This Week In Austin: The Weekday Edition

It just never ends. Most towns have the good shows reserved for Thursday through Sunday. Not Austin! Everyday of the week has something worth while, so get out there and check 'em out!

Jenny Lewis

Monday is slow, as it should be, so check out Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins at Stubb's for a laid back show featuring great harmonies and jangly guitar pop. Things pick up a bit on Tuesday as The Decemberists invade Stubb's from the Northwest supporting their great new album. If instrumental walls of sound is your thing, head to Mohawk for highly rated (check here for best instrumentals of 2005) Caspian, This Will Destroy You, and Austin's own My Education. For your woman with guitar folk pop, Beerland is hosting Dana Falconberry.

The Decemberists

Wednesday, the weekend is close and the shows keep coming. Locals Go Nova plays another show, this time with Success On Saturday at Red 7 on Sixth. Down South Congress at Trophys, Baltimore band The Frauds takes the stage. And Joseph Arthur is doing a free in-store at Waterloo Records before his show later that night at The Parish.

Pete Yorn

A big Thursday has Pete Yorn at La Zona Rosa and Jamie Lidell at The Parish. Also on Thursday, Trophys has four bands featuring XrayOK from LA, and locals Crash Gallery, Xcella, and The Boxing Lesson. Emo's has an early show featuring Say Anything, Mewithoutyou, Piebald, and Brazil. The late show is where I will be at, as Illinois based The Beauty Shop plays with The Shells and my favorite Austin bands, The Drawing Board and Just Guns. Come on out and party with me!
