Young Widows announce Ear X-Tacy instore

Ear X-Tacy is having Young Widows in to play one of their “Ear X-Tacy After Dark” shows. I believe it’s free, but I wouldn’t swear to it. The band are also playing Headliners on April 28.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion coming to Lex 4/28

I saw the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion last year at Pitchfork and loved every minute of it. Later this month I’ll get the chance to do the same again a little closer to home.

Kool Keith coming to Lexington this Tuesday

The Kool Keith show at Cosmic Charlies was somewhat last minute, but really that’s half the fun. Two weeks ago I had no idea that Kool Keith might be in the area, but soon we’ll be sharing the same air. Mark your calendars and get excited.

Idiot Glee, The Butchers + Trailblazer to play Al’s 3/31

The Butchers are very patriotic apparently

MP3: Idiot Glee – Ain’t No Sunshine (Bill Withers)
MP3: The Butchers – You a Liah
MP3: Trailblazer – Mallard

Woo-hoo this is one sweet lineup. I hope I wind up perking up after work next Thursday so I can make it down to Al’s Bar to see three of Lexington’s finest. Idiot Glee and the Butchers I’ve seen and enjoyed, but this’ll be my first time seeing Trailblazer.

MP3: Matt Duncan – A Thousand Boys (demo)

Yesterday a new Matt Duncan fan asked if he ever plays around town. Boy, does he ever. Here’s Matt’s latest gig, a show this Saturday March 26 with Andy Mason. Go welcome him back from SXSW, buy him a drink and enjoy the show.
