Thursday In The Area

CMJ is going on strong, so that means plenty of shows heading towards NYC or on their way back. Either way, more for us in the IA region. Like always, Thursday has plenty to see.

Forget the British Invasion of the '60s. The 2000s are having a Swedish invasion. Tonight and tomorrow, you can catch three of the best singer-songwriters Sweden has to offer. Ane Brun and Tobias Froberg are joined by former native Theresa Andersson, now calling New Orleans home, at the Tin Angel in Philly Thursday. They then have a great small venue show at IOTA Friday.

New albums abound for Minus the Bear and Annuals. Taking their new material to a venue near you, they are with Sylvie at the TLA in Philly.

The Rosebuds just released a new album and The Oranges Band are gearing up for a release of their own. Catch them at the Black Cat.

Wilkes-Barre is not a hot bed for indie music, but An Albatross breaks out of the coal fields with a new release and a show with Yip Yip at Talking Head.

Delta Spirit is at Johnny Brenda's, while Michigan's The Hard Lessons go local with The City Veins at IOTA. Finally, at DC9 is New Englanders The Everyday Visuals, The Public Good and Gary B & The Notions.
