I was hoping to check out Pains of Being Pure at Heart this evening, but I'm afraid I'll be out of town. Guess I'll have to read about it in The Spin like everybody else. Shucks. Here's Saturday night:
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart w/Zaza, Mother Father & Bows and Arrows at The End. Check out Andrew Clayman's story to see if The P of BPAH are into incest, as the lyrics of their song "This Love Is Fucking Right!" indicate.
Paper Route w/Mikky Ekko & Brian Lee and His Orchestra at Exit/In. Paper Route's radio-ready rock is "strangely romantic and even admirable." According to Saby Reyes-Kulkarni, anyway. They're also playing an in-store at Grimey's at 4 p.m.
Gunslinger w/Jenny Wood, The Aeronauts, Odist & Betty Roulette Burlesque at The 5 Spot. Betty Roulette Burlesque is definitely not a band. It is in fact burlesque. I checked.
Scott Miller and the Commonwealth w/Jacob Jones and the Shelby Street Revival at Mercy Lounge.
M[L]U w/Waters, Martin, Woodwind and Fire, Bon Tusciani & Skingraft at Little Hamilton. I have never heard of any of these bands, but apparently that's because they're from all over the damn place. Oh, and it's also some guy named Sean's 21st birthday.
That's everything that caught my eye, but I'm sure you fine children will be able to turn up some fun one way or another.
