Scott H Biram, Flogging Mollys, Southern Belles, Jackass Flats

The Southern Belles and their funkified Americana groove continue their monthly First Friday residency at The Camel on Friday. It's $7 to get in, doors open at 8:30, show starts at 9:30 with Jackass Flats and a set of all acoustic bluegrass. The bands will be getting together for a set of their favorite Gram Parsons tunes, which should be a treat. Here's Southern Belles at The Camel back in September doing "All Night":



Monday night, gutbucket hardass bluesman, Scott H Biram will be at The Camel. Tix are $12, doors open at  8, show starts at 9 with openers Black Eyed Vermilion and Whiskey Dick. Here's a short interview with Scott and then he performs at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis:



Celtic punkers (from LA) Flogging Molly will be at The National on Wednesday night. Tix are $26 in advance, $29 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:30 with openers Skinny Lister and Dave Hause. Flogging Molly has been compared to The Pogues, Black 47, Dropkick Murphys, and are influenced by bands as diverse as Johnny Cash, Motorhead, Social Distortion, The Chieftains, The Clash, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Here's Flogging Molly singing "Drunken Lullabies", my favorite kind:



The 7th best video of 2012 according to Paste Magazine is this one from The David Wax Museum called "Harder Before It Get Easier" in which the duo gets all crazy with the face and body paint.
