Seems like there's always an abundance of compelling live music that gets scheduled right in the thick of Record Store Day madness, and this coming week is no exception. Further heaping the compliments on the estimable Courtney Hambright, we have her lead feature in the music section regarding Blank Dogs. Mike Sniper's hard work running the label that signed the Jameses and a band of his own is all in here. And yes, there's that big Record Store Day show at Radio-Active Records that he's a part of.
On Thursday, Further Seems Forever reunites its original lineup for its first performance since 2005. And it's happening at Propaganda, of all places. I spoke to Chris Carrabba about all of that.
Our resident Iron Maiden maniac Tara Nieuwesteeg got in some QT with Nicko McBrain prior to the band's BankAtlantic Center stop.
And, I got to continue my fascination with Dr. Dog, a rollicking Philadelphia psych act that'll have the Culture Room intoxicated with its melodies on Friday. What is it with Dog bands this week?
If that's not enough, we have: A Day to Remember at Sunset Cove Amphitheater, Robert Plant's Band of Joy at Hard Rock Live, the Button South's Class Reunion at Bash of Boca, the stacked Radio Triptych Art Show at Propaganda, Dierks Bentley at Sunset Cove Amphitheater, and a Japan/Haiti Benefit happening at Respectable Street.
