It’s Been a While.

I know, I haven’t been posting the shows lately, but what’re ya gonna do.

So in the interest of making it up to you, I give you a killer local show this Thursday at the Metro.

Bang! Bang! is headlining with New Black, Pearly Sweets (from Baby Teeth), the Flesh, the Dirty Things, and the Life During Wartime DJs. So you’ve got four great local acts, a host of deejays that always pack a room whenever I’m at a concert they’re playing, and one great band from out of town. You won’t go wrong with this show.

What can I say about some of these bands that I haven’t said before? They’re awesome. New Black’s songs always blow me away – Liam and Patti’s vocals mix together so well as they bounce, fly, and scream between each other. Then, there’s those awesome lyrics.

The Flesh adds a vaguely ska-ish sound to all this punk, while the Dirty Things will keep us grounded in the mud.

Bang! Bang! are a perfect finale; Jack Flash and Gretta Fine always bring excitement and energy to the crowd. Plus, their CD was the only thing I’d listen to in my car through most of 2004.

But hey, listen for yourself to some of these songs provided by the bands:

So come on out; it won’t be long before parking in Wrigleyville is an even bigger pain in the butt because of a certain sports team. Does that make it all better? Come on, baby. You know I’d never leave you. How about this… catch me at the Metro Thursday night and mention Metblogs, and maybe I’ll buy you a beer between bands.

18+, show starts at 8:30pm, and tickets are still available at $9 a pop.

Update: There are $6 comp tickets here.
