2/28 - Bryan Scary & the Shredding Tears, Draft Riots & Deer Meet

Every year around this time, I get a charge of energy from the exposure to new bands/material from our locals due to Louisville is for Lovers. I know you may be sick of reading my constant blogs about Li4L but you can always click off... (hah, get it... internet humor)

Anyway, I saw a few bands I had been meaning to see and one of which was Deer Meet. First I saw Jimmy (singer/guitar) play solo at Ear X-tacy and he held his own; just him, a strat and a crowded room. The next evening I saw 2/3 of Deer Meet at Skull Alley and they rocked they cold, beer-less (although advertised) venue (don't get me started on Skull Alley right now.) Like I said though, they did great especially considering their drummer couldn't make it and the drummer from The Deloreans sat in. Speaking of those shows, I may have a recording or two up my sleeve to share in the coming weeks...

On to the point, right? This Saturday Deer Meet will be playing Uncle Pleasants with Draft Riots and Bryan Scary & the Shredding Tears. Bryan is outta Brooklyn, NYC and Deer Meet and Draft Riots are from the Ville as we've already discussed. The show is $8adv/$10door and doors are at 8pm at Uncle Pleasants on S Preston (street, not Highway...)

give a little listen to a couple of songs I taped of Deer Meet at Skull Alley a coupla weeks ago...

Sorry not to have any mp3s from the other bands to play... just click on the band's names to get you to somewhere you can give these guys a listen. Be strong Louisville!

I'd be interested to hear what you have to say about skull alley, non-publically of course.
