Late Night Pick: Vampire Weekend

Our Sandy induced hiatus is over. Hope everyone is OK. We got lucky here in Richmond, with nothing more to contend with than a house full of rambunctious kids who couldn't play outside.

Tonight, watch indie darlings Vampire Weekend (how appropriate for Halloween!) on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC at midnight. Jimmy is doing these episodes in Brooklyn. He picked a hell of a week to be on the East Coast. Also on the show, will be Jimmy's late night counterpart, David Letterman.

Drive-By Truckers, A Place to Bury Strangers, Hospitality, Man Overboard, STS9

Doors open at 7, show starts at 8 both nights with J Roddy Walston and the Business opening. Tix are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. I've waxed poetic about DBT a million times now. All I can say is that if you are ready for a kick-ass rock n' roll show, get yourself to The National this weekend. I'll be there for the Saturday night blowout. (BTW, if you like the artwork above, that's done by Richmonder Wes Freed, who does all of the artwork for DBT going back for over a decade.) Here's DBT doing their fantastic song about growing up loving rock music, "Let There Be Rock" (some language NSFW). Three guitar rock n' roll glory at it's best.:

Tix are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. APTBS just got back from touring Russia so be sure to ask them about that. Here's their song "You Are the One":

If you are in the mood for some Halloween holiday music, check out Black Sabbath cover band, Brown Sabbath, at Republic on Saturday night. No info on the Republic site or Brown Sabbath's Facebook page about when this will start, but figure around 10 and figure a few dollars cover charge, at most. Here's the band playing "Wicked World" at The National a few years back:

Indie-pop band Hospitality will be at Strange Matter Sunday. Doors open at 6 for this all ages show and the music starts at 7 with openers Herro Sugar, The Garbers and Teen.

Late Night Pick: The Lumineers, Michael Franti webcast

Still tired from the excellent (as always) Bruce Springsteen concert last night. The crowd at JPJ Arena was definitely the best of any show, Bruce or otherwise, that I have seen at that arena. My favorite part of the show was the "rarities" block in the middle of "Seaside Bar Song", "Give the Girl a Kiss" (which Bruce taught the horn section on the fly), and  a powerful version of "Lost in the Flood", which I was able to cross of my Bruce bucket list. The other highlights were strong versions of "Backstreets" (the song that got me into Bruce those many years ago) and the encore opener of "Jungleland", which Bruce just nailed vocally. For the full setlist and the review from Backstreets go HERE.

Tonight at 9, Michael Franti is doing a webcast on the Green Mountain Coffee Facebook site HERE. Not sure if it will just be him solo or if Spearhead will be with him, but should be good either way.

Tonight's late night pick is Americana band, The Lumineers, on the Late Show with David Letterman. The Lumineers will be opening up for Dave Matthews Band at their shows at JPJ Arena in C'ville on 12/14 & 15. Tix for those shows are going on sale Friday at 10 AM. Bill O'Reilly will also be on so Dave should have fun sparring with him. Snooki will also be on the show, making for one weird show. Dave is on at 11:35 PM on CBS.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Here's Bruce and the band doing "Death to My Hometown" from their latest album, "Wrecking Ball":

Trey Anastasio, guitarist from Phish, will be at The National tonight. Tix are $39.50. Doors open at 7, show starts at 8. No opener as Trey and his band will do two sets. Trey is out supporting his new solo album, "Traveler". Here's the band peforming "Corona" a few nights ago in Chicago:

Timout said "“Fast-riser Miguel is a big-time style sampler whose music, part Latin-tinged hip-hop and part classic soul, is poised to make some waves”. His new song "Do You..."

The Ataris, Dan Deacon rescheduled, Waka Flocka Flame rescheduled

A special Tuesday edition of the blog that was going to highlight some shows on Wednesday but instead is mostly about shows that were going to take place Wednesday that were rescheduled.

It's $12 to get in and this is an all ages show. If you are an Ataris fan, don't miss the show because these are the only US tour dates of the year. Here's The Ataris performing "In This Diary":
