Show Of The Week

November 2, 2016


Let’s be real, if you’re a frequent visitor here at SOTO, then your weekend will surely be filled with Sound on Sound Fest.  Created by the folks who once did Fun Fun Fun, the fest is taking place on the Sherwood Forest Faire grounds and has a lineup that features Explosions In The Sky, Run The Jewels, Purity Ring, White Lung, Beach House, Cursive, Diet Cig and tons of other bands that have been frequently shared on this blog.  Neat.  Eat it up.

If, however, you’re thinking you won’t be diving into the fest, then at least hit up these smaller gigs.

1) Mean Jolene’s Record Release Party on Thursday at Cheer Up Charlie’s with Summer Salt, Haybaby, The Bond Twins and TalkiesGo get yourself a copy of Mean Jolene’s debut album, Salty!  It’s a good one.

2) Jess Williams’ Record Release Show on Friday at Cheer Up Charlie’s with Cross Record and Julian Neel.  Go pickup a copy of Jess’ new album, Heart Song.  I haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but I bet it’s good.

3) Birthday Club’s Album Release Party on Saturday Friday at Swan Dive with Lowin, Good Talk and Big Coat.  Go snatch up a copy of Birthday Club’s new EP, Lighten Up!  It’s good.
