Information Crush: Amy’s Shows List

July 15, 2010

It’s a great week for music but man, are there some tough choices to be made. On Thursday there’s the third installment of the Third Thursday series at the Rosebud with Asa Brebner and Ray Mason. Also on Thursday is a big benefit show for Stephen Fredette at the Lizard with The Swinedells (doing their last show, I think), Pony (Stephen Fredette’s band), Frank Morey, Banditas and others. It’s a great line-up to help a local rocker. Brownboot and Pawnshop Diamonds are at the Cantab and Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, Faux Ox, We Are Hex and Who Killed Who are at Pa’s. All on a busy Thursday night! On Friday Art Beat begins in Davis Square with lots of cool happenings including Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys and Bearstronaut. Celebrate Bastille day at Precinct on Friday with the 17th Annual Bastille Day A-Go-Go. Also going on on Friday is Sidewalk Driver, The Motion Sick, Brendan Boogie & the Best Intentions and Leo Blais at TTs and The Organ Beats, The Lights Out, The Rhodes and Hey Now Morris Fader at the ME. Saturday is the second day of the Art Beat festivities in Davis Square with bands including Tony the Bookie and Sister Spaceman, for free! Also for free on Saturday if you need a dose of classic rock with Eddie Money and John Cafferty are at the Hatch Shell. Saturday night at the Lizard Lounge there’s an Americana night with Kingsley Flood, That Old Feelin, Balthrop Alabama and Science and over at Pa’s Lounge Goose Filet, The Jeddo Stars, The Battleships Cometh and Hello Ninja are playing.
