Odyssey (who we wrote about here) has two shows tonight. Two shows! Head on down to the Hop! for an early show at 5 pm alongside Shrieks of the Impaled, Wrath of Vesuvius and Mortal Remains, and a late show (at 8 pm) with the Brown Notes — who are releasing a new CD.
Hank III, grandbaby of the legendary Hank Williams and regular baby of Hank Williams II, has been described as simultaneously “hillbilly,” “honky tonk,” and “metalcore.” Whatever. It’s also just, you know, good. Hank III tends to be somewhat rowdy and sings lyrics that are not fit to print. Call him what you want, but basically he’s fun. And maybe a little scary. Head to the Knitting Factory at 8 pm. It's $18.
The arms of Six State Bender have been twisted into playing another reunion show, and we're sure it'll be packed to the gills. Check them out tomorrow with the Creeps and Whiskey Dick Mountain at 9 pm. A Club. $6. It may or not be 21 and over.
Downstairs at Mootsy's, catch the Pavement-y band Hermit Thrushers, alongside locals Mirror Mirror (see our story on them here) and the Camaros. 10 pm. $5. Gotta be 21.
On the lord's day, have a night of nice, clean fun with indie rockers the Plain White T's. They play the Knitting Factory with the Summer Set, the Downtown Fiction and Allison Park. 8 pm. $20.
Or you could spend the lord's day at a metal show! The best kind, too: a metal arena show! Hopefully there's tons of pyrotechnics and whatnot. See Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Bullet for my Valentine, Seether, Escape the Fate, Sevendust and whole bunch more at the Spokane Arena. And, oh my god, it goes all day: 2 pm - 11 pm! If you have a stomach afterward, I'll be surprised. $25-$65.
