Every Puppy Has Its Day.
So the U.S. finally took home its first ever gold medal in Olympic ice dancing this week. And it wasn't even close.
In fact, the Michigan-based team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White edged out their closest competition by 4.5 whole points.
History has been made, people. Meaning? Why, it'd only be appropriate to go out and celebrate tonight. And who knows? Maybe you'll even make a little history of your own.
Snarky Puppy at The Prophet Bar
To celebrate the release of its new DVD/album, We Like It Here, which is officially due out a week from tomorrow, the newly minted Grammy winners will take the stage in The Prophet Bar's big room tonight. Also? For the next two months, Snarky Puppy will begin streaming a new song from the album each week, beginning with this one, which went live yesterday. The Groovebumps and Banda Magda open. — Porschia Paxton
Hospitality, Air Waves and American Werewolf Academy at City Tavern
While Brooklyn trio Hospitality's brand of indie pop and local outfit American Werewolf Academy's rock vibe might initially seem an odd pairing, it actually makes some sense — especially when one factors in that Air Waves, which plays between these two acts, features a sound that blends those sparse pop flutters with bits of rock and folk resonances. — PP
Maker, Rust Belt Lights and Second to Last at Sons of Hermann Hall
Sure, Maker is mostly known for its standard pop-punk fare, but a handful of cuts from its most recent EP — songs like “I Had to Put My Lady Down” and “You Know Who You Are” — hit a level of soulful emotion few others can replicate. Rust Belt Lights and Second to Last open. — PP
Sleepy Sun at Three Links
Last month, these psychedelic California garage rockers released their second full-length since the departure of lead vocalist Rachel Fannan. And, for the most part, they haven't missed a beat. The band has continued to release massive psych albums that tend to run the gamut of the genre, incorporating elements of space rock and a half-dozen other sub-sub-genre labels that we feel too silly to type. Smoke & Feathers and Fortune Field open. — Cory Graves
Hayes Carll at Dan's Silverleaf
The drunken, Texas-bred singer-songwriter tonight kicks off a week that'll see him performing no less than four shows in the region. We imagine, depending on if you catch him tonight at Dan's or later in the week at Double Wide, The Kessler, or Lola's, you're bound to get a completely different vibe from his sets. Probably different levels of drunk, too, come to think of it. — CG
