Information Crush: Amy’s Shows List

July 29, 2010

Another week, another chance to catch some great live music. On Thursday you can start early either at Toad with Melvern Taylor at 7p or go to Church and check out Tsunami of Sound at 8:30p. Later on catch the Avengers (with Penelope Houston) at TTs. Friday night the original line-up of Living Colour is at Harper’s Ferry. Also on Friday is a big benefit show at the Midway for Joe Coughlin with special guests Classic Ruins, Richie Parsons, Philly Roy All Stars, Johnny and the Jumper Cables, Chandler Travis, John Powhida, Roy Sludge Trio and Lenny Lashley. This is the weekend of the Newport Folk Festival with a really impressive group of people on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday at Newport has Andrew Bird, Calexico, Blitzen Trapper and more while on Sunday The Swell Season, The Avett Brothers, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and more are performing. If you’re not headed to Rhode Island, don’t worry, there’s still lots of great shows locally for you to see. On Saturday The Rudds are at Johnny D’s with Super 400. While The Continentals, The Willows and Watts are at Precinct. Sunday at Toad you can see The Asa Brebner Band for free. Another free option is north of the city in Georgetown with Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents at American Legion Park. Monday night has some really tough choices (what’s up with that anyway?). Hey Marseilles is at TTs for an early show and I heard they were great last time they were in town. Also on Monday local band the Banditas are at Charlie’s Kitchen. Not to mention there’s Chameleons Vox (Marc Burgess with the Curtain Society) and Endless Wave at Hennessey’s. Wow, busy busy Monday. Tuesday might be a good night to go to the Pavilion for Keane and Fran Travis to hear some melancholy pop. And on Wednesday Spouse and Saint Solitude are at TTs.
