Not to be outdone by Culture Chic
, here are some musical suggestions for your last ever Friday on the planet / last weekend before the rumored massive, doomy tribulation.
I’ve already pimped the Third Eye Blind show at Diamond Ballroom on Friday
, but I didn’t mention the opener, who I’m actually just as excited about. U.S. Royalty’s pastoral folk doesn’t seem to be an immediate fit, but the two bands’ upbeat vibes are the same. I reviewed U.S. Royalty’s CD
earlier this year, and it’s still as good as it was then. Definitely a double bill worth catching.
Hadden Sayers, a bluesman with heavy doses of folk and rock in him, will be stopping at The Blue Door in support of his latest album, “Hard Dollar.”
And hometown heroes Red City Radio (pictured) will be swinging through The Conservatory with their manic pop-punk Friday. If you’ve never seen the band, you’re in the wrong. Just do it. If you’d like 250 more words telling you why you should be at this sure-to-be-awesome show, read my review of their “The Dangers of Standing Still
” CD. —Stephen Carradini
