Show Of The Week

April 18, 2018

0 Comments

As my grandmother used to say, there’s a shit ton of shows happening this week.  Here’s the deal though, there’s only two you absolutely have to attend.

The first SOTW is Side One Track One Presents: Last Ride at the Blackheart on Friday, 4/20!  The Blackheart has long been my favorite spot on Rainey (and a place I used to frequently book shows), and I’m incredibly bummed that it’s closing at the end of the month.  Thankfully, the bar is letting me throw one of its final bashes!  Come on out for Ume, Quiet Company, BLXPLTN, Basketball Shorts, Darkbird and Booher.  The show is FREE!  Must be 21+ to enter.  My goal is to rattle the Blackheart all the way down to its foundation.

The second SOTW is Screaming Females at Barracuda this Saturday!  They’re not only one of my favorite bands, but their new album, All At Once, is one of the best releases of 2018.  If you even slightly like guitars, then you have to be at this show.

Tix are $12 in advance, $14 the day of.  HIRS and Hey Jellie will open.

BONUS Show Recommendations:

Tonight:
- Ibeyi at the Mohawk

Last Saturday the great White Denim kicked off a month-long residency at their studio space, Radio Milk.  I went.  It was neat.  However, I’m more excited about their two shows this Saturday because – of course – they’re presented by my very own 101X Homegrown.  Here’s the deal though, if you want to go you should jump on tickets for yourself real fast.  The late show is already sold out, and the early show is barreling towards the same status.  Come hang with me!  The band will be doing new tunes (the ones I heard last weekend were awesome), plus plenty of fan favorites.

Tix are $15 in advance of the show, $20 the day of.

BONUS Show Recommendations:

Tonight:
- Sun June, Summer Swells, Lolita Lynne, Royal Forest at Cheer Up Charlies

While I’m pumped to see Sparta at Barracuda tomorrow night, I have to admit that my focus is on Why? at the Mohawk on Friday.  I’ve loved the indie rock-ish/hip hop-ish band since their 2005 release Elephant Eyelash, and it’s always a pleasure watching them live.  Also, my radio program, 101X Homegrown, will be simultaneously presenting a show inside of the Mohawk with rockers Major Grizz, who will be celebrating a birthday.  Obviously, my friends, the Mohawk is where to be on Friday.  So be there.

Why? with Sarah Jaffe -  Tix are $15 in advance, $18 the day of the show.

Major Grizz with Blood Pumps, Dr. Joe and Rust Never Sleeps – If you have a ticket to Why?, this one is free!  Otherwise, tix will be available at the door.

BONUS Show Recommendations:

Tonight:
- Grails at Barracuda

Thursday:

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.

There’s a variety of quality shows to pick from this week, but my eyes are largely on Wolf Parade at the Mohawk this Friday.  Last year, the veteran act put out Cry Cry Cry (their first album since 2010), and I not only placed it on my best of 2017 list, but I tagged it as my favorite WP release ever.  I bet that everything from the LP (plus the band’s older, also great tunes) will sound fantastic live at the Mohawk.  Let’s go.

Tix are $25 in advance of the show, $30 the day of.  Charly Bliss will open.

Due to timing and a post-Free Week absence of shows, my pick this week is actually for a show that’s next week.  Ha.  Anyhow, the great Destroyer is set to play the Mohawk on Monday, January 15, and that just seems like something you should definitely attend.  I can’t be there, so you’ll have to get weird for me while listening to tracks off of Destroyer’s super solid 2017 release, Ken.

The site will be on break all of next week, so I’m rolling out two recommendations today!

1)  My radio show, 101X Homegrown, is presenting a gig at The Swan Dive this Friday.  Indie poppers Shy Beast (formerly MCG) are throwing a party in celebration of the arrival of their new self titled EP, and they’ll be joined by Fort Never, Slomo Drags, Dossey, and Juan Pablo.  This is a rad, diverse local bill.  Come play.  Tix are $10.

2)  This one is actually next week!  On Monday (11/20) I highly recommend that you go and see Hazel English at Stubb’s Indoors.  Her Just Give In/Never Going Home is a fantastic indie pop album and one of my favorite releases of 2017.  I can only imagine that she’ll sound lovely in that room.  Tix are $12 in advance of the show, $15 the day of.  Julia Lucille will open.
