The Music Crumudgeon's preview for the Week of June 27th 2008

posted by Ramon Medina - LP4 @ 12:01 AM

Another brief round-up kids. I'm still recovering from Terrastock.

THIS WEEK'S SPOTLIGHT

Saturday, June 28
Music Makes Change
Benefit for Brazos Abiertos, featuring
Young Mammals, The Mathletes, Earnie Banks, The Wild Moccasins, News on the March, The Holly Hall, Piano Vines, & The Eastern Sea
@ Avant Garden (7PM; $10)
It's like a pummeling of solid bands I mean 8 bands? That's a hella lotta music for a mere $10 and it's a good cause. Young Mammals are the reigning pop kings, The Mathletes return after a long hiatus, The Wild Moccasins will keep you smiling, News On The March will pair well with a Lone Star or a Shiner, The Holly Hall will finally peep their heads out after too long a time away from the stage, and Piano Vines, Eastern Sea and Earnie Banks will surely keep the good times rolling. So help out a good cause and have a blast at the same time.


ALSO THIS WEEK

Friday, June 27

Super Happy Funland Benefit
featuring
John Muzak, Whitman, Treasure Mammal (Phoenix), and The Annoysters
@NOTSUOH
Wooo! Just got this from John Muzak! Sounds pretty awesome and it's to help SHFL!


The Riff Tiffs, Lisa's Sons, The Ton Tons, Fat Tony
@ Warehouse Live

On again off again faves The Riff Tiffs headline but for me it's the Ton Ton's who are the band to see here. You know the score by now amazing vocalist and a monster guitarist. ROCK!

Robert Earl Keen @ Sam Houston Race Park
Texas singer songwriter extraordinaire and I have to admit, no matter how many times I see it, the cover to his album Picnic still cracks me up.


Saturday, June 28


Hollywood Black (CD release), The Goods, Tambersauro
@ Walter's on Washington

CD release woooo but also Tambersauro's prog-o-rama goodness!

Get Busy!, featuring
DJ Jester the Filipino Fist, Ernest Gonzales, & Bad Knives

@ The Backr
oom (The Mink; 9PM)
Let the dancing begin!

The Drunks
@ Rudyard's
OK, I mean, really, with a name like the drunks do you really need an explanation?


Stone Temple Pilots, Black Francis
@ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

STP hasn't aged very well to my ears while the solo Black Francis always struck me as intermittently brilliant. So that with $8 Miller beer I'll skip this one but hey it's still worth a mention.


Sunday, June 29

Zaika (Tom Carter & Marcia Bassett), Future Blondes
@ The Mink (Backroom)
This was just added recently and what a treat! Zaika is Tom Carter (Charalambides, Mike Gunn) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Zaimph, Hototogisu, UN) Future Blondes opens. If you are a regular reader of Signal to Noise magazine this is required attendance.

The Defenestration Unit

Will TDU keep the rain away? We will see?
