Justice @ the Paramount, Wed. 4/25; Brent Amaker and the Rodeo @ the Barboza, Fri. 4/27

The Grammy-nominated French duo Justice is here for a show at the Paramount tomorrow, Wednesday the 25th. Though there was a five-year wait between their debut album and follow-up, Audio, Video, Disco, the fact they’re playing the Paramount shows fans have not forgotten about Xavier de Rosnay & Gaspard Augé. Don’t know the band? Tomorrow’s your chance to get acquainted live – doors at 7 pm, show at 8 pm. For tix and more show details visit here.


On Friday evening my beloved Brent Amaker and the Rodeo play the newest club on Capitol Hill, Barboza. This band is so fantastic, recorded or live, it will make you ache. This band takes risks with its entire being – have a listen to their cover of Ric Ocasek’s I Can’t Wait, then grab up tix, which are only $10. That’s right. $10. Also there for the event are the exceptional Pony Time and DJ Greg Vandy. Doors at 7 pm.
