Show Of The Week

October 5, 2016


Even if you’re set on seeing the great Kendrick Lamar at ACL: Volume 2 this Saturday, you should consider heading to Sidewinder at some point for Bill Ball 2.  The massive show is set to feature Big Bill (of course, it’s their party), Basketball Shorts, Deep Time, Xetas, Mom Jeans, Que Pasa?, US Weekly, Sherman’s March, Zest of Yore, Masculine Pain, MeanGirls, Plutonium Farmers, Body Pressure and Catalina La O.  That’s 14 good bands for $15 solid bucks (or $10, if you buy tix before Saturday).  Get in on that deal, folks.

By the way, on Saturday I’ll be working with Red Bull Sound Select at Empire Control Room & Garage.  That one has Tory Lanez, Mick Jenkins and Smino, and it’s just $3 if you RSVP.  Come join if Kendrick doesn’t all the way scratch your hip hop itch.
