Show Of The Week

October 28, 2015

0 Comments

It’s Halloween weekend, so I’m assuming most of you have a litany of house parties that you’ll be attending while dressed up as your favorite superhero or blogger.  That’s fair.  However, if you decide you want to spend some prime costumed-time downtown, head to Cheer Up Charlie’s on Friday for the record release party that the wonderfully experimental Shmu is having.  There are a ton of great bands on the bill – Botany, Calliope Musicals, Alex Napping, Feverbones, Gloves Collective, New Fumes, Total Unicorn, Karla Nightblooms, Party Plants – and it’s only a $5 suggested donation.  Plus, if you RSVP you’ll get a free CD or download of Shmu’s new album, Shhh!!!!.  That’s a steal, my friends.  Do it.
