Show Of The Week

May 10, 2017


Here’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a while now – The Octopus Project’s Memory Mirror gigs!  There are three happening on Friday (7pm, 9pm, 11pm) at the Bob Bullock Museum, and they all promise to utilize “multi-sensory special-effects and experimental digital, electronic and instrumental sounds in 9-channel surround sound with immersive multi-screen visuals, rumble seats, indoor weather effects and much more.”  Oh boy.  It’s going to be rad.  Don’t miss it.

Tix are $18.  By the way, there are only tickets available for the 11pm show, so don’t wait to jump in.  Also, full disclosure, this one is presented by my radio show, 101X Homegrown.

PS – My longtime favorites Mono are playing Barracuda this Sunday.  I know that’s both the end of the weekend and Mother’s Day, but they’re always awesome.  Come hang.  Tix are $15.
