Monday (tonight), RJD2 is supposed to be playing his set with a full band as opposed to his former days running turntables through a mixer. In all honesty I never caught his most recent affair where he ventured into vocal territory and have heard a mixed response. Needless to say, it wasn’t quite the Jamie Lidell crossover that we’d hoped. However, I haven’t heard it so it is ridiculous for me to say. In his defense and promotion, his past live shows have been absolutely nuts and I wouldn’t expect anything less tonight at the perpetually late Urban Lounge. Oh yeah, you would want to miss his awesome openers Dalek and Happy Chichester either.
RJD2 - "1976"
Tuesday (04.15), Blitzen Trapper, Fleet Foxes and Calico will round out a triple threat of alternative country/indie rock madness destined for The Urban Lounge. Should be a good fit considering the fact that not too long ago the drummer from Gang Gang Dance told me that playing the venue felt like some bizarre scene out the wild wild west. Recommended.
Blitzen Trapper - "Wild Mountain Nation"
Wednesday (04.16), Tuesday night’s triple threat have been beat out by the double threat of Enon and The Joggers, again, at The Urban Lounge. Forest Gospel’s pick of the week for most anticipated sure-fire live show. Hit it up!
Enon - "Window Display"
Friday (04.18), Eve 6 will be playing at The Grail!!! I can’t say that I can really remember any song from them other than that “heart in a blender” one, but oh, wouldn’t it be great to sing-a-long to that ‘ole 90’s barnburner live. SO close to being a live pick of the week it isn’t even funny.
Eve 6 - "Inside Out"
Saturday (04.19), The Devil Whale (formerly Palomino) will coincidently be releasing a CD at their “CD release show” at Kilby Court. All bets are on it being supertastic and the show should be worthy as well with support from Chaz Prymek and David Williams. Good stuff.
