Wednesday February 17th - Schubas - Headliner: Phantogram - Opener: Junk Culture - 9pm - $8 in advance, $10 at the door
We have been loving Phantogram since we first heard their fantastic EP, and the debut LP, Eyelid Movies, only added to how great we think this NY electro-pop duo is. Trust us, they will not be playing venues as small as Schubas much longer, if at all. Just wait till they are all over trendy shows like Gossip Girl. Shows like this are what inspired what we do here.
Friday, February 19th - Ballydoyle Pub - Headliner: Red Wanting Blue - 9pm - $?
Nate was all about this Ohio roots rock band on Podcast 3 and now is your chance to catch them at a new suburban venue in Bloomingdale. We can't quite find a ticket or cover price, but we can't imagine it not being worth the price of admission - whatever that may be.
Friday, February 19th - Subterranean - Headliner: Lucky Boys Confusion - Opener: The Action Blast - 9pm - $15
With all the excitement over AM Taxi lately, it is easy for us to all but forget how good Lucky Boys Confusion is. Do not make that mistake. If AM Taxi takes off like we expect them to, shows like this will only become rarer. If you are in the city this Friday, the decision between LBC and RWB is an easy one.
