Girl in a Coma, Bear Country tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 6:21 pm July 2, 2009

I wish I had tomorrow off. But I don’t. Tomorrow is only the third of July, not the Fourth, so my office will be open for business. That, however, isn’t going to stop me from going to one of the many good shows happening tonight.

At the top of my list (and the show I’ll likely attend) is Girl in a Coma at The Waiting Room with Miss Derringer. GIAC is signed to Blackheart Records (Joan Jett’s label) and plays gritty indie rock that borders on punk. Joan, I’m sure, is proud. $8, 9 p.m.

Just down the street, one of the area’s best bands going — Bear Country — is playing at The Sydney with Andrew Ancona, Adam Robert Haug and Spring Acres. $5, 9 p.m. You won’t be disappointed.

Over at O’Leaver’s, low-fi punk rock dynamos Ketchup & Mustard Gas are playing with The Fergusens. $3 (a bargain!), 9:30 p.m.

Pop duo Shiver Shiver joins DJ Brent Crampton at Espana as part of the Loom series. $5, 9 p.m.

Finally, Les Claypool of Primus is doing a show at The Anchor Inn with O’Death (who we saw last November at TWR). I’ve never been a Primus fan (“Jerry Was a Racecar Driver” is the only song if theirs I ever dug) and am even less of a fan of Claypool. Still, the weather should be good and The Anchor Inn is a terrific place to see a show. $25, 9 p.m.
