Winter Residency @ Slim's: Shows in January for $5
If your post-holiday wallet's feeling a bit depleted and you're hankering for a music fix, let (((folkYEAH!)))'s Winter Residency at Slim's come to your rescue. The program features a series of cheap (as in $5 cheap) concerts, showcasing mostly-local bands on Tuesdays in January. Things kick off next week (1/11) with local folk rockers Sparrows Gate and Sweet Chariot, and continue on January 18 with LA band Entrance and on the 25th with The Sandwitches, whose band members include Heidi Alexander and Grace Cooper, former backup singers for the Fresh N' Onlys (who made our top records of 2010 list). An eve of up-and-coming bands for less than a cost of a fancy beer? Sounds like a Tuesday night plan.
