Highlights From Thursday's Concert Calendar 8/9/07

The Moon Upstairs Play a Free Show at Pershing Square Tonight

Augie March / The Redwalls / Bang Lime / Mark Mallman @ Roxy ($10) – Earlier this week I gave away an Auggie March prize pack. See the post HERE. I caught a little bit of the Redwalls performance last night at Spaceland. Kind of like a more mod version of the Strokes. Bang Lime is the rhythm section of Metric. Their new band’s a bit heavier than Metric. Mark Mallman’s a respected glam guy from Minnesota.

The Moon Upstairs @ Pershing Square (Free) – Retro minded band with a heavy George Harrison influence. Their new album is called Guarding the Golden Apple. They’re taking it out on the road with the Silver Apples. If you miss them tonight see them at Spaceland on 9/22.

The Bloody Hollies / Restaurant @ Spaceland – The Bloody Hollies are a rock ‘n’ roll band from San Diego. They list AC/DC, Motorhead and the Stooges as their influences on Myspace.
Indie Schmindie: Strangers Smile / Meho Plaza / Austin James Band / Divisadero @ the Scene ($5) - Presented by Rock Insider

Brad Laner / The Caribbean @ Pehrspace – Brad Laner was the frontman in Medicine. Download The Caribbean's "The Go From Tactical" and "Bees, Their Vision and Language"

The Lovemakers @ Troubadour ($12) - Female fronted danceable band from Oakland.

The Ronelles @ the Knitting Factory Alterknit – These Glaswegians are Sylvia’s guest on Sinking with Sylvia on Little Radio at 11:00 AM today. Hearing her try to understand their accents should be comical. Do they have a hard time understanding our accents?

This Is My Condition @ the Smell ($5) – One man band comin’ straight outta Lawrence (Kansas)

Emily Wells @ Hotel Café ($8) – Flavorpill recommends her, comparing her to Billie Holiday, Joanna Newsom and Ani DiFranco.
