Thursday, March 26: Whatever Brains with Pink Flag, Tir na Nog
Pink Flag manage to be angry and cute at the same time. They're the girls I wish I had been in high school. The Indy's recent review of Whatever Brains' cassette-only release and 7-inch record (which has been picked up for distribution by Matador) describes them as "hooky-and-hissy" and "jagged and noisy," which pretty much hits the nail on the head.

Thursday, March 26: Proof with Medications and Edie Sedgwick, Berkeley Cafe

Friday, March 27: Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls, Slim's

Friday, March 27: John Howie Jr. & The Rosewood Bluff with Mike Slaton, The Cave

Friday, March 27: ASG with Colossus, Black Skies and Power Pellut, Volume 11 Tavern
I liked ASG's "Win Us Over," even if it was more on the polished side than I usually enjoy. Colossus and Black Skies are easily two of the heaviest bands around here.

Friday, March 27: A Rooster for the Masses, Pour House
Check for a ticket giveaway for this show.

Saturday, March 28: Mike Roy & Rob Watson CD-release party with Kenny Roby's Mercy Filter & the Kennebec Duo, Pour House

Saturday, March 28: A Rooster for the Masses, with Death to the Details and The Authority, The Cave

Saturday, March 28: Caltrop with Curtains of Night and Sled, The Pinhook
Caltrop is part of my personal trio of heavy favorites (along with Colossus and Black Skies). I'm hoping Curtains of Night will grow on me more after I see them live.

Saturday, March 28: COC Blind Volume 11 Tavern
COC Blind is Reed and Karl, plus assorted others, playing the "Blind" in its entirety.
