Lots of good local bands not called Kings of Leon this weekend. Tonight you must choose between two good local shows, or do your best show-hopping. At The End, you've got the last '05 Nashville appearance by Forget Cassettes
before they head into the studio. Hear, here:Forget Cassettes - "Ms. Rhythm and Blues"
At The Basement
you've got the CD giveaway show featuring The Alcohol Stuntband
, The Clutters
and Falls City Angels
. Not sure how many CDs they're giving away, or what you have to do to get one, but here's a song:The Alcohol Stuntband - "Snakeskin Snake"
As for Saturday night, Songs: Illinois has a few words
about The Strugglers
(okay, so they're regional -- two thirds of the bill is local). If my pick
did not convince you to attend, maybe this will:The Strugglers - "The Rejection Letter"
Also at The Basement
on Saturday will be Cortney Tidwell
. Here's one of Ms. Tidwell's songs, thanks to Sissy Bragg
:Cortney Tidwell - "Hard to Tell"
Rounding out the bill is How I Became The Bomb
