Well, it’s plenty cold this week, but that didn’t seem to slow the music choices down any. This is one of the busiest weekends so far this year, especially Saturday, when there are so many choices it is just not fair. And, looking ahead, it is just gonna keep getting busier next month.
Thursday 19th – The weekend starts with several choices. There is a punk show at Guild Hall, a grown-ups show at the Trinity Church, a dance show at Barrelhouse South, and a punk-blues show at Jinx. Take your pick, they should all be good.
In Defence. Shiloh, Trophy Wives, Generation Pill – Guild Hall (7-11)
American Hologram, Accomplices, City Hotel – Trinity United Methodist Church (7:30, all ages, $10)
Big Mean Sound Machine (dance music with horn section) – Barrelhouse South
Gallows Bound (Appalachian punk blues), Seaboard Stompers – Jinx ($5)
Friday 20th – Another night of multiple choices. I think any of these shows will be good too. And remember, the weather will be better tomorrow!

Saturday 21st – There are way too many places I want to be today. All of these shows will be top-notch. Another night of punk at the Hang Fire, with one of my favorites, Crazy Bag Lady, who will be hitting the road for a tour soon. There is Americana at the Jinx, with American Aquarium, and I really want to see opener Nightingale News, Coy Campbell’s new band. A really fun band, Funk You (great name) is playing at the Social Club, there will be some dancing going on there. The Accomplices are opening for Caleb Klauter at the American Legion in Thunderbolt, I expect that to be an excellent show. And the A-Town Get Down Festival will be going on at the Charles Morris Center, you can find plenty of coverage of the bands there elsewhere. I also listed several other bands that I would like to catch that evening, but even I won’t be able to see all of them.
