Another Dayton Music Fest has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean more amazing shows aren’t right around the corner. In fact, you don’t have to wait until the weekend to experience some great live music, Canal Street Tavern has you covered with an amazing Monday night show. Athens-based (with some strong Dayton ties) Southeast Engine will playing performing this evening along with These United States (most recently based out of Washington DC).
Both bands have been gaining a lot of critical acclaim this year. Southeast Engine was a World Cafe: Next artist earlier this year, and will be performing an NPR Mountain Stage show in Athens, Ohio in October along with the Jayhawks, Hot Tuna and many others.
The show starts at 9:30p (doors open at 8pm) and is a steal at $5. Tod Weidner (Shrug, The Motel Beds will open) and there’s a rumor that Dayton’s new cupcake wagon may be parking near the club for those of you who, like me, enjoy baked goods with your rock and roll.
