Sunday at The Middle East Up: The Acre, Streight Angular, Night Fruit, Rabble Rabble


This show may prove a necessary outing if you fit into one of the following categories:

- You're spending Sunday, 8/1 moving,
- You enjoy rock music (anything from dance-and-sing-along to psychedelic),
- You enjoy fun.

Streight Angular will be performing their new single, "Alright!", as well as the entirety of their album  "After and Before."  Chicago's fantastic Rabble Rabble have made a name for themselves as one of the top live rock acts in their home city.  The Acre will lull with comfortable folk and rock with rollicking blues, and Night Fruit, a wonderfully noisy and driving rock force, will give you a taste of what to expect at August 7th's Deep Heaven Now festival.

Note this show's early start time - Streight Angular takes off at 8:30 pm, so get to the Middle East Upstairs on time!  $9.

We are currently looking for Ryan Muir's successor - and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his brilliant work with us.

If you are a photographer interested in submitting your pictures, please send an email here with a link to your website or alternatively to 4 pictures you want us to see. Pictures don't need to be related to music.

Left Hand Does, Free Tonight @ House of Blues Restaurant

I'm still not sure what exactly the Left Hand Does, but it's always good.  And tonight, it (or they) does (do) it for free ($0!).

Once again, the House of Blues Restaurant delivers a perfect opportunity for listeners to drop in and check out a band that may be new to them.  The brother-and-sister fronted band has been making a splash in Boston for their Blur-esque genre hopping, their free mix CD giveaways, their bewitching presence, and, principally, their sneakily yet undeniably catchy and infectious songwriting.

What's more, the band has a recently-released album you can spend that extra admission cash on.  It's the last chance you'll have to buy four unique copies of the disc with four unique covers for just $10 (one copy sells for $5).  With any luck, they'll play their epic Lusica.  Cross them fingers.

Closing the night is the amazing Bearstronaut.  Get there at 9pm and bring your groove.

NYC Artists on the rise: Daniel Wayne plays Le Poisson Rouge

Daniel Wayne plays that steel string, sunburst Guild guitar like his mama told him not to. He dresses like Johnny Cash, has attitude like Bob Dylan and plays bar chords with his thumb. You’ll think this guy’s a real-live outlaw until he sweetens up between songs and starts calling the audience “y’all.” Sometimes bluesy, Daniel Wayne has a classic country backbone with eerie undertones: like if Jerry Reed had written the Natural Born Killers soundtrack. Slow songs like “Far From Here” sound like My Morning Jacket, while “The Fool” gristles like a basey Townes Van Zant song. Check out Daniel Wayne playing an acoustic set tonight at Le Poisson Rouge where he opens for Frazey Ford of The Be Good Tanyas. Show starts at 7:30. - Jenny Luczak
