Hey y'all. As I sit in this banal class learning about Gestalt theory I figured that it would be a good time for a blog post seeing as there are some fun things coming up.
Wed. Night the Third: Neil Hamburger at the Pilot Light
Hamburger is insane comedian who will shock and awe with his comedic timing and off color humor. It is at 10 pm and $10. I will most likely be there laughing.
Thursday Night the Fourth: The Royal Bangs and The Whigs at the Bijou
I have blogged a few times about the Bangs. If you have not seen them GO TO THIS SHOW. It will blow you away. They kick serious ass. They are leaving for europe in the next couple of days so go to the show because they won't be back for a while. They are also working on a new ep with which to shop around for a new label so new music hopefully. The other band that is playing is The Whigs. I remember when will mooney let me borrow Give 'Em All A Big Fat Lip. It blew my mind. Then seeing them live twice at the world grotto (RIP) was amazing. Their last album Mission Control was another great album. They have a new one coming out in early march so it looks like we may here some new stuff there as well. It is at The Bijou at 8pm and $16.50 at the door. I will be at this one with whoever wants to come with me.
Friday Night The Fifth: First Friday
As some of you may know, the first friday of every month is a fun night because all of the art galleries downtown are open and have FREE wine. The wine is a way to get you there. The best part is to be able to see all of the great visual art that is taking place in knoxville. There are also shows that night. You should go. It is a good time, and free wine.
Saturday Night the Thirteenth: Slick at The Pilot Light
This is BJ Barbee. He kicks some serious ass. I met him a couple of nights over christmas break and had a great time because, come on, just look at him. He is the best. He is also the lead singer of a band called slick. They are fierce 70's cock rock with some new flair. It is going to be wild. I can't wait. I am going to leave the link to their music so that you can see if you are man enough to join. It is at the Pilot Light at 10pm and is $5
Sunday Night the Twenty Eighth: Akron Family at The Pilot Light
Akron Family is a great band that came out with one of my favorite albums of last year Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free. They are playing at the pilot light on the last night of the month. What better way to start our last week of school before spring break than at the pilot light? It is at the Pilot Light at 10pm and is $10.
