extended play

by Ryan Snyder

The first week of March starts with Former Champions reliving past glory Thursday at the Blind Tiger, while Toughcats, Mad Tea Party, and Red Lipstick Society play the weekly showcase at the Garage. Emily Stewart & Baby Teeth vies for “worst band name” alongside Freeflow Broadcast Corporation at the Green Bean.

Is there some party-centric holiday going on I’m not aware of? How else do you explain two nights of the Mantras at the Blind Tiger this weekend? One night only, however, are the Deluge and Wyndy Trail Travelers at the Garage. The Dotmatrix Project does Israel Darling at the Green Bean, while Jonas Sees In Color performs with Day Will Come, J Timber, American Joy and Veara Friday at Greene Street Club.

You get three bands for the price of one Saturday at the Green Bean with the Lisps, Venice Is Sinking and Mayasta Rhythm Band, while Spaceonauts, the Essex, and others to be named later play the Flatiron. Sunday is jazz night at the Flatiron with Al Neese and Scott Adair, as Marcus and Keith of the Mantras do the acoustic thing at Wahoo’s.

There’s music on Monday with Weatherbox and All Get Out, Funny Like A Funeral and Lakeview Drive at Greene Street Club. Tuesday brings local band night with the Caleb Davis Band at the Blind Tiger and the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank and David Wax Museum at the Garage.

To look ahead to next week for a moment, take note that one show in particular has popped up with little time to react. The great Robert Earl

Keen will perform at Green Street Club next Friday, March 12. Be there.
