Say Anything @ Starland Ballroom

6:30 pm, Starland Ballroom, $21.00

"Say Anything could conceivably make some of the best records of all time..." SPIN Magazine "With great power comes great responsibility." Surely a meaningful quote, but who can take credit for it? Thomas Jefferson? Sigmund Freud? Socrates? Nope. Spider-Man.  It goes to show how something sort of profound can spring from an unlikely source. Any reluctant underachiever can make a difference: nerdy dude who gets bit by a mutant spider or awkward bipolar kid in a vaguely "indie" punk-pop band.…

Referred to by most other comics as a “killer”, it means you just can’t follow Vic onstage. And that has been uttered by many very famous stand-ups over the years. He’s an internet…

Whitesnake @ Wellmont Theater

8:00 pm, The Wellmont Theater, $50

The story of David Coverdale - the lead singer and founder of Whitesnake - is an interesting one in rock and roll terms, if for no other reason that he has an admirable track record of having the courage of his convictions.

Aug 20

Flogging Molly ft. Frank Turner @ The Stone Pony

5:30 pm, The Stone Pony, $25

The creation of Flogging Molly’s most recent record, Speed of Darkness, was anything but business as usual for the band. “It wasn’t the album we set out to write,” vocalist/guitarist Dave King says. “It became the album we had to write.” Musically and lyrically, Flogging Molly has never sounded so mature or rousing, nor have the messages of alienation and hope behind their songs ever been so relevant. Flogging Molly has never conformed to industry tastes; they’ve always been the outcasts…
