Soft Company = tonight, whereas Le Weekend = tuesday

The Cave (the late show)
Tonight, Saturday, September 22, 2007 - $5
w/ Americans in France and Waumiss

Waumiss promise a like 10 minute set at the beginning, and it would be quite stupid of you to miss that, so get there on time, yo! On time means 10:45pm, and that means make it 10:15-10:30 and enjoy a drink first.

Americans in France remind me, in weird ways, of what V. Sirin would have been like if we had been fun.

Soft Company is sophisticated and rewards your ears if they've been good.

Le Weekend occasionally DBA Le Weekend (same spelling, but Le is mispronounced)
Duke Coffeehouse
Tuesday, September 25, 2007 - $7 ($4 for Duke students)
w/ Dirty Projectors and Ecstatic Sunshine

I will not even attempt cleverness: Dirty Projectors is a band you need to experience and take a position on. It's avant catchy, it's complex and simple, and very accomplished (sometimes in ways that aren't obvious on the surface). It won't be for everybody but it should be. I have been delving into their catalog and it is a very rewarding delve. I'm quite curious to see how they will translate this material live.

Ecstatic Piece are a guitar duo and they create amazing sounds, which isn't probably what you first expect from a guitar duo. They claim to be Bruce Springsteen and Greg Ginn; what more do I have to give you people?!?

So even though Le Weekend*, as you know, rules, I'm amazingly gratified to take part in this show. If I hear one complaint about it being a Tuesday, you're going to hear, in excruciating detail, what my every Wednesday is like.

*As seen above winning the Wettest Band in the World contest.
