Wacky Weather We're Having Lately
The Weathervanes opened for the Chinese sensation Shanren the other night at IOTA which turned out to be a study in contrast between a band from half way around the world and a band steeped in Americana from good ole D.C. If you missed this remarkable show, you can still check out The Weathervanes this Friday night as Black Cat showcases a night full of local talent. Seth Brown, drummer for The Weathervanes, gives us the low down:
"Brightest Young Things have listed this show as "a show you should blow your money on," and that's meaningful considering these harsh economic times. ironically, we're neither bright nor are we considerably young, but we'll take it. We'll be joined by up-and-coming Indie Folkers Orchard Wall, legendary band- The Reserves (who I'll also be playing drums with that night), and Whiskey Parade the shiny and new project spawned from two great bands, Scythian and No Second Troy."
Three bands only $10. That's still only $3 and change per band. 9 p.m.
