This Week’s Live Music Calendar at The Green Frog
This is a night of local stand up comedians who just want to try to make you laugh. It is not an easy thing, but it is entertaining no matter what. It’s a free event every Monday, which means that you can make a habit of laughing away the Monday Blues.
Tuesday, August 20: DJ Yogoman’s Terrible Tuesday Soul Explosion. 9:30pm. $2.
Tuesdays are always cheap pint nights, with most pints being served for $3. Every. Single. Tuesday. It is downright nuts. Enjoy.
This is a show that should be packed to the gills full. It is an early show. The cover charge should be twice this amount. There is no reason for you not to go to this show. It will be amazing. I mean AMAZING! These guys have been playing music together for 25 years. This is no joke. Seriously, if this one isn’t full, I might just quit.
Thursday, August 22: Br’er Rabbit. 9:30pm. $5.
One of these days you will hear this band on the radio. They could very well be the band that you say, “I saw those guys at the Green Frog a couple of years ago.” They are fantastic and they are local. Catch them while you can, folks. They are heading places and those places never include staying here.
Friday, August 23: Deception Past. 9:30pm. $5.
Coming from the hotbed of country music that is Seattle, Deception Past was kind enough to agree to a last minute booking that had slipped through the cracks. They are a huge band. Not individually large, but numerous. Anywhere from 9 to 12 people will be on our stage and they are great once they’re up there. Check them out, they are a hoot!
Saturday, August 24: The Ames, Yucca Mountain. 9:30pm. $5.
I’m getting sad now. You see, we originally thought we would be back for Big Sandy. That meant that it was safe to book a ton of my favorite bands this week. But, alas, that did not work out. And so I am going to miss Big Sandy, Br’er Rabbit, Deception Past, AND The Ames. That wasn’t the plan.
You should not make the same mistake. The Ames are another band of local origin who are KILLING it right now. They are so good it hurts me. They are made of all the things that make musicians great to deal with. They are kind, funny, gracious, and most importantly, they are talented enough that I’d book them without all the other stuff. Don’t miss them. It’s their CD Release Party if I remember correctly.
And then there is Yucca Mountain. There is only one guy who can rival The Ames with his attitude and kindness and that is Jeremy Burk of Yucca Mountain. You have seen him here before under his own name, but this is going to be a bit different. This time he’s rocking a six-piece band and taking some names. This bill is so good it hurts. You will only be disappointed if you are NOT there.
No, it’s not a joke. Two of the best bands you are likely to see anytime soon will both be here on Sunday for a FREE show. It is usually an open mic night, but I had the opportunity to get both of these bands to The Green Frog and I will never say no to that. This is an experiment though. They are not playing for free, but they are playing a free show. That means that I’m covering the costs myself on the hope that you all will respond. If it works, you may see more free shows in the future. I’m hoping that will be the case!
Jamestown Revival is a little Southern Rock, a little soul, and a little R&B, but they are completely awesome. This may be just a duo, but they will blow you away with their ability to harmonize and play. I’m stoked for this one (I’m hoping to be home by then.)
Rose’s Pawn Shop is a stringband out of Los Angeles that has chops for days. I can’t really tell you how great this show will be, so I’m going to stop trying. Just come down. It’s all ages until 10pm and the music will be off the hook.
