The week, reviewed: Jan. 16 - 22: the return of Damian Bohager, free concerts, and 2011's first Midnight Sun Mixer
A short week meant a way too hectic week. But we survived. Meanwhile, a liquor board inspector was caught in a sticky situation after he admitted consulting for the club that might herald Damian Bohager's return. Sugarland was announced as Merriweather Post Pavilion's first headliner of the year. A little later in the week Katy Perry joined them. After much debate, the former Taps, and former Catherine's Pub, and already for sale Delia Foley's finally opened. Wonder how long it'll take before everyone stops calling it new Taps. Future Islands and Arbouretum announced a couple of free shows, on February 26 and February 13, respectively. Midnight Sun toured the Heavy Seas brewery for a print story on regional brewery tours. Dope Body performed at the Ottobar, and we had the pictures. Liz Phair's upcoming show was previewed. As was the one by Gainesville's very own Animaniacs, Less than Jake. And, after all that, the week thankfully culminated with beer and shots at the first Midnight Sun Mixer of the year, which, I also managed to survive none the worse for wear. Now all that's left is to pick the date for the next one.
