...well, indirectly....

...in another thread...

One Night Only! "Four Bands You're Not Likely to See Play Together Every Weekend!"
Thurs. May 27th, 9:30 pm - Oldfields on High - $5.00

Braille Drivers (Morgantown WVA) - Big guitars and big hooks.
Red Dahlia (Columbus/Athens) - Keyboards and glasses; the thinking fan's rock band.
The Emergency (Morgantown WVA) - See this band. Seriously. They've channeled Oasis, GBV and The Beatles through the no-nonsense power-trio blender. Collectively, our new favorite band.
The Patsys (Summit St.) - What did we finally decide about playing last? Are we headlining or are we fucked? Stick around and find out.

Really? Tell me more. They're the one band on the bill I'm least familiar with. I know they put out a CD a while back that was fairly well received and I've heard a few Husker Du comparisons, but beyond that...

Most of you* missed out on the last Bourbon Street Bash (to be fair, the Means were playing Red 16) but this show is tailor-made for the donewaiting crowd.
9:30pm?!? It's practically a matinee!
Just think, you can catch DW faves Red Dahlia and soon-to-be DW faves the Emergency** and still be home in time for Night Line!


*Stephen Slaybaugh, I'm looking in your direction...

The Patsys need to put that quote in their press kit.

yeah, that record is one of those "best kept secret" cds for me. all the songs are killer, hooky as hell, and all over the map in terms of mood. they don't really remind me of husker du though... candy apple grey, maybe a little bit. just good sonic noise pop

Ditto for me and the Emergency's CD. Very few regular DW-ers saw them at Bourbon Street earlier this year so you'll just have to trust us on this one but they're as good an example of smart power pop as you'll see/hear all year.

It's not just us! Kevin Elliot has apparently been bitten by The Emergency bug as well. Check today's Alive for details.

Yes. The Emergency were fantastic. I picked up a disc. After hearing their live set I shall abruptly write: RIYL Ted Leo, The Dismemberment Plan and The Monkees.

I enjoyed the Patsy's too. They made me want to drink Blatz out of a little glass, pony bottle. RE: very classic, blue collar, hooky ruh-ock. I heard the riff from Living Loving Maid in the first song.

I missed the Braille Drivers and Red Dahlia because I was at Midgard watching the Stepfords. Fucking eh, that is a great little, all ages hut. I wish that I would have made it up there a few more times before the owner decided to stop having shows (apparently somewhat due to some bullshit the underage regulars were pulling on nearby businesses, etc). Midgard is/was cool. Me rikey.

Thanks to everyone who stuck it out last night. Four bands on a Thursday night was a pretty tall order.

Never have so many rocked so hard for so few.
