[tweetmeme] In case you thought there was nothing fun to do on a Wednesday night in Boston, here’s a little reminder telling you that is definitely not the case!

Wednesday, February 17th, 9pm, $8, 21+: HUMANWINE, Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, Sarah RabDAU at Church of Boston, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston

Ever go out to see a band and you have to endure a bunch of not-so-great bands first? This is not one of those nights. All of the bands are exceptional. If you haven’t seen Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling yet — go! Only Mike and Sophia can so awesomely pull off a two-person band with just drums and bass guitar. This is also one of those shows that will remind you how lucky we are to live in a town with the kind of music scene that lets you see a full night of great music on a Wednesday for eight bucks. (What!?) (more info about the show on Facebook)

Rob at Cheap Thrills Boston also recommends tonight’s show at Church:

Bass-drums duo Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling played their first full live set last year — and they were far and away the best project of ’09 that was inspired by the ’60s spy serial “The Prisoner“. I was there at that show, and they rock out with an arty, punky minimalism that doesn’t require anything extra.

I’m not a fan of pay-to-play music festivals like Emergenza, but it meant the opportunity to see Sammy Miami’s band Houndstone perform at the Paradise Rock Club if they won their first round at Church on Monday night. They had the biggest crowd and came in first place. Now everyone within 100 miles of Boston needs to come out and see them at the Paradise. It’s happening sometime in May — TBD!
