Jane's Addiction, Lemonheads, Lotus, Mary Gauthier, Susan Greenbaum, Cosmic Charlie

Friday night, I'll be at Jane's Addiction at The National and hopefully you'll be too.  If you didn't get tickets within the first hour they went on sale, well, you better know someone, because they is sold out.  Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8:30 with opener Black Box Revelation.  Here's Jane's doing perhaps their greatest song, "Three Days":




To keep the 90's Lollapalooza vibe going, The Lemonheads will be at The Canal Club on Friday night. It's $17 to get in.  Doors open at 7:30 and the show kicks off with The Vacant Stairs and The Shining Twins.  Here's The Lemonheads biggest hit, "Into Your Arms" (disregard the brief glimpse of Alison Moyet in the beginning):


Saturday, jam band Lotus will be at The National. Tix are $22 in advance, $25 at the door. Doors open at 8, show starts at 9 with opener The Malah. Here's a glimpse of Lotus' sold out show on February 4 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver:



If you like the jam bands but of the more traditional type, check out Grateful Dead cover band Cosmic Charlie at The Canal Club. Tix are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Doors open at 8:30 and it doesn't look like there is an opener.  Here's a mini-documentary on the band:



Also Saturday, the Susan Greenbaum Band will be at Ashland Coffee & Tea. Tix are $10 at the door. Show starts at 8 with no opener.  Here's Susan performing "Here No More" just about a year ago at Ashland Coffee & Tea:



Wednesday night at Ashland Coffee & Tea, you'll find singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier. Tix are $15 in advance, $20 day of show and the show starts at 8 with no opener. Her latest CD, "The Foundling" had much acclaim including being named the third best album of 2011 by the LA Times. Here's Mary performing "Wheel Inside the Wheel" with Tania Elizabeth on violin on 3/2 in Dallas:



If you're interested in the 10 most offensive songs in history, well Flavorwire put together a list HERE. This may not be safe for work depending on who looks over your shoulder and whether you choose to actually play any of these songs and, if so, how loud. These songs will be good if you are ready for everyone to get out of your house this weekend when the party is over.

I'll see you at Jane's Addiction, if you can get in.  Have a great weekend!
