Less talk, more rock

Howdy, I’m off to the OBX so this post is gonna be brief. Let’s get to the gigs:

Saturday night, Cereal Killers make a triumphant return to Big Ash Brewing, Freekbass plays Annie’s and Spyro Gyra is at Ludlow Garage.

On Sunday, the Afghan Whigs play a hometown show at Bogart’s. Their new album came out today, I’ve yet to put my ears on it.

Also on Sunday, Southgate hosts The Everly Brothers Experience featuring the Zmed Brothers. Why yes, thanks for asking, the Zmed Brothers ARE the sons of noted 80s big haired actor Adrian Zmed, of T.J. Hooker fame. (But lest we forget — and how could we? — Adrian also took over for Deney Terio as the host of Dance Fever in 1985.

Oh, and he was quite the guest star stud on The Love Boat.

Whoops, I was trying to keep this post short but Adrian Zmed’s long and luxurious locks dragged me down the 80s rabbit hole.

Idles play the Ovation (yes, Ovation) on Monday.

Wednesday, Steve ‘n’ Seagulls (bluegrass on speed) play Southgate’s main room, The Steepwater Band is upstairs in the Revival Room, and the Peter Brady hosts blackbear, State Champs and Heart Attack Man.

The original Heart Attack Man… and still the best.

Josh Rouse is at Southgate on Thursday, with the Newbees as the opener.

Next Friday, the Watkins Family Hour is at Memorial Hall, Lung is at MOTR, and Lee Brice plays PNC, with Michael Jackson as the opener. Wait, scratch that, it’s Michael Ray and Jackson Dean. Common mistake. (Common isn’t playing either.)

Next Saturday:

  • King Buffalo plays Madison Live (I kinda like their new album).
  • Maurice Mattei & the Tempers headline the Fountain Square freebie
  • RiversEDGE in Hamilton (you can’t call it Hamiltucky anymore!) has Signs of Life (a Pink Floyd tribute band) and
  • the King of Yacht Rock, Christopher Cross, sails into Ludlow Garage.
Full story is here.

A eulogy for a radio station like 97X

I posted this earlier in the week – this 10-minute episode of The Memory Palace really struck a chord with me. If you grew up with a station like 97X or WBRU, it’ll certainly be near and dear to your heart as well. You should listen to the entire episode, but here’s the two-minute culmination:

Love the matching pantsuits!
