Hey there, Solid State.
I'm sure you haven't read quite enough about Thursday night's "Bands of Burlington" Radiator/Big Heavy World benefit at Nectar's and Metronome yet. OK, I'm lying. You probably have. Still, I thought you might like to know what's happening and when. So to that end, here's the schedule of bands for tomorrow night's throwdown (all times are approximate, since there's really no way this thing will go off exactly as planned):
9:00: Cannon Fodder
10:30: Husbands AKA
11:30: In Memory of Pluto
12:30: The Vanderpolls
9:30: Lowell Thompson
10:15: The Aztext
11:00: Japhy Ryder
Local comedian Alex Nief will handle emcee duties on both floors and we'll also have giveaways from Burton Snowboards, Sugarbush and Crystal's Spa. Sick.
Additionally, I'll be appearing on Jim Lockridge's Radiator show, Rocket Shop, tonight at 8 p.m. to talk about the show and spin some tunes — including new stuff from In Memory of Pluto and Husbands AKA!
If you can't make the shindig in person, WRUV will be simulcasting from Metronome, and we'll have a podcast from both floors available. I should have more particulars about that (ie. where you can get it) after the show.
So that's what's good. Come on out and support some killer local music and a great local cause. Hope to see you there!
