Night on the Town



I cannot believe it’s September already! What the heck happened to Summer? Where the hell did THAT go? There is already a scent of Fall in the air, and I’ve already pulled out the long sleeve shirts! With Labor Day MONDAY, more time to get out and see live music! There’s quite a bit going on actually; even if you’re not watching the game tomorrow or heading up to Corvallis.

Long Tall and Ugly

For those of you who aren’t going to the Mac Donald Theater tonight to see the outrageous punk band,  Butthole Surfers, do not despair, there is still some amazing music tonight. From bluegrass, to Indy, to Metal tonight has something for YOU.
The Springfield band, Long Tall and Ugly is over at the Wandering Goat tonight. Show starts at 9pm. I’m heading out there first, with the new EDN designated driver, gal pal. She’s pretty hot, so hopefully the testosterone won’t keep interrupting us from enjoying the show! This band is kind of poppy, kinda rock. I like the song “Hello” which caught my ear.

Red Fang

Then, on our way to Luckey’s, we’ll stop by Cozmic Pizza to catch the Green Mountain Bluegrass Band. This band has catchy tunes, and epitomizes the genre. I’m looking forward to watching them perform their song “First Whippoorwill” With a level of energy that is infectious, it’s a perfect place to stop on the way over to the metal world of Luckey’s tonight.
The Portland based Red Fang Metal band will be playing tonight at Luckey’s. The band’s latest single “Wires” off of their latest release Murder the Mountains is a metal head’s delight. With the Eugene band Testface opening, should be an “in your face” metal night.
With weekend temperature claiming to be over 90 beginning Saturday, we will make sure we HYDRATE well and get home safe… even if we end up getting home at day break!

I’ll see you out there!
ps. I’ll be the blonde with the hot brunette!
