Information Crush: Amy’s Shows List

April 28, 2011

Allergies are clogging my brain and I can’t think so we’ll have to see how this comes together. On Thursday, the Replacements movie, Color me Obsessed is playing early at the Somerville Theatre. Afterwards you can head over to TT’s and check out Oh No Oh My, Oranjuly and Pray for Polanski. Friday night is a night of too many choices. There’s the movie about Morphine’s front man, Mark Sandman at the Somerville Theatre. There’s the first of two nights celebrating Andrea Gillis’ cd release at the Lizard Lounge with special guests Muck + the Mires and Perfect Trainwreck. There’s a rockabilly show at the Midway with the Cranktones and the Barleyhoppers. There’s a Nancy Neon Night at the Cantab with Sticky Business (performing Bubblegum Pop Songs!). There’s The Acre, Kingsley Flood, Pearl + the Beard, Bandit Kings and Ugly Purple Sweater at TT’s. And there’s Guillermo Sexo, Mount Peru, The Russians and Muy Cansado at the Middle East Upstairs. Friday is a very busy night. On Saturday Andrea Gillis has her second night at the Lizard with special guests, the Banditas; a Tom Waits Tribute Night is happening at Pa’s Lounge with too many performers to list and at the Plough and Stars is Slim Jim and the Mad Cows. Sunday afternoon has a couple of free events with music including The Harvard Square Mayfair with Viva Viva, Spirit Kid and many others while at Brandeis you can catch Dom and Of Montreal. On Sunday night there’s A Benefit for the People of Japan with Eksi Ekso, Hooker Clops, The Wolf Hongos, Ink en Soi and No Soap Radio at the Middle East Upstairs. Monday has the Smoking Popes at TT’s and Jukebox the Ghost, Wakey Wakey! and Pretty + Nice at the Middle East Downstairs. On Tuesday there’s a night of ska music at Johnny D’s with Bad Manners, and on Wednesday The Reverend Horton Heat is at the Paradise.
