Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for May 12th

Hello Dear Readers,

I was away from the computer most of yesterday? What did I miss? Did anyone go to any Monday night shows? All's I know is that I hate it when there is a computer guy at work fixing my computer instead of letting me use it. Anyways, here are someshows I think look pretty promising.

Tuesday, May 12th

I want to see every show I am about to list. It frustrates me to no end that I cannot possibly see them all. Really.

  • Backspace is having a show with The Ocean Floor, Boomsnake (San Diego), Themes and Snuffaluffagus. I have heard so much good stuff about the Ocean Floor and have made several plans to go and see him all of whcih have fallen through. I share a practice space with Themes and yet have still yet to hear them play. It is stupid. Boomsnake lived in Portland for like five minutes. During that time they left some CDs at Tender Loving Empire. I listened to it and then bought. Then I listened some more. A lot more because I think it is great. Looks like they are going on a baby tour of the NW with Themes. I know not of this Snufalufagus, but they will be playing some dates with Boomsnake in California. So it looks like these bands are friends and shows with friends are always the best. The ALL AGES show is $6 and starts at 8:30 PM.
  • Speaking of friends, Mississippi Pizza is having Annie Bethancourt and friends play a show tonight. Annie has an incredible voice and incredible songs to back it up. She is a sometimes Portland resident and this is her welcome back show. It is also her birthday so it should be a lot of fun. There will be a suggested $5 donation and start at 8 PM.
  • Valentine's is having Alan Singley, Quiet Countries and Gavin Castleton. Alan Singley is pretty sweet. I mean if you like sunny pop music (I do). And Gavin Castleton is so awesome. Listen to his song "Coffeelocks". This show is FREE and starts at 9 PM.
  • Plan B is having a show with Sourvein (North Carolina), Nanda Devi, Feedling and Tenspeed Warlock. This is a Doom show. If you like Doom as a genre I highly suggest that you go, if you do not like Doom. Go to one of the sissy pop shows I listed. It will start at 8 PM.

If you see me say "Hi".


Gavin Castleton for FREE tonight.
