Lotta good stuff going on this weekend.
Phil Franklin's night at the Midtown Village Cafe, starts at 8, 1827 I st, donation. Peggy Banks will sing, and boy can she belt 'em. It's pretty amazing. Then Buk Buk Bigups, which I think is just Phil and Aaron now?
Tomorrow, Four Eyes show at Naked Lounge on H st (wow, lots of walkable shows for me!), uh oh, 8 dollar cover. Sac is too cheap for an 8 dollar cover. Me and smiller fight about this a lot. He thinks all shows should be 5 bucks or donation. I think all shows should now be 10 dollars since this is the cost of one mixed drink or one sandwich these days. To put my money where my mouth is, I will pay two dollars extra at this show. Luckily, smiller does not read this blog anymore so I don't have to worry about this irritating him. It's his version of letting yourself go after you get married, which is fine because I wear yoga pants about 80% more than I used to. They are cute ones! I predict that someone else will be irritated by this paragraph, though. My point is, and I have argued it here before, that's it's not fair for show prices to be stuck at 5 dollars for the last 25 years just because of the existence of five dollar bills. If 8 dollar bills existed that is what shows would cost. Who could argue that that is fair? And yeah, bands could make more merch but not every band is a band people want to wear tshirts for and not every band can afford to put out records.
Sunday is the True Crime thing at the Sac Living Library series at Time Tested. It is going to be off the chain. It was in the Bee and we know the mighty power the Bee wields with the white hairs. I would love to go but I never feel like doing that on a Sunday and I predict one would have to get there early to get a seat. Maybe they should move to a bigger venue? OMF has a strong personal interest in true crime, as do I.
