Smile Politely

The Overture: October 11 – 17

WHAT: Man or Astro-man?, Jaill

WHERE: Highdive ($15)

WHEN: Tuesday, October 11th at 9:00 p.m.

The brilliantly-skewed surf-rockers bring their show to the Highdive tonight for a bit of weirdness. Black Lips-ish garage band Jaill kick things off at nine.

WHAT: Rubblebucket, Stepdad

WHERE: Canopy Club ($10 advance)

WHEN: Thursday, October 13th at 9:00 p.m.

No writeup needed. Watch the video.


WHAT: Lynn and Margaret O’Brien

WHERE: Exile on Main St. (FREE)

WHEN: Saturday, October 15th at 7:00 p.m.

It’s a family affair (insert rimshot here) at Exile on Thursday night. Lynn O’Brien comes back through town and 18 months with new piano-less songs. Aunt Margaret O’Brien will share the set.



WHAT: Janelle Monae, fun.

WHERE: Foellinger Auditorium ($26-31)

WHEN: Sunday, October 16th at 8:00 p.m.

Need I remind you that Janelle Monae put on one of the greatest shows this town has ever seen at Pygmalion last year? She’s so mindblowingly good live that I’m not even going to write something snarky about the ticket prices. Get yourself to this.
