This week’s shows (3/21/2011-3/27/2011)

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears

Tuesday (3/22/2011): This is one hell of a Tuesday.  Nude Sunrise (noisy rock from Chicago) will be at The Cut in Reynoldstown, with Nerdkween, Hungry Hungry Humans, and local comedian Karen Hilton.  The ATL Collective is doing Bob Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home at Eddie’s Attic with featured artist Molly Parden.  San Francisco’s Moon Duo plays with locals Lyonnais at 529.  Moon Duo plays droning, minimal psych-rock that lurks like Suicide and strides like Neu!, and this should be a great show.  On another night, it would be hard to beat hardcore supergroup OFF!, the new band fronted by Keith Morris (Circle Jerks, Black Flag) and featuring lifers that have done time in Burning Brides, Hot Snakes, and Redd Kross.  Trash Talk and Predator are also on the bill.  Luckily, OFF! also plays an in-store at Criminal Records at 6:00, which makes tonight’s decision a whole lot easier.  I can’t say I’ve really listened to The Joy Formidable, but I’ve heard good things – they’ll be at The Earl with Mona and Brahms.  Finally, the most sure thing on Tuesday is probably Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and Those Darlins at The Earl.  Black Joe Lewis might shamelessly crib his some of his moves from James Brown, but he is undeniably a fantastic frontman in his own right.  His band’s revved up soul and blues is a hell of lot of fun.  And I think I’ve made it clear that I’m a fan of openers Those Darlins.

Wednesday (3/23/2011): The Cave Singers will be at The Earl with Lia Ices.  WonderRoot has A. Grimes, State Champion, Backwords, and Snake Shark and Broken HeartNigredo, Manray, The Bronzed Chorus, and All Dinosaurs will be at 529.  Drunken Unicorn has electro/dance from Starfucker, Casiokids, and Sonen.  The Music Room has New Terminus, Author’s Apology, and Supervisor of the Loveless Average.

Thursday (3/24/2011): Red Sea, The Shrapnelles, Topless Mongos, and Street Violence play The Music Room.  Royksopp plays the Masquerade with John Hopkins.  Vinyl has An Horse, Sealions, and A: the Color.  Weedeater cancelled, but Zoroaster, Stone Mountain Freeway, and Demonaut is still a solid metal lineup at The Earl.

Friday (3/25/2011): In case you haven’t heard, the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group show at Variety Playhouse this weekend is probably a Mars Volta show.  There’s metal at 529 with The Body, Whitehorse, and Aku You.  Punk legend Mike Watt headlines The Earl, with LITE and Ricer.

Saturday (3/26/2011): Free Moral Agents (featuring Ikey Owens, another Mars Volta member) headlines the Drunken Unicorn, with Odist and JungolSugar and Gold, Yip Deceiver, and Grandchildren will be at 529.  Yip Deceiver is an of Montreal side project that sounds promising.  Jessica Lea Mayfield, Daniel Martin Moore, and Dead Confederate’s Thomas Hardy will provide alt-country at The Earl.
