Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: March 13-19

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) –

Mayday Parade & The Maine “The American Lines Tour 2016”

Sounds like it’s going to be a packed house at Mercury for these high energy pop-punk bands.

Monday (3/14) –

Monkey Wrench Turns “It Up To” 11 Years Old

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) –

That 1 Guy

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.

David Ramirez, Lucette

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, Dead Tongues

Phil Cook is one talented dude.

The Problems, C2 and the Brothers Reed, Cousins

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) –

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony: Celebrating 20th Anniversary of “Tha Crossroads”

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.

Parker Gispert, Xenia Rubinos

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.

Titus Andronicus with Craig Finn

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) –

Tony Bennett

Kick off your weekend with a living legend. The Palace tickets are pricey but probably very much worth it.

I Can’t Drive 64 with Cereal Glyphs and Beat Awfuls

Come support your local bands, y’all.

Shooter Jennings with Waymore’s Outlaws and Colter Wall

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

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.

Backup Planet

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!

Maximon, Coconut Milk, Billy Nelson

A local, loud night at Kaiju is always in order.
