Concert Listings Roundup #92

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

Gig of the week:

Biblical (PANIC / Overnight) / The Horseshoe Tavern 2015-04-17 (Friday) [FB event]

A simply monstrous rock juggernaut. The night's openers might not have name recognition, but they're full of veteran hands. Overnight extends the work that Carla and Lynette Gillis (ex-Plumtree) were pursuing a couple years ago in Sister, but pushes that band's heavy undertones up to the surface. Panic, fronted by Simon Oates (ex-No No Zero) haven't played much live yet, but this group of vets already has an excellent album under their belt and hit like The Cramps on bad acid. And Biblical are turning things up to eleven, metaphorically speaking, with recent tour fill-in Jordan Howard sticking with the band to form a three-headed guitar attack up front. Start practising your Devil Horns now.
