This Weekend: Alex's Bar is the Place to Be
Happy Halloween folks in Intranets land! We all know this is by far the best time of year and you know who agrees? Alex's Bar. The famed Long Beach venue has two shows this weekend that will absolutely rule.
Tonight is the Night Marchers. Fronted by former Rocket from the Crypt singer/guitarist John "Speedo" Reis, the San Diego quartet rocks, rolls, pops and shuffles for a killer sound that could come only from Reis.
For some reason, the bar is closed Saturday, but Sunday more than makes up for that. Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss are returning with their acoustic folk/bluegrass/soul hybrid that is pretty much the best shit I've heard in years. Seriously folks, they rule. Also on the bill is Jace Everett, who apparently sings the theme song to True Blood, which just so happens to be filmed at Alex's. But I wouldn't know: I don't watch soap operas.
So Halloween is my favorite day of the year and my two favorite bands are playing walking distance to my house. Needless to say, this is gonna be a good one for me. I hope it'll be a good one for you, too. Sorry kiddies, both shows are 21+.
