The weekend is almost here! And this is how you can get it started early!
Patterson Hood at Eddie’s Attic
“Back in January, worn out from having spent a year on tour and facing a new album’s release and another year spent mostly on a bus, away from the comforts of home and family, I decided to try to write a book. I had made a couple of stabs in that direction before (as well as a couple of screenplays) but had so far failed to complete one. The thing is, I love to write on the road. I write most every day out there. It’s usually not songs, as completing a song amid all of the noise, distractions and music blasting on the bus is very difficult (I do often start songs there that get finished later) but writing non-musical compositions comes pretty easy for me out here and it sure passes the time. Beside, I had an idea for a story I wanted to write and it started coming very easily. By our third month on the road I already had a pretty firm outline of what I wanted and several chapters that I felt really good about.”
General admission tickets are $20 in advance, $26 at the door. Table seats are $25 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 6:30pm.
Frontier Ruckus w/ special guests at The EARL
Sitcom Afterlife is the 4th LP by Frontier Ruckus. Those on board since 2008’s The Orion Songbook have seen the band’s proverbial minivan careen wildly through a microcosmic Metro Detroit in sharpening detail. Culminating with 2013’s Eternity of Dimming—a double-album of 20 songs and some 5,600 words—the band’s ambition to extract universal life from personal minutiae had received its greatest indulgence. And now the strip malls have been numbered. The esoteric significance of each Dairy Queen is cataloged with hyper-specificity. In sanctifying a seemingly mundane suburban terrain, songwriter Matthew Milia’s obsessive nostalgia has taken on a robust physicality.
