hey wednesday. what’s up?

  • Sure, The Boy Least Likely To is twee and folky. The English duo sing sweet songs about the difficulty of being friends with something that eats butterflies and pencil shavings (“My Tiger and Me”), but occasionally they bust out the drums and make you think about setting down your sketchbook and nodding your head vigorously.

  • The bill at Neumo’s tonight is like a miniature indie rock festival. Although Elefant, with their catchy indie rock, is the official headliner, the smeary vocals and fuzzy guitars of Silversun Pickups or the stylings of Voxtrot (whose two EPs, “Raised by Wolves” and “Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, and Wives” are likely to be contenders for favorite pseudo-albums of 2006) could have easily taken the top spot.

  • This spring Samuel Beckett would have celebrated his 100th birthday. That is, if he were still alive. Forgot to send a card? Drop by Elliott Bay to pick up the new handsome four-volume set of his work edited by Paul Auster; stick around for a reading of some choice selections. ReAct Theatre will present a staging of Ohio Impromptu. [elliottbay]
  • Finally, DJ Readytron and friends present an evening of Caribbean jams for a free dance party at the Bus Stop. [braintru$t]
