Really, it’s ok to admit you listened to the Get Up Kids in the late ’90s and early ’00s, and it’s ok to admit you’ve secretly circled this date on your calendar. Plus, they’ve repeatedly apologized for spawning that whole emo thing in the press. Now, you can go to this show guilt free.
Saturday, October 24th: Drummer, Other Girls, Royal Bangs @ Beachland Ballroom. Unsparing Sea, Casual Encounters, Trouble Books @ Beachland Tavern — free admission to the Tavern with purchase of a ticket to the Ballroom show.
If you’ve been paying attention at all during 2009 you’re supremely stoked for Saturday night at the Beachland. In the Ballroom you have the Akron super group, Drummer, along with Audio Eagle label mates Other Girls and Royal Bangs. While in the Tavern, Unsparing Sea are hosting a cd release party for their latest, In the Diamond Caverns. Cleveland Bachelor published an interview with Unsparing Sea’s JR Bennett this morning. You can expect more from Unsparing Sea, right here, later in the week.
Sunday, October 25th: Leonard Cohen @ Allen Theatre.
