The Whiny '90s Bash
Saturday, May 15, 2010
Birdy's 2131 E. 71st Street
317.254.8971 21+, doors 8:00, music 9:00
The Whiny '90s Bash will feature Pimlico, Peal, Jessica Benge and Matt Mays, Captain Hightop, No Alternative, Breakfast Club, Lines of Nazca and Maravich playing songs of that decade. If you ever wore flannel shirts in the summer, bought your little sister a Beanie Baby, saved up for an Atari game or worried about Y2K2 this is the show for you.
The '90s covered a lot of ground musically - from Baby Got Back to Better Man. It will be fun to see what music the bands choose to cover. Dig out your Nirvana tee shirt, dust off your Doc Martens and check out the show. It promises to be da bomb!
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
Sunday, May 23, 2010
The Vogue 6259 College Avenue
21+, doors 7:00, music 8:00, nonsmoking, $22 day of show
I pay attention when my hairdresser talks about music; Michael has introduced me to some great stuff. And years of great haircuts to boot. The latest show he's been excited about is Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings.
Sharon and the band are known for their live shows - a nine piece band of funk and fun. Sharon just released her fourth record I Learned the Hard Way last month. The album was recorded on an old Ampex eight-track tape machine for a warm sound that is reminiscent of the live shows.
This show is early and nonsmoking. Perfect for a school night.
Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
