It's Friday the 13th. And there's a full moon out tonight. Be scared.
There's lots going on this weekend, the Macro-Fi Reunion show, the Alan Six gig @ 11th Street Records, the return of the Battered Midgets @ the Double Clown, but really, seriously, this Saturday night's gig @ the Dive is the only one you need to concern yourself with. This, my friends, is the only place to be on Saturday, and I'll tell you why - Residuels. The Acid Sisters. No mystery band because they were just too mysterious to be on the bill... ha ha ha
That handsome in a gay sort of way face on that flyer is my beloved friend Pitt. Mr. Pittney Rosenthal, Esq. is his official title nowadays. After moving back East, he's reimagined himself as some sort of Hipster Roky Erickson, and his band Residuels, currently on Tour with the Buzzcocks, if you can believe that shit, are playing the Dive on Sat. I can't tell you what his new band Residuels sounds like, or maybe I'm scared to tell you what I think they sound like, I dunno, but here's the bands new single. Check it out yourself and see what you think, and if you like it, it will be available at the gig! :-)
And as if that's not enough reason to be at the Dive on Sat., then there's also on the bill The Acid Sisters, a group of Downtown artists making a swampy, psychedelic noise as of late. Featuring Elayna and Nick on vocals and guitars respectively, I'm curious as to what they're gonna sound like live. I can't think of a better way to spend the day than watching your friends new musical endeavors. See you there!!
