This is going to be a really busy Geek-centric weekend, with Free Comic Book Day and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 both happening! A great way to kick this weekend off, if you’re over the age of 21, will be to head over to Radio Radio in Fountain Square for a night of great Geeky music with The Shake Ups in Beach City, Goblin King, and Time Crash! That’s right, Friday night, from 9:00 PM to 12:20 AM, is Strange Universe Music Night at Radio Radio!
First up on the list, we have The Shake Ups! Did you listen to Wednesday’s podcast interview with them? If not, do it now! I’ll wait! Seriously, though, the Shake Ups will be releasing their newest album, “The Shake Ups in Beach City”, which is based on the cartoon Steven Universe! The Shake Ups (Patrick, Savannah, Luisanna, Lee, Ed, and Steve) put on a great, high-energy, friendly show that’s full of clever songs and great music! Show your support for this local band, which was voted “Best Pop Band” by readers of Nuvo Magazine in their 2016 “Best of Indy” poll! Don’t forget to bring extra scratch for a CD and a shirt!
Next on the list is The Goblin Kings! Featuring local guitarist, Jason Bambery (The Yavin 4, GNFN’R), this is a Labyrinth/David Bowie tribute act! I’m not able to find much information on this act, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what will be going on! I figure that an act that’s a Labyrinth and David Bowie tribute can’t be all bad!
The third and final band on the list is coming down from Chicago, and they are Time Crash! I’ve listened to a bit of their stuff on Google Music as I’ve been prepping this blog post, and I like their sound! For those wondering who they are, I found this on their website, “TIME CRASH is equal parts hard-rocking space band and sci-fi dance explosion. Ronen Kohn, lead vocalist and wielder of the GuiTARDIS, brings clear, bright vocals which soar over the tightest rhythm section in the galaxy, with Andy Rice on drums, Michael Fye on bass, and Christopher Rice rounding out the ‘bigger on the inside’ sound of this WHOlly unique TROCK band.”
My friends, I don’t know much about music, or the local music scene, but I do know what I like, and what looks like a fun time, and this looks like a fun time! Tickets are only $7 for three bands, and I know Lizz and I are looking forward to it! Here’s the information you need to know, and I hope to see you all there!
