California X (w/ Heat Dust, Pope)
Typically, I kick off the week with some mellow tunes to help readers ease into the week. You’ll just have to suck it up this time because California X are playing on a Monday.
Prytania Bar, 3445 Prytania Street, 10 P.M.
Tuesday, August 26
Hard Girls, Broadcaster, All People,Donovan Wolfington
It’s a night of upbeat pop-punk featuring San Jose’s Hard Girls and hometown heroes Donovan Wolfington. What’s not to love?
Gasa Gasa. 4920 Freret St. 9 p.m. Buy Tickets.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27
NOTS (W/ DUMMY DUMPSTER, BLACK ABBA, DJ 9RIS 9RIS)
Sometimes the universe just throws you a good week. That’s certainly the case with Saturn Bar. My love of lady punk bands notwithstanding, they’ve put together an excellent week of shows and Memphis’ Nots is no exception.
Saturn Bar, 3067 St. Claude Ave. 9 p.m.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 28
NOISEWATER, THE QUICKENING
It’s possible to create a weekly rundown of NOLA concerts without a single funk show, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
Hi-Ho Lounge. 2239 St. Claude Ave. 10 p.m.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 29
BEACH DAY, BEN POLAR ONE MAN BAND
Beach Day is love. Beach Day is life. No further questions.
Siberia. 2227 St. Claude Ave. 6 p.m
Money To Blow alternative:
MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY
There’s really only one reason to go to this $45 mini-fest at Mardi Gras World and that’s the Hood Pope himself. If, for some reason, you want to see some of the other acts, this thing kicks off at 2 p.m.
Mardi Gras World. Buy tickets.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 30
GEORGE PORTER JR. & THE RUNNIN’ PARDNERS
BONERAMA, TAB BENOIT,THE BOOGIEMEN, DAVE FERRATO & TCHOUPAZIN,DAVE JORDAN BAND, FUNK MINKEY, TOM FITZPATRICK BAND, PINK MAGNOLIAS
Good music. Good cause. Help raise money for local schoolteacher Carin Graber, who is undergoing proton therapy to treat a brain tumor, by coming out to the Howlin’ Wolf.
Howlin’ Wolf. 907 S. Peters St. 6 p.m.
SUNDAY AUGUST 31
