Information Crush: Amy’s Shows List

April 21, 2011

Happy Thursday! Start your weekend off at the Rosebud for the latest installment of Third Thursdays with JJ + Thee Cuban Heels (celebrating their CD release) and Port Charles Quintet (first gig with their new guitarist). Also on Thursday is the Ladies Rock Camp Volunteer Mixer with short sets from Aerochix, Scarce, Banditas, Shepherdess, The Nosejobs, Pinecone Teeth + more at TT’s. Friday is Earth Day and there’s a free lunch time concert with The Bodeans, Colin Hay and Entrain at the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and starts at noon, hopefully it’ll be nice weather. On Friday night, let’s get ready to Rumble… final night of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble with finalists Spirit Kid and John Powhida International Airport and wildcard OldJack and special guests the reunited Shods all at TT’s. Saturday night has an Americana line up with Highway Ghosts and The Brooklyns at the Rosebud and over at Great Scott there’s Hip Tanaka (doing a reunion set), The Luxury, Three Day Threshold and Marconi. On Sunday Toad has an acoustic band from Seattle called Thousands and at TT’s there’s Hunx + His Punx and Shannon + the Clams which looks kinda groovy, with local openers The Fagettes. Monday has a night of psychedelic music with Bobb Trimble’s Flying Spiders and Fedavees at ZuZu (free show) and at Brighton Music Hall you can check out the Submarines (featuring former Bostonians Blake Hazard and Jack Dragonetti). On Tuesday there’s a night of surf music with Matt Heaton and the Electric Heaters at Johnny D’s. Wednesday has too many choices for a Wednesday night: there’s Duran Duran at Royale (but as that show sold out in like 3 seconds it really isn’t an option). There’s Ted Leo, Bill Janovitz and Drew Doherty at the Brighton Music Hall. And there’s a ukulele festival at TT’s with Davinna Yannetty, Melvern Taylor and His Fabulous Meltones, Niki Luparelli, Corin Ashley, One Happy Island, Bliss Blood and Uke Springsteen.
