I’ll be at rehearsal tonight, but if I were free, I’d go to this. If you’re free, you should definitely consider checking out this show at Great Scott (Allston, MA).
9pm, 18+, $7
Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!
I’ve been a fan of Mighty Tiny’s creepy mask-wearing circus rock for quite some time, and I got the opportunity to play flute on a track for their upcoming album. (To see my other posts about Mighty Tiny, with photos!, go here.) I’ve never seen Ketman, but I’ve heard great things about them, and I’ve seen several of their members perform with various other awesome projects. I know nothing about Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!, but I have a special fondness for bands with uncomfortably long names, since I am in one myself. Based on a quick Google search, it appears that they perform with bandanna-covered faces. Between the masks and the bandannas, this show is sure to be Halloweenily creepy and wonderful.
Are you going to a show tonight?
Lots of shows tonight (2/12/11)! Here are a few on my radar:
- Naked On Roller Skates (EP Release!) with Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, The Lights Out, and Mellow Bravo at Great Scott (Allston, MA)
- UnValentine’s Day Org: Lach, Brian Carpenter & the Confessions, massmouth, Jaggery, Edrie of (Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys), Trabants at Lizard Lounge (Cambridge, MA)
- Streight Angular with Outsider Joe, Onslo, Every Other Country, and Hello Ninja at PA’s Lounge (Somerville, MA)
- Auto Orbit with Wobblesauce, Jalopy, and Party Bags at Copperfield’s (Boston, MA)
I’ll be going to the show at Great Scott to see my band-mates, Mike and Sophia, play in their other project, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling. I saw Mellow Bravo once, but this’ll be my first time seeing The Lights Out and Naked On Roller Skates.
Since I was the 100th person to RSVP on the Facebook event page, apparently I win a beer from Naked On Roller Skates’ lead singer Leesa and a ride home in The Lights Out’s band van. Sweet!
Are you attending a show tonight? Or performing in one? Will I see you at Great Scott?
