There’s so much live music happening this weekend, it’s basically a joke. Let’s go through this list one by one:
Friday, February 22
- HAP & Los Elk: You may remember HAP from last semester’s semi-secret boner show in the basement of Clinton Street. Half of the people in the band don’t even go here, so you won’t want to miss this. They’re also playing with Los Elk, and everyone knows them because they’re great live and they’re all cute Jewish boys (I think? May need to get Skidmore Unofficial’s fact checker/unpaid intern on that). 8pm @ Falstaff’s
- Late City Nights: Branchez & Tony Quattro: Bleepy-bloop music from New York, along with a collection of Capital Region DJs spinning all night. Maybe you’ll do the Harlem Shake or something (DON’T). 9:30pm @ Putnam Den
Saturday, February 23
- Paranoid Social Club & Mallett Brothers Band: Apparently, if you listen to WSPN today between 5 and 6pm, you could win some free tickets to see Paranoid Social Club. The attached video is a 10cc cover and features a lot of pretty girls in tears, so I guess that’ll be fun? 8pm @ Putnam Den
- Camper, HAP & The Lucky Jukebox Brigade: HAP rolling through for ROUND TWO. Camper doing that thing they always do. The Lucky Jukebox Brigade from Albany. ALSO IT’S 18 AND UP SO WATCH THE FUCK OUT FRESHMEN. Cover’s $5. 10pm @ Parting Glass
Let it be known that this weekend, Stephen Yell will be playing drums three times in 1/4 of the bands listed. What CAN’T that young man do?
