Jer Coons comes home - Burlington 4/8

On the road recently with Trevor Hall and John Oates (yes, Thee), Jer Coons is coming home to Vermont tonight, playing at Higher Ground in South Burlington.  Jer has been consistently touring over the last year, playing to full venues from Florida to Madison, WI.  He's picking up fans in every city he shows his shining face - and it's well-deserved. He's been working his ass off, and his show (and band) are tighter than ever.

Yeah, it's pop, but it's damn good.  No need for anyone to get embarrassed, Jer's music challenges fans of all ages and genres to just try and have a bad time.  Check out the video for his single, "Legs" here.  His last show here was sold out, so if you haven't yet - GET YO' TICKETS NOW!  It will be an early show, like most at higher Ground these days - doors open at 7 p.m.  Taylor Carson will open.

Musicians needed for fundraiser!

mw

It's A Gift (29A Union Square across from the Citizen's Bank)  is in threat of being shut down due to finances. The store sells artwork and crafts by adults with physical and mental disabilities. During the Somerville Open Studios May 1st and 2nd, It's A Gift will have silk-screening in the store. Community members may bring in clothing or buy vintage clothing or a t-shirt ($5 or less) to have an image by one of our artists printed on them for $10.

In the evenings is where they need musicians to volunteer their time and talent to saving the store. It's a Gift will be having a Save Our Store fundraiser concert as a Somerville Open Studios after party. Starting at 6:30pm on May 1st and 2nd musicians can play a 30-45 min. set each. As an extra incentive for musicians, they can make a silkscreen of a band image/logo so that the musicians can make t-shirts,etc. If the image is brought in at the Somerville Open Studios they can have it ready with in a couple weeks.

The Day's Weight at Northeastern 4/8

It must be tough to have an apostrophe in your band's name - but I guess that's how you weed out the articulate from the people who don't care.

I care, and you should. The Day's Weight will be playing with Delta Spirit and Movers and Shakers tomorrow night, Thursday, April 8th at Northeastern's afterHOURS club. The show starts around 7:30 p.m.

If The Day's Weight strikes a familiar chord, it's because they played to a sold out room at The Deli's Boston launch party last November.  Though Pat McDermott and Kyle Toomey grew up together playing music in the outskirts of Boston, the band officially hails from Burlington, VT. The two have gathered a strong assortment of musicians from LA to Berklee, and have basically brought together some serious sound.

Dark but refreshing, The Day's Weight bring the old west to Indie rock.  McDermott's voice defines the band's persona - a voice steeped in sexuality and somehow familiar.  Each song successfully tells a story, and they'll make sure to drive it home. I think they'll impress the Delta Spirit crowd - which means it's worth being on time for this show.

SXSW day 5 - some of the best Austin Bands

The final day of SXSW 2010 moved in slow motion. Indescribably exhausted, I meandered through a more suburban part of town to Domy Books for the “What by Whatever Day Party.” In the backyard, the sunshine beamed down on a wooden stage that bounced with ever band, beginning with The Eastern Sea (bottom picture), a folksy seven-piece from Austin. Following them were fellow Austinites, The Frontier Brothers, whose vibrant energy radiated and awakened me from my zombie state. Last but not least, The Bright Light Social Hour (top picture) substantiated their recent award from the Austin Chronicle for the “Best Indie Band” (They should also win “Funniest Band.”), closing my SXSW on a high note. Final thought about SXSW 2010: fantastic event, great experience, I only wish venues in Austin were bigger: I had a great schedule planned out but I was unable to get into a lot of shows even with a wristband because they were too crowded... I guess everyone had the same bands in mind! - Meijin Bruttomesso
