I was really expecting to make it downtown on July 3rd to see Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul band but after a crushing day at work, I just had no energy left. I did not realize what it was until the fireworks started and I started crying. My dad loved fireworks and he passed away last September. This was my first independence day celebration where I could not just walk to the waterfront and hang out with him and watch the spectacular show. I can see most of the fireworks from my living room window and it was a better place to let my sadness flow, rather than in a large crowd.
Monday was the holiday and I worked 8 hours and there was nothing on the music calendar that attracted my attention. Same for today, Tuesday July 5th. Tomorrow, well tomorrow could go a couple of ways.
Aspero Saicos are pretty cool and are playing at ArtsRiot. The write up says “Aspero Saicos: Peruvian Teen Angst featuring members of ROUGH FRANCIS and special guest; Brian Wilson (on bass)
The Soaks: Garage-Pop from San Diego CA
Disco Phantom: Spinning tunes and saving your life.”
That sounds like the way to go, except there is a potentially great show happening at Nectar’s.
Villanelles • Every Wednesday in July w/ special guests
w/ Invisible Homes
I love Invisible Homes and really like Villanelles. I was sure I was going to this show before finding about the Saicos show. I’m not sure which way I will end up going, but I will have a show to write up on Thursday morning. Stay Tuned.
