Jonathan Tyler & Northern Lights/The Orbans/Quaker City Nighthawks (Granada Theater)
Performance by Mr. Tyler have become rarer and rarer these days. For that matter, The Orbans seem to be laying low these days as well. Here's an all too rare chance to see both.
Dead Beat Poetry/The Black Frames/The Klanks (Crown & Harp)
The Black Frames' indie-pop style is sandwiched in between the more straight ahead rock styles of both The Klanks and Dead Beat Poetry. The one thing all three bands seem to have in common is that not enough people know about these bands. Do yourself a favor, and if you're needing some new bands to check out, go to Crown & Harp and discover these hidden musical gems. And yes, I booked this show, so feel free to say I'm biased. But maybe you should go to the show to see WHY I booked these bands.
Hares on the Mountain (The Free Man)
The band has Ryan Thomas Becker in it. Enough said.
The Colony Block Party (7112 Elliot Court, The Colony)
This is an outdoor event with a lineup overloaded with good bands. Ducado Vega, The Gypsy Bravado, The Neckties, Sayonara, The Klanks, and Dead Beat Poetry are all part of this event. For more details, click here.
Goodnight Ned/The Roomsounds/Dead Mockingbirds (Bryan Street Tavern)
Word is that Goodnight Ned is working on their first full length, to be released in the next few months. This is a band has has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years, so if you haven't seen them recently, you should remedy that situation.
Case in Theory/Gray the New Black/Always the Alibi/The Demigs (City Tavern)
Case in Theory is a good band from California, but do yourself a favor and get there early enough to catch Chris Demiglio and his band The Demigs bust out their Pixies/Pavement style rock anthems. And Gray the New Black puts on an excellent show as well.
Emmeline (Two Corks and a Bottle)
Because an Emmeline show is always a fun thing.
And don't forget to post any shows I've omitted in the comments section.
