Show Of The Week

February 7, 2018


This week is a real good one for picking up high quality new albums.  Get out there.

Friday, February 9 at Sidewinder.  Good Field is having a show to celebrate their new LP, Surface Tension, which features some of this rock act’s best work. Tix are $10. Royal Forest, Big Bill and Jesse Dalton are also playing.

Friday, February 9 at Barracuda.  You’ll have to get a little creative to see both Hovvdy at Barracuda and Good Field at Sidewinder, but you can do it!  Hovvdy’s new album is titled Cranberry, and it’s full of fantastic bedroom pop tunes.  Tix are $10.  Molly Burch and Ama will open.

Saturday, February 10 at Empire.  Wild Child’s snazzy new album is called Expectations.  The super nice thing with this one (aside from getting to watch a good band play good songs) is that it’s a FREE show.  Opening for the pop act will be Modern Medicine and Robby.
