Thursday Night Shows

Bowerbirds are playing the Mohawk Thursday night, with local opener, Martin Crane. All I know about Martin Crane is that there is some affiliation with the band Brazos. I also know that Martin Crane was also Frasier's dad. Bowerbirds have been making ripples in the indie-blog world but I don't think the big buzz for them has started just yet. I've heard them on Sirius XM radio and I really enjoy it, definatly has potential to appeal to a larger audience. So I'm going to officially endorse them as Bloggy-approved.

I also, want to mention a show that's going on at Beerland Thu night. My pals in When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth are about to go on a west coast tour so I think you should check out their live show before they pile into a van. Apologies for the video re-post but it's all/the best video I could find featuring the Dinos.

If you do head to Beerland tomorrow you'll also have the chance to catch Daniel Francis Doyle. I think that's one of those names that sounds more famous than it actually is. That's a tip for you, dear reader, use three names and earn more respect and/or become infamous instead of famous. :-/

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the touring support act for Bowerbirds at the Mohawk will be Megafaun. They're based in the Raleigh-Durham, NC scene and they play really nice roots-style music with Banjo and everything! Think J. Tillman/Fleet Foxes/Bowerbirds. :-)

Megafaun is also very Bloggy-approved. In fact I am heading to End of an Ear right now to pick up their album, Gather, Form & Fly. I really like what I've heard so far. I don't really like the artwork for the new album though, just sayin'.
