Check out an eclectic show at Momo’s tomorrow night.  Doors at 10 pm.

From the promoter:

Gigs connected by long winding roads through North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee and on to Colorado and California, via the many places in between, have helped weave the charm and energy that defines The Belleville Outfit’s second album, TIME TO STAND, which was released in May of 2009. The album showcases the young band’s signature style of gypsy swing, jazz, big band, country and Americana roots music, highlighted by songs including “Sunday Morning,” “Nothing’s Too Good for My Baby” and “Once and For All.” Time to Stand follows the band’s successful 2008 self-released debut, WANDERIN’, which spent more than 20 weeks on the Americana radio chart, rising to 10.

Sleepy Sun with True Widow, Astronaut Suit and Brother Ghost

This looks to be an interesting show at The Parish.  Doors at 8:30 pm.  Tickets are $10 and you can buy them here.

From the promoter:

Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra Gold Country, The San Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine climes of the Southland. They came together—young and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa Cruz. And there they birthed the Sleepy sound—dead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin’, soul, sonic science and dead-on pop surgery. Wooden, earthy, stratospheric, and swinging…California music of beautiful contrasts for conflicted times.

RED RIVER REGGAE ROCK: Tin Can Phone, Shark Attack, Sons of the Beach, DJ Ivor

Check out some Texas reggae bands at Club Encore, doors at 9 pm.  Cover is $7, or buy advance tickets for $6 here.
