Britt’s birthday week (really it’s like a 2 week ordeal) continues! It’s relatively low key, which means you get to spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather, but we do have a handful of smaller shows that should keep you entertained. As always, follow our adventures on social media and check back here after for photos and reviews of the shows we attend.
Sunday (3/13) –
Sounds like it’s going to be a packed house at Mercury for these high energy pop-punk bands.
Monday (3/14) –
The Monkey Wrench rooftop patio is one of our favorite warm weather spots. We’ll absolutely celebrate 11 years (and Pi Day!) with them.
Tuesday (3/15) –
Mike Silverman, aka That 1 Guy, is one hell of a talented musician, according to everything we’ve seen. I mean, he invented and plays “The Magic Pipe,” which sounds pretty amazing.
FABLES is David Ramirez’ his first album out in a couple of years. Expect plenty of poignant, personal tunes throughout the evening.
Wednesday (3/16) –
Phil Cook is one talented dude.
The New Vintage plays host to a grungy rock night with a headliner from Kansas and a couple of local (Lou & Lex) openers.
Thursday (3/17) –
Of the multiple options for the evening, this is a very intriguing one. Bone Thugs have been around for 20 years, which in itself is crazy to think.
The Whigs front man is back at Zanzabar. Last time he was here his guitar ended up in the rafters. Who knows if his solo sets are as wild as his regular sets are.
You’ll recognize Craig Finn when he walks on stage – yes, that is the man who heads The Hold Steady (love them). Titus Andronicus is known for their high-octane indie punk stuff, ideal for an early weekend/Thursday show.
Friday (3/18) –
Kick off your weekend with a living legend. The Palace tickets are pricey but probably very much worth it.
Come support your local bands, y’all.
Shooter Jennings’ sound has evolved greatly over his long career and his new album, Countach (for Giorgio), is a perfect example.
Saturday (3/19) –
Bonnie Raitt’s voice is smooth, sensuous amazingness. The Palace is hosting this blues goddess (a superb weekend for the venue) and I’d expect fans of all sorts.
The Nashville band has so many unique, twisting sounds that it’s difficult to really put into words. In other words, you need to experience them for yourself on Saturday night!
A local, loud night at Kaiju is always in order.
