This week's cool shows: April 16

The T's with Suburban Sweethearts, Sadlack's
Two of my favorite local bands playing at one of my favorite drinking spots. I will unfortunately be out of town, but everyone needs to go and tell me about it. It's early (around 7 p.m.) and free. Without a doubt the show of the week.

Friday, April 18: The Strugglers CD-release party, Local 506
Take a listen to "Redeployment," off The Struggers' new CD. Pop geniuses The Never open up.

Saturday, April 19: WCOM benefit at Cat's Cradle
Featuring, among others, Prayers And Tears Of Arthur Digby Sellers, and Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies

Bellafea CD-release party, Local 506
With Curtains of Night and Robo Sapien. Free show!

Poonhounds with Delta Drift, Slim's
Check out my videos of the Poonhounds.

Friday, April 25: Dreamscapes of the Perverse at Berkeley Cafe
Symphonic Black Metal from Raleigh, without the church burning or corpse paint.

Kenny Roby, Capital City Grocery.

Kenny was in the absolutely amazing Six String Drag back in the mid-90s and now performs with his band The Mercy Filter. This is a solo show for him. I'm not sure of the time. UPDATE: It's 7-9 p.m.

Red Collar at N.C. State Earth Day Celebration
I'm guessing this is a day time show. I haven't had a chance to check out Red Collar live yet, but on the basis of their Fugazi-ish sounding CD, they're currently one of my local favorites.

Sunday, May 18: RebusFest, Rebusworks in Raleigh
Here's info sent out by Rebus gallery in Raleigh: RebusFest, a one-day event featuring art, music, and food, will be held on Sunday, May 18. Bands include The Loners, Kickin' Grass, Starmount, Monologue Bombs, The T's, and Edmund II.

We are also looking for volunteers, if you'd like to help for a shift (11:30 until 3:30 or 3:30 until 7:30), please let us know by email or phone.

Tuesday, May 20: The Sword with Stinking Lizaveta
Austin's The Sword are one of my favorite heavy bands, though I admit their new CD is a bit over the top with Stonehenge/gnome imagery. watch the video for "Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians" (see what I mean?) off Gods Of the Earth here.

I saw Stiking Lizaveta waaaaay back in 2003 and thought they were absolutely amazing. Can't wait to see them again.
