Giants in the Trees, Paste, Fools, and Paper Brain. June 30th @ 8pm at The Space

It won’t take long for this show on June 30th to sell out.  Krist Noveselic (of Nirvana fame) has a new group, and it is playing at The Space Concert Club with an incredible line-up of local acts, too.  Paper Brain, Paste, & The Fools will all round out this line-up, making this one of the most anticipated local shows of the summer.  Now, Giant In The Trees doesn’t sound like Nirvana, and frankly, this will not be an evening of music that you expect. But I can guarantee that what you will find is a new band to...

Let’s face it.  After Make Music Day, and all the other stuff that’s been going on, you’ll be wanting to enjoy the fourth of July this year with a party at your pad, to really soak in all the stuff this summer has been offering so far.  Just about every BBQ in this town will be bubbling with amazing tunes on the stereo, and that kind of musical gathering is probably something you won’t find anywhere else.  I can almost guarantee you know someone who is going to have bands in their backyard, and you can probably get a...

Fear Dog and Danny Shaw. Thursday, June 8th at 7pm. ALL AGES. Shotskis Woodfired Eats

Yay! An all ages show at Shotskis. I haven’t been to Shotskis since the ownership change, but they’re putting on a lot of shows, music, drag, and comedy. Pretty cool. And I love that they’re answering the call for more all ages shows. Fear Dog is starting to be a hot commodity in the ol’ Capital City: indie, garage, 90s influenced. Danny Shaw is a massively talented singer/songwriter. He can hold the crowd just fine and he does this medley thing that’s really cool where he plays dozens of hooks from top 40 hits. It’s quite entertaining. I hope...
