weekend curfew


TBT at Ebenezy’s

Tim Be ToldI just wanted to take a second to focus the spotlight on a couple of local shows.  First, Tim Be Told will make their second appearance at Ebenezer’s Coffee House in Washington, DC this Friday March 6. The Charlottesville based five-piece last played the coffee shop’s basement venue last October. Tickets for this show will be $10 in advance and for students, $12 at the door.  Check out the band’s MySpace and preview tracks from their upcoming EP.

nevershoutneverAlso, Christofer Drew aka nevershoutnever, will be playing at Jaxx in Springfield, VA this coming Sunday night, March 8. Drew is set to perform with The Scene Aesthetic, The Honorary Title and The Bigger Lights as part of the Let’s Get Happy Tour. Tickets however, appear to be sold out after checking on the Ticketmaster website the past two days. The Joplin, MO teenager has a new EP due out this spring, though its first single “Happy” is already available on iTunes. For some free downloads check out the tour’s Purevolume page.

Curfew Update 02/19/2009

Blast of newish stuff right here right now. As mentioned in the last post, both acoustic and full band versions of Parachute VA’s new track, “She Is Love” is now available on iTunes.  Thursday’s new album came out earlier this week. Their latest effort is entitled “Common Existence.” Meanwhile, earlier this month Two Tongues released their long awaited self-titled album. Two Tongues is band founded by Max Bemis of Say Anything and Chris Conley of Saves the Day. From start to finish, this is a great album and I especially have high praise for its first track, “Crawl.”

Michael Gergory has teamed up again with Barely Political, this time starring in a video with Obama Girl for his song “Obama Girl Stimulus Song.” Check out his YouTube channel here, and check out the video below:
