The Rosebuds' "Loud Planes Fly Low" was released today on Merge, and you can see them this Saturday at Kings. Surprisingly, this show is not currently sold out, but I feel certain it will be before the day of show, so get your tickets now. They won't be around here again until their July 29 show with Bon Iver at Raleigh Amphitheater. And as a side note, thanks to Frank Heath for booking that show, and The Decemberists show, also this Saturday, at the amphitheater. I truly hope both of these shows are major successes, and the city of Raleigh will finally understand that you can make money booking something besides washed-up classic rockers.
Other notable shows this week include Jack the Radio, Friday at Slim's, Make at Nightlight on Wednesday, and the CD-release party for Tom Maxwell's new CD, "Kingdom Come," Friday at Motorco.
There are also two non-show happenings you should know about: First, tickets for Kyuss' Sept. 25 show at Orange Peel in Asheville go on sale this Friday at noon. Second, The Independent Weekly is set to announce a new round of bands for Hopscotch tomorrow at 10 a.m.!
