar with William Fitzsimmons (He’s from Illinois, so there goes the local spin angle) and Jenny Owen Youngs. $5, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, The Mercurys play at The Waiting Room with Vago. $7, 9 p.m.

Sunday night, The Waiting Room is hosting Songs for a Cure, a benefit concert for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), that features some of the area’s best singer/songwriters. On the showbill are Brad Hoshaw, It’s True, McCarthy Trenching and Raven Carousel (Benn Sieff, guitar/vocals; Cass Brostad bass/vocals, and Jerry Kuhn, drums). The totality of your $5 admission will go toward JDRF. Do yourself and the JDRF a favor and check this one out.

The 100th Episode of Worlds of Wayne went online yesterday at Now all of you who ever wondered what my voice sounds like (or who has doubted that I actually exist) can find out by listening to the podcast. The show features Wayne Brekke and I discussing the history of WofW, his favorite guests and in-studio performances, along with music and other h-jinx. Wayne had so much material to work with that he’s split the episode into two parts. Part 1 is available now. Check it out.
