Agalloch put on a great show at One Eyed Jacks and I think that Taurus is one of my new favorites. B-Movies, classic rock n' roll, and dirty red dresses are on the agenda this week; not necessarily in that order. You'll find that this theme will continue into next week as well and with the addition of some exotic animals and daiquiris. You'll see what I'm talking about, but be sure to get out and enjoy the tasks at hand.
The Big Top has quite a few shows coming up. On Wednesday, grind band Death of Self headlines a show with Quiet Hands, Suspended Obscurity, The Chronic Death Slug. As usual at this venue, the show begins early at 7 p.m.
The film Surf Nazis Must Die will be celebrating its 25th year of entertaining B-movie lovers at Bank St. Bar on Friday night with the help of surf bands The Unnaturals and The Bills all for free! And director Peter George will be there to perform a song from the film with The Bills. The fun begins at 10 p.m.
There will be a lot going on in the Quarter on Saturday between the Red Dress Run, Dirty Linen Night and the after party at the W Hotel both on Royal Street; all free and no doubt entertaining. So I don't have many more options for that night except for going north from the Quarter to Bayou Beer Garden on Jefferson Davis Parkway just two blocks off of Canal to see a preview of what the Elvis tribute band Clockwork Elvis will be doing next week at the Kingpin Bar for the King's death anniversary. They will play a long set beginning at 9 p.m., so you can have time for everything.
Genevieve Brown is hosting another free movie night at Siberia on Sunday with a Double D feature of Russ Meyer's films Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens and Supervixens at 9 p.m. Have a drink and some delicious food from their in-house Slavic restaurant.
The metal band Abigail Williams has come to NOLA a few times this year, but this will be their last show here. Abigail Williams is disbanding after the tour. They will be joined by Vesica Piscis and local band Serpentis at the Hi Ho Lounge at 9 p.m.
