This week’s shows (9/20/2010-9/26/2010)

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

Monday (9/20/2010)

The show of the week is probably on Monday: Titus Andronicus, Free Energy, and Turf War at The Earl. I’ve gone on record (several times) about how much I like Free Energy, and I can guarantee this show will be a fun one. I was kind of disappointed by Titus at Pitchfork, but The Monitor is one of the year’s best. Hopefully it will be better in a rock club.

Bobby Bare, Jr. makes no-bullshit Southern rock with the hooks and amiability of classic power-pop. He plays The Earl on Tuesday with openers Blue Giant. There’s also touring psych-rockers Mondo Drag and The Main Street Gospel at The Cut in Reynoldstown (166 Stovall St), with local openers The King Congregation.

Wednesday (9/22/2010)

This is a rough night for those of us for whom “noise” isn’t a dirty word. AIDS Wolf (who are much closer to Wolf Eyes than Sea Wolf on the “wolf” spectrum) will be at 529 with Red Mass and WYMYNS PRYSYN. Eyedrum has Diminished Men, who sound like the creepier portion’s of Angelo Badalamenti’s scores for David Lynch movies. Shepherds and Glen Iris attractively fill out the bill.

Thursday (9/23/2010)

Golden Triangle brings their weirdo-jangle to 529, and it’s somehow a free show. GG King and Knaves Grave open.

Friday (9/24/2010)

The reformed Letters Organize play their third(?) show since getting back together. That’s at 529, and Hawks open. There’s also Oryx and Crake, Efren, Oh Dorian, and Richard Parsons at WonderRoot. Get there early. I’m not sure how WonderRoot handles over-capacity crowds, but I imagine we’ll find out Friday. There’s also the return (again) of Decatur Social Club, at The Marlay House. That will go all night.

Saturday (9/25/2010)

Local band Cassavetes play an album release party at the Drunken Unicorn. Their latest album, Faja Blues, is strong meat-and-potatoes indie rock, with gravelly vocals that give it some grit. Ghost Party and The Bears of Blue River open. There’s also The Legendary Shack Shakers at Star Bar.

Sunday (9/26/2010)

529’s got a good local lineup for a good cause. Howlies, Mermaids, Knaves Grave, and The Clap play a benefit show for Laura Hunt, girlfriend of local music writer Chad Radford. More info here.
