|Can you see yourself in that crowd, or a very similar one? Good.|
You know what's time consuming? Having a big kid job that doesn't allow you to write about all the rock and roll things that are happening. It takes up a lot of time! There are spreadsheets! Not to fear, the skill of time management is only somewhat lost on me and you'll get your show listings.
TL;DR;SHUT UP BETTINA - SHOW LISTINGS FOR THIS WEEK ARE HERE. Let's get to it...

[[FRIDAY, April 10:]]
Maybe you're looking for something a little quieter to do this Friday night. Maybe you'd like to enjoy some art. Leah Wellbaum of Slothrust (SZ #29) is showing some work as part of Rite of Spring. Oh, and, had you fooled, there's going to be music there, too, including a set from ZeroFest 2 homeys Sic Tic's frontman Frank Rathbone. The Living Gallery BK, 6pm LINK
Over at Don Pedro, Brooklyn Wildlife (Chris Carr, SZ #22) is putting on a whole night of music and art, and dancing in their classic multimedia fashion. We've been promised poets. We know we're at least getting Stonehenge Parnhashnakovsky, who we assume is Russian. Don Pedro, 8pm, FREE until 10 pm LINK
|See you at the Dagger Shores show, right?|
Dagger Shores (Stephen Selman, SZ #1 and Derek Hawkins, SZ #10) is putting out their first tape, and they're seriously freaking rad and not to be missed. Note: seriously freaking rad is a very technical way to describe a band w/ VAMANOS, Heavy Birds, The Royal They at Pet Rescue, 8pm, $5 LINK
If you want to head back to Greenpoint for what I'm calling "Jim Woodstock" you can see that drumming beast in The Hut #1 Band w/ Fortunate Dad, Richard Album, Bodega Bay at Aviv 8pm LINK
[[SATURDAY, April 11:]]
BIRTHDAYS! It's Jamie Frey's birthday show on Saturday (we're finally going to put up his interview tomorrow, promise!), and his band NO ICE is playing with The Planes (Stephen Perry, SZ #2 and Brian LaRue, SZ #30), and there's going to be cake. I lied about the cake w/ Bodega Bay, Happy Lives, The Noncommittals at Muchmore's, 8pm, $7 LINK
There's so much celebrating to be done this week! Blackout (Justin Sherrill, Bezoar, SZ #24) is releasing their record — which you can stream now HERE. Saturday is their release show w/ Hound, HASJ. Union Pool, 8pm $10 LINK
This is a party.
