Dropout Boogie at the Brick
Carnival costumes are encouraged at this Mardi Gras celebration, and guests are also promised delicious New Orleans fare and drink specials. Work off all those heavy calories by getting down to some presumably Big Easy-centric soul and funk 45s from the DJ dudes in the Dropout Boogie.
UPDATE: Ex-Cult has canceled. Bloodbirds and Lazy still playing. Cover now only $5.
Ex-Cult and Lazy at RecordBar
Over the past year and a half, local trio Bloodbirds has released a handful of EPs, the common denominator being a dark, psych-tinged post-punk sound. The group is led by Mike Tuley, who has brought the same unhinged quality to Bloodbirds that he did to his former group, Ad Astra Per Aspera. Bloodbirds' new LP, Psychic Surgery, is out online; the vinyl, which you can order at this show, will be available in April.
