If you go out to see live music on Mondays or Tuesdays, chances are you’re such a committed concertgoer that you don’t need my help deciding what to see. I’m writing for the people who want to start taking in live music at every conceivable opportunity, I guess. Hell, it’s almost always cheaper than therapy, and I’m pretty sure it’s at least as effective. (No, I’m not a Scientologist. I just do what works for me. Your mileage may vary.)
After the jump I’ll be running through the Reader’s Soundboard recommendations for the next couple days, but I also want to underline a show nobody managed to write up: Doomsday Student, Tinsel Teeth, Oozing Wound, and Spanyurd at the Empty Bottle for free on Monday. Doomsday Student consists of three-quarters of the late great Arab on Radar—front man Eric Paul, guitarist Stephen Mattos, and drummer Craig Kureck—plus guitarist Paul Vieira, who plays with Paul and Kureck in the Chinese Stars. You may also recall some discussion of Oozing Wound and Spanyurd in these very pages.
