The Weekender 12/22-12/23


Kind of a slow weekend, which isn't surprising considering Baby Jesus' birthday is right around the corner and we all probably have a lot more terrorist fighting (shopping) to do before the big day. However, there are a couple cool things going on that might be worth your time. Unfortunately, we don't have time to write much about them today, but you can hang:

FRIDAY

Sober and Select of The Party @ Passport Exhibit Gallery (3112 Swiss Ave 8pm): Select and Sober will be spinning at this in-store holiday party for P.E.G. starting at 8pm. Free alcohol and food will be available, along with a wide selection of hot chicks. Its a great shoe store too, and if you haven't been you might want to see what they have if you happen to be the sneaker wearing kind.

The Church of Light and Sound/Heart Rapers/Koji-Kondo (Rubber Gloves): I don't really know much about the bands playing this show to be honest, but the little pieces of lo-fi rock I heard on The Church of Light and Sound's myspace sounded interesting, as does the progressive, angular punk of Koji Kondo.

The Strange Boys/The Shapes/Dj Panda Flower (The Cavern): This is the Lollipop showcase, which are usually pretty fun. And if you haven't seen the Strange Boys with their new keyboard player, you might want to go hear what they sound like these days. Dj Panda Flower focuses on 60's stuff and has a great record collection from what I can tell.

SATURDAY

Happy Bullets/Ashburne Glen/Prayer for Animals/Cartright/The Naptime Shake/Tame...Tame and Quiet (Club Dada): This is Callithump's Christmas showcase, and I would highly recommend catching Tame Tame and Cartright live. Both worth the price of admission alone.

Naptime Shake canceled, so I can only assume the Callithump show'll start an hour later? Also, anybody gotten the new !!! album yet? Pretty fuckin' good.

Yeah, The Naptime Shake isn't able to play, due to sickness, so the show will start at 9pm, rather than 8pm. TT&Q may start a little early, just to get in a longer set. I'd suggest getting there around 8:30pm. Also, members of the Tah-Dahs will be DJing between sets. Shall be a fun night!

Here's the set times. Times are subject to change a bit with changeovers (quicker/slower), so I suggest getting their 1/2 hour before the band/s you want to see.

1 - The Happy Bullets
12 - Ashburne Glen
11 - Prayer for Animals
10 - Cartright
9 - Tame..Tame and Quiet
