solid gold

if you blew it and didn’t score tickets for gene ween @ the entry this week *jealous sucka?* there is still a chance for you to catch some great live music..

local dark & dreamy synthpop [think LCD soundsystem / love & rockets] solid gold are playing in the mainroom @ first avenue next friday (15th) w/Look Book, Marijuana Death Squad, and DJ Real Jaguar… doors @8pm ($15) | get tickets here

i hate to send anyone to a myspace page but it’s all they have – so – listen to solid gold here

if you can’t make that show (or if, like me, you really dig their dj sets) catch them at the uptown bar “west rocks” party on the 23rd (10pm – prob $5)

story of the sea

i accidentally caught the last half of “story of the sea” @ the triple rock (social club) last night.. had I known they were opening, i would have come earlier and caught the whole show – luckily for me (and you) they are playing again next month with another old favorite, the life and times.. this will be a great show, worthy of heading downtown on a monday nite

monday, october 27th
@ the entry (7th st entry / 1st ave)
story of the sea @ around 9pm
life and times @ around 10:00
magnetic morning headlines
$8 in advance or $10 @ the door
tickets here

george clinton p-funk @ first ave

GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC will be at first ave on tuesday, may 27 2008 .. if you’ve ever seen this show you know it’s crazy-fun – def worth $25 for the evening + the drink specials on tuesdays are good, so you won’t need a ton of pocket cash.. but i highly recommend taking a cab (beyond the whole $3000 Dwi thing, parking won’t be fun)

show details here

quick aside: rumor is first ave is (finally) getting an rss feed for the calendar next month, if you were missing one

sly & the family stone @ first avenue

why wouldn’t you want to go to this show?

$65 might be a bit steep for some folks but, seriously how often to you get a chance to see a show like this?

. . . . . . . .edit (04.28.08). . . . . . . .
this show us canceled – due to sly’s *ahem* exhaustion problem.. too bad :(
