Everyone's sick this week! I've quarantined myself in my little cube corner all week OD'ing on oranges and gummy vitamins, staring at the box of Kleenex on my desk and nervously awaiting my turn. As a wise man once said, the only prescription for this fever is more cowbell, and while I can't guarantee that any of the shows this weekend dare to venture down that path, it's probably better to accept the inevitable and forge forward. Music cures all, does it not? Read on for this weekend's show recommendations, including the likes of Lord Infamous, Vintage Trouble and a roller disco!
Friday (Feb. 15):
Jukebox the Ghost w/ Matt Pond, The Lighthouse and the Whaler, We Should Leave This Tree @ The Firebird 8 p.m. | $13/$15 Brooklyn rock trio Jukebox the Ghost returns to town again, this time with Matt Pond, the Lighthouse and the Whaler, and nearly-locals We Should Leave This Tree in tow. (DH)
Lord Infamous w/ Par tee, Frayser Boy, Misc Ellaneous, Wyte Music @ Fubar 7 p.m. | $15 Lord Infamous is part of the Three Six Mafia, so I'd suggest drinking a couple of bottles of cough syrup before the show if you want to fit in. (DH)
Joe Stickley CD Release w/ Chicago Farmer, Cindy Woolf & Mark Bilyeu @ Off Broadway 8 p.m.|$10 RFT Music's own Roy Kasten did an outstanding interview with Mr. Stickley in regards to this release; read all about it. (DH)
Saturday (Feb. 16):
Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost w/ Luella and the Sun, Melody Den @ Off Broadway 8:30 p.m. | $5/$8 Bob's seen some shit and would love to tell you all about it. Listen as he narrates with the help of his band of rock'n'roll heathens. (MS)
