The Mynabirds (ex-Georgie James), Tortoise, Static Static, LC Day 2 all tonight; and the return of Mercy Rule…

Category: Blog — @ 6:18 pm October 1, 2009

Who are The Mynabirds (who are opening tonight’s These United States show at Slowdown Jr.)? Well it’s the new project by former Georgie James member Laura Burhenn. Her yet-to-be-released new album, What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood, was recorded with singer/songwriter/producer Richard Swift. You can hear a bit of it on the Mynabirds myspace page, or better yet, come down to Slowdown and hear it live. Also opening is Jake Bellows. $7, 9 p.m.

Also tonight, as if you didn’t know, is Tortoise at The Waiting Room. I didn’t think we’d see these guys again after their last show at TWR (in June 2007) didn’t sell out (read my comments here), but here they are, better than ever with a brand new album on ThrillJockey called Beacons of Ancestorship. Opening is Prefuse 73. $15, 9 p.m

O’Leaver’s has Static Static tonight with Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship and The Prairies. $5, 9:30 p.m.

And then there’s Day 2 of Lincoln Calling. The sched is below. The big LC news, announced just yesterday, is that the reunited Mercy Rule — complete with drummer Ron Albertson — will be performing Saturday night at Duffy’s as part of Lincoln Calling. I just figured out which night I’ll be heading down to Lincoln.
