This is one of those weeks where I could use three Bills. One to go to shows at the Grog, one to head to the Beachland, and a third to do my day job for me.
I still haven’t decided where I’m rocking it tomorrow. At The Beachland Ballroom, The Detroit Cobras are headlining a show with The Living Stereo, and we all know how I feel about The Detroit Cobras. While on the same night, Machine Go Boom are hosting a CD Release show at 10 PM at The Grog Shop. The strength of the latest disc, Music For Parents, is enough to get me out to The Grog, and then consider that two of Northeast, Ohio’s finest — Houseguest and Coffinberry are handling the opening duties, and that makes for one incredible three band bill.
Sunday night, Calla are at the Grog Shop for a show for the non-christians and christians who have had enough of their folks on Easter.
Tuesday at the Beachland Tavern, Pere Ubu founder, and Cleveland rock legend, David Thomas takes the stage with his avant garde, post rock project David Thomas and The Two Pale Boys.
Wednesday night and Thursday morning, is when the three Bills would really come in handy. Low, Loney, Dear and Brian Straw are at the Grog Shop, while there’s some great Rock ‘N’ Roll at The Beachland Ballroom with Lucero, Catfish Haven, and American Princes.
