Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for Tuesday, December 15th

Hello Dear Readers,

Last night I saw that free show at Berbati's. I came directly from an AristeiA practice and missed the majority of The Woolen Men's set. Basically by the time I got a handle of what they were doing it was over. I was told that I missed out on the drummer's songs. They are one of those bands that has multiple songwriters. I guess I have to go see them again. Bodhi played a pretty solid set. I have not seen them in a long time. It was nice to see my friend Fin as an excellent addition to the band. He makes quite the multi-instrumentalist employing the use of guitar, keyboard, ring modulator, tambourine, and a floor tom. Over all, there was not as much weirdness of a Monday Night show that was thrown together last minute as there could have been. It was alright. By the by, I could only find one show that looked interesting to me today:

Tuesday, December 15th

The Burgerville at SE 12th and Hawthorne will be having a show with The Mean Jeans, TherapistS, The Cuntifiers (Tuscon), and Cowabunga Babes (Austin). Mean Jeans will be recording their set for an upcoming 7" cleverly entitled "Live @ Burgerville". I saw them recently and enjoyed their Ramones-esque punk rock. Did I mention it is in a freaking fast food joint? I would love to see the people that just happen in for a burger and then get blasted with punk rock. Yeah, I checked out the other bands and this is totally a punk rock show (that is not afraid of its pop side). Also it should be noted that two of the Cowabunga Babes are dudes, and that in addition to punk they have a wee bit of surf in them. I see surf music as the new thing. The Show is ALL AGES FREE and starts at 6 PM sharp.

If you see me at this show please say, "Hi". And give me some of your fries.


-Ben



Imagine this while you order your fancy burger at Burgerville. "Das Was Sup"
