Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for Monday, December 14th

Hello Dear Readers,

I was very close to going out. But then I went holiday shopping. I didn't buy anything but it still took it out of me. Plus I had to get some groceries which further exhausted me. And I knew that there is a show I wanted to see today:

Monday, December 14th

Berbati's is having Blue Horns play. Or that was the original plan. But then one of the guys in the band sliced a tendon rendering the band useless. Now Bohdi and The Woolen Men play. This is a pretty good consolation prize. Not only are the bands good, but there are two of them. Bodhi play rock music that touches on several genres (pop, garage, new wave, whatever) but ends up just sounding like Bodhi. There is plenty guitar and a boat load of keyboard hooks (I could have made some sort of fishing joke, but I respect you guys too much). Plus I have not seen them since my friend Padraic Finbar Haggerty-Hammond joined the group on keyboard and guitar. The Woolen Men are a band that I have been meaning to see for several months. They too are a rock band. Some bands I am reminded of are a mid 90's Sloan or Velvet Underground. I realize this may not narrow their sound down at all, but if you like either of those bands, maybe you will like this one too. The show is FREE and starts at 10 PM.

If you see me at this show please say, "Hi". Maybe you will like what will follow*.


*I make no promises as to what may follow.

Bodhi will be rocking tonight because they all of their tendons intact.

Way to make me feel cheated out of a good bad fishing joke. Perhaps other readers desire you to respect their comedy veganism, but I love cheesy wordplay.
