[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Charly Bliss w/ Sad Baxter | April 29 @ The High Watt

CharlyBliss-620

Returning after a pair of supporting shows at Mercy Lounge and The Stone Fox in 2015, Brooklyn grunge pop group Charly Bliss are back in town April 29, on the heels of their debut full-length Guppy, to headline The High Watt, along with local duo and kindred spirits Sad Baxter! A buzzy, band-you-should-know, Charly Bliss combine a nostalgic, poppy, energetic pop rock sound with more serious and personal lyrical themes, and with several years of cultivating a following and refining their style and live show in the DIY scene, they feel primed to break out to broader national recognition. Tickets to the performance, easily one of our most-anticipated of the spring, are still available here, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Read on for more about the lineup, and enter below!

Waterfall Wash Celebrate Their New EP w/ Sad Baxter & Lawndry | Saturday, April 1 @ The High Watt

waterfallwash2016-620

More than two years after the release of their debut EP, Foreign Chords, eclectic local rockers and longtime fiends of the site Waterfall Wash have finally debuted their followup, a new EP called Become What You See, which arrived today, March 31. We’ve had the pleasure of watching the buzzy local group morph from a folk-tinged, poppy, alt rock early sound to the slicker, synthier, ambient, and indie leaning style that characterizes their latest, which is stuffed with layered melodies, huge hooks, high energy, and the most refined songwriting from the group to date.

In celebration of their latest, Waterfall Wash will host a release show this Saturday, April 1 at The High Watt, and they’ve tapped some other locals acts we love- sludge pop duo Sad Baxter and rising, genre-bending low-key indie rockers Lawndry– to support! $7 gets you in, but for $10 you’ll also receive a copy of the EP with your ticket, and both options are still available right here! If you’ve never seen Waterfall Wash, or haven’t checked in on them in awhile, they’re an absolute must-see local artist, and the long-awaited arrival of some amazing new music is one hell of a reason to celebrate!

Waterfall Wash, Sad Baxter, and Lawndry will perform Saturday, April 1 at The High Watt. The show is 18+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $7, or $10 with a copy of the band’s new EP, here.

Catch Liz Cooper & The Stampede w/ Lasso Spells & Sad Baxter | TONIGHT @ The Cobra

Liz Cooper & The Stampede-620

If you’re looking to rock out tonight for Friday the 13th, then we have the show for you, friends! A trio of local bands we are very, very familiar with will be blowing the roof off The Cobra (formerly fooBAR) tonight, and for just $5 at the door, you’d be hard pressed to find more rock for less. Headlining this gem are psychedelic jammers Liz Cooper & The Stampede, with western flavored psych/indie outfit Lasso Spells, and grunge alt rockers Sad Baxter. Fans of the site should know these bands wail, becuase we’ve written about them many times before, but if for some reason you’re not up to speed in the local indie scene, please read on after the jump for more info. See you there!
