Guess what? RFT Music has a fever, and the only prescription is more concerts. OK, but seriously, I'm in bed in between a series of psychedelic fever dreams and just OD'ed on some flu meds, so we'll keep this short. I want to be well enough in time to make it to some of these shows, after all. See what's in store after the jump.
Friday (January 10):
††† (Crosses) w/ Dawn Golden @ Pop's Nightclub 8 p.m. $15-$18 Crosses is the side project of Chino Moreno, of the Deftones. If you like that band, it is reasonable to think that you will like this one. (DH)
David Garrett w/ Martynas @ The Fox Theatre 8 p.m. | $30-$100 Garrett is a German pop and crossover violinist and recording artist -- this is not your average concert. Step out of the box a little! (DH)
Michael Stafford w/ Ancient Youth, Lions Eat Grass, Babe Maggots @ Cafe Ventana 10 p.m. | donations Michael Stafford hails from Oklahoma City and plays solo Rhodes piano. Catch some streaming tunes of his here and learn about one of the local openers, Lions Eat Grass, in an archived Fill in the Blank feature. (MS)
Fabolous @ the Coliseum 8 p.m. | $25 Brooklyn's Fabolous has been hip-hopping since his debut release, 2001's Ghetto Fabolous, and bumping elbows with the likes of Lil Wayne, Psha T and Joe Budden ever since. (DH)
Highway Heat CD Release @ The Gramophone 9 p.m. | $10-$13 A little bit of heat sounds nice after all of that damned snow, eh? Pick up the local group's latest CD while you are warming your frostbitten hands. (DH)
