SUN 7/8: Country & Rock

For some reason, I didn't see any daytime activities that interested me.

There is an artist giving a free lecture at MassArt (5:30pm), but I don't know much more than that.


SUN 7/8

Roy Sludge
at Radio, 379 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)

On most Sunday afternoons, Roy Sludge and his buddies dish out foot-stomping country music with loads of wit (their CD's title track is "Too Drunk To Truck").

It doesn't matter if you had brunch nearby or need to shop at Market Basket across the street or just want to swing by for some day-drinking, the doors are open and the tunes are top-notch.

SUN 7/8

Marc Pinansky & The Bored Of Health
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)

On most Sundays, Marc Pinansky of Township freely serves up acoustic songs at Precinct versus the big rock of his current band. The Bored of Health consist of stand-up bass and steel-guitarist as seen in this clip.

SUN 7/8

The Soft White Sixties, Shelterbelt, The Moan
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 18+

Whenever we get a buzzing San Francisco band, we should consider giving them a listen. And whatever reason they call themselves The Soft White Sixties, it fits well for a band that channels soul music and the Velvet Underground into a modern rock setting.

A local band that should be getting its own buzz is Shelterbelt who know their way around a catchy folk-rock party and have a pedigree including much-loved bands like Mittens, Frank Smith, and Fuzzy. Kicking things off will be garage/blues guitar-drum duo The Moan.
