Live Music/Dead Meat 2

Ho boy! Are we excited about our next installment of Live Music/Dead Meat.

Allow me to justify our excitement.

For one, the bands are just, like, a perfect fit and will guarantee a raucous evening of fun. First up is Communist Daughter, followed by 10w40, then a little Old James and finally, The Guystorm end out the night.

In case the cause for all this hubbub isn't self-evident, I'll now point out that Johnny of Communist Daughter, also of The Boxcar Restaurant in Prescott, WI, will be grillin' up catfish after his set. Exciting! 10w40, well, they just straight-up rock and if you don't know it then you've been hangin' out at the wrong rural bars and farm parties. Also exciting! And, hold on to your cowboy boots here - Old James plays, like, twice a year. And one 'a those times is usually in Texas. We're bringing 'em back up here just for you, because we love them and we love you. And The Guystorm played our inaugural LM/DM show and rocked the Turf on a Wednesday night. Far be it from us to even anticipate what they're gonna do on a Saturday at the Nomad with a bunch'a party dudes back from the damned Lone Star State. Yee haw and such.

Also exciting - complimentary catfish and game meat tastings. Duh.

And fishing giveaways!

Aw shit. If you aren't convinced yet, I GIVE UP.

Things that are exciting to me right now.

Drakkar Sauna tonight @ 7th St Entry, with openers John Swardson and Mages. 8 bucks, 8:00, 18+. I love this band, outta Lawrence, KS. Take a listen to "Mongrel of a Halfman Slave Bitch" on their myspace. I will be the one shouting out that request tonight, though if I'm any more than one sheet to the wind, I'll likely get the name wrong. Like last time.

And that, on Saturday.

The lineup for the next Live Music/Dead Meat show has been finalized:
The Guystorm, Old James (reunion!), 10w40 and Communist Daughter. We've been bending the ears of some chefs at some fabulous local restaurants specializing in seafood so we're especially excited to hook you up with some good grub.
Saturday 8/15, Nomad, 9:00, 6 bucks.

Unimpressive, sure, but we couldn't show you the one that got away.

Speaking of which, the time, it's gotten away from us! But we're looking ahead now to our next Live Music/Dead Meat party, this one on Saturday August 15th @ Nomad World Pub. The tentative plan is to grill fish on the patio, and as per usual we'll be giving away all sorts of fun crap to complement your summer outdoor fun. Tentative lineup includes our good friends in Economy Team, a special reunion performance from Old James, and Omaha band Box Elders.

And this weekend?



K.H.O. Appreciator and I will be Partying With Him at the Basilica Block Party. We hope He likes to talk about Fishing. We'll hit the nearest confessional and try to find out. The block party begins Friday night with headlining performances by The Jayhawks and The Black Crowes and continues Saturday night, headline performances by Counting Crows, The Hold Steady and Tapes 'n Tapes. Word is the show may be a sell-out on Saturday night so get there early. I guess we're not the only folks looking to talk to angels. About fishing. Insert really lame Black Crowes joke riiiiiiiight <<<< there. And done.

We're also excited about the big opener at the new Uptown venue Sauce. Friday night features The Guystorm, Economy Team and Military Special, $5 cover, 9:30 door.

Saturday check out Chooglin's record release show, featuring Dexateens, Knife World and Fonzie Scheme @ 7th Street Entry, $6 cover, 9:00 door.

And Sunday, gasp, be still my adolescent heart, the stinkin' Meat Puppets are playing @ 7th Street Entry, with Retribution Gospel Choir and Chrash. Tight bill. $15 cover, 8:00 door.
