This week(end)’s shows (1/13/2011-1/16/2011)


Now that the roads are mostly clear, I think it’s safe to assume none of these shows are going to be canceled.

[EDIT: Scratch that.  Kylesa will no longer be playing The Earl tonight.  That show has been rescheduled for 1/31, but without Zoroaster.]

Decisions to make tonight.  Indie rock stalwarts The Walkmen have never been my favorite, but I understand the live show is pretty great.  On a slower night, I would catch their show at Variety Playhouse just to see openers (and Little Advances favorites) Lower Dens play such a large room.  It’s not a slow night, though.  For me, the really tough decision is between Savannah metal heroes Kylesa at The Earl and Obits at 529.  Kylesa is touring behind one of last year’s most critically acclaimed metal albums, and they’ve got excellent support in locals Zoroaster and New Jersey’s Fight Amp.  That show should be fantastic, but I just can’t deny Obits, the current project of ex-Hot Snakes/Drive Like Jehu/Pitchfork co-frontman Rick Froberg.  Obits might not deal in the same gloriously snotty abrasion as Hot Snakes, but they’re still cut from the same basic cloth.  Wizard Smoke and Barreracudas open.

It’s strange to see an all-local lineup at The Masquerade, but tomorrow night features a pretty great one:  Ruby Velle Trio, Noot d’Noot, and A Fight to the Death.  If you haven’t already downloaded that free Noot d’Noot improv set from New Years Day, get that here.  There’s also the return of local folk-punks The Long Shadows, with Sleeping in the Aviary and The Mad Flight at 529.  The Earl has a triple bill of heavy psych-rock from Sovus Radio, All the Saints, and The N.E.C. If you want a quieter option, check out Adron, Christ, Lord, and Beau Victoria at WonderRoot.

I know I tell you to go see Oryx and Crake all the time, but this time it’s different.  Their opening set at The Earl on Saturday will be a pared-down, experimental affair that will include a couple of new songs.  More details about that hereThe Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (featuring Sean Lennon) and Julianna Barwick also play.  There’s also a great bill of noisy, dissonant rock at 529, with sets from locals Untied States, Aku You, and Skin Jobs.  Highland Inn Ballroom has a fairly eclectic bill with A: the Color (kinda proggy), Little Horn (kinda folky), and New Terminus (straight ahead rock).

Sunday (1/16/2011)

Locals A. Grimes, Hollow Stars, and WI FE (Balkans side project) play The Earl.  A. Grimes recently put out a great free EP loaded with ghoslty organ and clanging guitar.  Get it at their Bandcamp page.

  1. Thanks for your article. One other thing is that often individual states have their unique laws that will affect homeowners, which makes it very hard for the our elected representatives to come up with a brand new set of recommendations concerning property foreclosure on homeowners. The problem is that each state offers own laws and regulations which may have impact in an undesirable manner when it comes to foreclosure procedures.
