the Current & The Walker Art Center present Rock the Garden 2009 this Saturday.. gates open 3pm – 11pm
of course, the show is sold out – but for those who have tickets, here’s the schedule:
4:30 – Solid Gold
5:45 – Yeasayer
7:00 – Calexico
8:30 – The Decemberists (pictured here)
parking will suck (for me, no matter what, since i live right behind the walker :( so walk or bike it (they’re bringing in 500 bike racks)
solid gold is playing a free show @ the uptown bar tonight..
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)
making lists.. crossing things off lists.. this is a huge part of my life.
for those who don’t know, i recently joined the millions of unemployed folks in this country. i’m trying not to take it too personally. i know i did a great job and that i was appreciated there – the economics simply dictated massive layoffs at tc. honestly, i feel good that i survived the 2008 cuts and made it to the finals. damn. i knew i should have asked for less money when they offered me the position ;)
but what’s past is past and i’ll land on my feet as always. it only means that my lists of things to-do are growing even longer than normal.. that said, here are some things that you should be aware of this week:
solid gold is playing @ the uptown bar this wednesday (jan 28th) – prob $5-8 dollars @ the door and well worth it..
Cliche is having a fashion show @ old arizona this thursday (jan 29) from 8pm – 10pm, featuring local designers: Amanda Christine Designs, kjurek couture, Ivan Idland, Martiza Ramirez/Anthem Heart, Karmadandi, Niki English, Jenny Carle, Arwyn Birch, Peloria, Renate Adjei, Red Shoe Clothing Co., Emily Weich, Carmichael Claith.. Tickets are $8.00 (very limited space so tickets needs to be purchased in advance!) and you can get them at the store (2403 Lyndale Avenue s).
steve tenebrini of squad19 has some super cool screen prints available that feature artwork from his daughter & glow-in-the-dark eyes! only $50 bucks (if i were still employed I would snatch the one with gene simmons up immediately)..
rift magazine needs your attention for a minute… this is my favorite local mag and i hope that everyone will cough up a few bucks so we can see another issue in print. sure, the online version is great, but it’s nice to have something you can actually touch. i feel so “oldschool” when i actually hold a paper anymore.. go there and make a donation to the worthy cause – it’ll make you feel good. really.
more coming soon.. no really – i’m back.
