August 7, 2009

Here's a show worth catching

beach houseHow's this for a hot ticket: Indie favorites Beach House (pictured) and Celebration will perform an outdoor show near the Metro Gallery  (1700 N. Charles St.) tonight.

The music starts at 10 p.m. with a set from Beach House. Then the members of Beach House and Celebration will collaborate on some tunes together. Then Celebration takes the stage.

Metro Gallery owner Sarah Williams stresses that this is not a show to miss.

"We're making this crazy projection pyramid," she said. "It's going to look cool. We have some tricks up our sleeves."

The show will be held in the parking lot, where Williams through Rufustival earlier this year. It's an all ages concert.

why does every indie artist look like they fell out of a bum's ass?

i was lightheartedly joking of course. i have much respect for the indies out there.

bill, it's funny, right now i'm watching this great clip of the making of "won't get fooled again" by the who -- take a look at vintage pete townshend in the vid

welp, that's what i'm doin tonight

"...where Williams through Rufustival earlier this year."
"Threw", please. Good God, man.

yes Sam, the "free Spirits you all like to call "Indies" now are pretty much what we called "hippies" back in the 60's and 70's
(by today's definition, almost ALL the music in that time period could be considered "Indie" )
(sigh) the more things "change" the more they remain the same.... (angry or mellow young people making angry or mellow rock type music all in the name of "being different")
