Maybe you’ve heard of Theresa Andersson. Maybe you haven’t and you’ve never been on YouTube. Either way, she is taking her one-woman gig on the road. With support from Detroit’s JSB Squad and Big Mess, Andersson will be performing on March 12th at the Pike Room at 7pm. It’s presented by 93.9 THE RIVER, and JSB swears there will be free giveaways of some sort.
It’s the return of Telegraph (ex-Suicide Machines, Derek Grant of Alkaline Trio)! Their demise in 2001 left a lot to be desired, but thanks to the booking prowess at Small’s, they are back. Call it cosmic. We call it ska. March 13th with Hellmouth, the show is $10 in advance. Chances are, it will be sold out by the time you get there, kids! Doors at 8pm.
A free show at the Magic Stick/Garden Bowl with Troy Gregory, the Readies, Magic Shop, and DRINK SPECIALS?! No shit. Bands to play upstairs and on the bowling alley to celebrate 25 years of Rock N’ Bowl at the Garden Bowl (bowling plus rock n’ roll, get it?). Free things are good. You have no excuse NOT to go (DRINK SPECIALS! At the Magic Stick!). March 14th. Doors at 8pm.
Have you seen the new bassist for New Grenada yet? That guy is fucking nuts onstage. Check out his antics, and Beard of Bees at Small’s on the 14th. There may or may not be some moderate head bopping going on in the crowd. Feel free to join in. $6 cover. Doors at 8pm
The Darts have released their newest full-length, Wake Up, Be Jealous, on Attraction Records and are hitting the mitten state hard, stopping by PJ’s Lager House March 21st with Prussia and Big Mess. Led by singer/spazz/guitarist Chris Minarik, this Lansing trio infuses what they deem as “indie pop,” in to garage rock with seemingly little effort.
