Even though Friday Freebies this week was a great big bust, that doesn't mean there's not a bunch of cool events at which to make an appearance. Here are a couple shows we've neglected to clue you in to, and which deserve your consideration for a night out.
First up is Popfreeradio's Third Birthday Party. It takes over the Riot Room tomorrow night, October 17, starting at 6pm. The show is STACKED. I'd list all the bands, but the folks over at Popfreeradio (providing you with music that doesn't suck, online 24-7) created a fantastic flier I'd be remiss in not sharing:
How amazing is that show? Punk, metal, hip-hop, power-pop...all your musical needs are filled, with a headlining set from That Handsome Devil. If you want to get your knowledge regarding these acts up a little bit, head on over to this page, where you can download some tunes from acts playing tomorrow night.
If you're in Lawrence tomorrow night, we'd also recommend checking out Mirah at the Jackpot. She's playing with Norfolk & Western, and Lawrence's own Arthur Dodge opens, playing solo. Her voice is as pretty as they get, and this is going to be one of those shows that you skip and end up regretting later on. Wayward Blog concert reviewer Ian Hrabe has a blog called Why Are There So Many Records In My Life?, and he recently put up reviews of both Advisory Committee and C'Mon Miracle, either of which should be enough to convince you to go.
Listen to some of Mirah's music over at her K Records media page.
