Information Crush: Amy’s Shows List

June 23, 2011

Woo Hoo! it’s officially summer and there’s so much happening. On Thursday night head over to Church for The Strange Boys, White Fence, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Doomstar! There are a couple of away happenings that you might be considering. There’s Ohana Luau at the Lake in Lake George, NY where you can get your tiki on, drink rum drinks and listen to surf and exotica music. Also happening this weekend is Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival with a whole lot of great music including Wilco (of course), Neil Finn’s new band Pajama Club, Thurston Moore and many many more. If you are staying local this weekend, don’t fret tons of great shows happening. On Friday Here We Come Magic, Spirit Kid and Bell + The Bees are at TT’s; Walter Sickert + the Army of Broken Toys and Jaggery are at Club Oberon and for those south of the city Memphis Rockabilly is at the Irish Ale House, Dedham and it’s free! For Saturday night I think the show at the Rosebud is pretty killer with The Rudds, Robin Lane and the Chartbusters, Old Jack and the Ray Mason Band (and it’s a birthday party for scene guy Roy). Also happening on Saturday is The U2 Cover Up with Brendan Boogie: STU2 (members of This Blue Heaven, Shadwell, Midatlantic, Vary Lumar and Count Zero); Brendan Boogie and the Best Intentions; Party Girl (members of Eddie Japan, Joe Turner and the Seven Levels, The Callous Stars and CMGF) and Uke2 (aka Davina Yannetty) at the Lizard Lounge. On Sunday night the latest installment of This Has Been a Disaster, Thanks for Having Us with Steve Almond and Ryan Walsh is happening at Toad and if you’re on the Cape G Love and Special Sauce are at the Beachcomber in Wellfleet. Monday has Cutleri, Birdlips and Owwlfoxx all at ZuZu and TV Ghosts and The Parasites are at Charlie’s Kitchen. A show that I’ve been looking forward to seeing for a long takes place on Tuesday at TT’s , yay Sloan, Hot Kid and Devil on Horseback. On Wednesday the Legendary Shack Shakers, Wicked Whiskey and The Two Man Gentleman Band are at TT’s and Ginger Ibex, Bitch Trifecta and Rick Berlin’s Nickel and Dimed Band are at Passim. Also happening on Wednesday at the Palladium in Worcester, the oh so funky Bootsy Collins performs and I hear that he’s ready to retire so this might be one of your last times to see him.
