The Fourth of July holiday gave some of us the opportunity to have a short work week. Looking ahead to this weekend in music, it looks like we’re getting a head start on things with several great shows slated for Thursday night.
Here’s the rundown:
– South Park Tavern will feature Brooklyn’s the Judy Blooms along with Roley Yuma and Andy Smith of Andrew & the Pretty Punchers. For those unfamiliar with the Judy Blooms, it’s the brainchild of former Daytonian Jake Geisege who you may remember from the band Wild & Free. This all-ages show is $5 and begins around 9pm.
– Forgoing the usual Thursday open mic night for a week, Blind Bob’s is featuring an evening of music presented by Poptek Records. Chicago’s The Love of Everything will join Poptek’s own Kris N on the stage. Brooklyn’s Vox Humana and local musician (and Blind Bob’s open mic host) Brandon Hawk will round out the bill. This show is 21+ and costs $5.
– If you want to rock out for a cause, head over to Vex. The Jackalopes will join Jasper the Colossal along with Todd the Fox and Henrique Couto and the Tallywacker Express (members of Splattertude). The show is a benefit for local filmmaker, Andy Copp’s newest project, Church of the Eyes. This show is $5 at the door and gets started around 10pm.
-You can also put your vote in for Round One of the Dayton Band Playoffs over at Canal Street Tavern. Thursday night features performances by The Whataveya, N.P.D., and A Shade of Red. $3 gets you in the door, and you’ll get to vote on your favorite act during this seeding round of the Playoffs (the top 16 bands move on to Round Two).
Club Vex presents “Winter Wonderland“, an art show featuring work from several local artists this Thursday night at 9 p.m. Thursday nights at Vex showcases art and music from regional artisans and DJ’s. Cover charge is only $5.
