The Mid-Week in the Mid-Atlantic

It must be spring. There are actually shows on Wednesdays. Here are a few to attend:

Regional favorites Jukebox the Ghost are growing quite a following in their new home base. Check them out at the North Star on Wednesday. Tally Hall and The Republic Tigers are on tour as well and joining Jukebox on stage. Afterwards, JTG heads north to Beantown, while all of you in DC get the other two at DC9 on Thursday.

4/16: Philly @ North Star
4/17: DC @ DC9 (Tally Hall/The Republic Tigers only)

Jukebox The Ghost - Victoria
Tally Hall - Spring and a Storm (via The Bomb Shelter)
The Republic Tigers - Buildings and Mountains

Another band traveling the 95 corridor is Dead Meadow. Catch them in DC on Wednesday, follow the van and see them again in Philly on Thursday

4/16: DC @ Black Cat
4/17: Philly @ Johnny Brendas

Dead Meadow - What Needs Must Be

Brooklyn based The Epochs invade Philly Wednesday night with two hometown bands sharing the stage, Neighbors On The Moon and Lightning Bug. I have seen Neighbors, and it is a highly entertaining show. Give the locals some love.

4/16: Philly @ The Khyber

The Epochs - Opposite Sides
Neighbors on the Moon - Monsters
Lightning Bug - Infinity Today

Doing the hometown CD release thing (album came out 4/8) is Public Record. They are at Johnny Brendas with ravens:and:vultures. Should be a great show.

4/16: Philly @ Johnny Brendas

Public Record - Comfortability
ravens:and:vultures - Willow

And now for something a little bit loud. In an odd place to play, New York's loudest band, A Place to Bury Strangers is in Central PA at Messiah College. Hope those Christian kiddos know what they are getting in to. This also happens to be the band's last US show for quite some time, as they are about to head to Europe.

4/16: Grantham PA @ Messiah College

A Place To Bury Strangers - I Know I'll See You
