Live Music Options: 7/19/10 - 7/25/10

The New Pornographers In Town Monday and Tuesday


I only made it out to once last week; Frankel at the Redwood. I hadn't been to that joint in about five years. It's more of a cool drinking bar with just a tiny stage in the back. A lot of the patrons aren't really there to see the music. Frankel sounded great, I hope he starts playing more shows.
