Now that the worst month of the year is dead and gone, we only have to endure the second worst month of all, a forgettable one at that. Don’t be fooled, though, shows abound and AP will be busy capturing what flickers of hope exist in stuffy basements and sold-out bars.
Tonight (3/4) AP will be headed to the Old South Church to be graced with the sounds of The Low Anthem's new album Smart Flesh. Peep the interview with band member Jocie Adams here. AP will also be in attendance at the Middle East Downstairs to experience both Brothers Past and The Indobox, thanks to a tip-off from The Brain Trust.
Tomorrow night (3/5) sees the return of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad to HOB, with The Green opening and Rebelution headlining. If your cabin fever’s got you itchin’ for some summer love, the HOB promises to be a warm, reggae respite. A few from AP will be there to witness some of our favorite frequenters. Although AP will not be in attendance, Rival Schools at Brighton Music Hall may be of similar therapeutic qualities for the Allston dregs like us.
Sunday night is highlighted by Say Hi at the Middle East Downstairs. The band is currently on a massive tour, spanning the vast red, white, and blue and even venturing into the cold unknown above. Don’t miss these guys cause they’re off to New York for a show on Monday.
This week has seen the announcement of exciting news from local underground (at one point or another) venue Wadzilla Mansion. Although many of us probably won’t be able to make it out to Zilla’s “BAustin” SXSW Showcase, it’s exciting to recognize and applaud the movement and ceaseless devotion to the arts. Check out the Facebook event page here. Allston Pudding, as always, continues to support and thank the DIY success as well as wish them luck with all of their endeavors.
