Boston Events

Tomorrow night at the Paradise Lounge

The show I booked at the Paradise Lounge featuring three of my favorite Boston-ish area bands is tomorrow night (Tuesday, January 31, 2006)! Doors open at 8pm, it’s 18+ and $7. If you mention that you heard about the show from, you’ll save two bucks. The bands that will be playing include Uncle Shaker, an Americana band I saw at The Burren a few months ago. I wasn’t sure what to expect — it’s definitely not the indie rock/pop sort of music I usually listen to. But they are damn good. You can sample their tunes on the Uncle Shaker website. The MP3s are good, but their live show is better. The Curtain Society from Worcester will be playing tunes from their new album — the first in five years. It was worth the wait; but hopefully they’ll get around to making their next album before 2010! The last band is Tom Thumb & The Latter Day Saints who I’ve mentioned include two people who work with Michael at the Harvard Book Store. Andy, the singer, is a suberb songwriter and performer. He had been doing mostly solo shows under the Tom Thumb pseudonym but added a full band the past year. The band recently signed to independent label Three Ring Records.
