Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks

Hello Dear Readers,

I picked up my friend from the airport and as a payment, he bought me a Papa Johns Pizza. Since I had not eaten besides several handfuls of goldfish (not really a meal), I destroyed the pizza and then got "pizza drunk". That meant that shows were out of the question. I must be more careful in the future. Anyways, here are the shows that look good"

Wednesday, January 13th

Mississippi Studios is having a show with Jesse Skyes and Kele Goodwin. Jesse Sykes and The Sweet Hereafter, her band, make folk rock that is distinct mostly due to her soft and raspy voice. The weird thing about her is that she often collaborates with heavy bands like SUNNO))) and BORIS. Weird. Kele Goodwin makes very pretty folk music. The obvious touching stone for getting an idea of what he Kele sounds like is Nick Drake. The show is $12 and starts at 9 PM

Ella Street Social Club is having The Woolen Men, Pill Wonder (Seattle), and White Fang play a show. Woolen Men are a good new band you should know about. They play rock and roll like the Velvet Underground would play rock and roll if they grew up listening to 90's lo-fi rock. If that makes sense. Young Prisms is a band that sounds like some kids taking drugs and playing guitars in attempts to play pop music. A lot of these bands kinda play chilled out reverby drenched pop music. I mean not Woolen Men, and especially not White Fang. White Fang plays party art punk. It is fun and catchy and I highly suggest you see them at least once in your life. The show is $5 and starts at 9 PM.

Rotture is having a show with Kidcrash, Girlfriends, Carrion Spring, and Total Bros. Di you know about how all the kids are playing mathy pop music? If you did not you should check out all of these bands. You will not regret it. Unless of course you can't handle progressive music. The show is $5 and starts at 9 PM.

If you see me at these shows please say, "Hi".


Kidcrash play tonight at Rotture. Crazy.
