DANCE YRSELF CLEAN
Alright everyone, it just might be time to stop calling the venue on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street Plush now. Change can be scary, but The Flycatcher is celebrating its first birthday on Saturday, April 11 and it's going to be a prime opportunity to really embrace what the venue has become. Tucson's very own LCD Soundsystem cover band TFA Soundsystem will be providing those jams that typically result in a crazy dance party. The show starts at 9 p.m. and is free to attend. That'll leave you enough cash to purchase enough liquid courage to demand TFA plays "Drunk Girls" again and again.
Out of New Orleans, the sister duo that makes up Rising Appalachia blends a tribal aesthetic with southern soul and jazz layered atop a folksy sound palette. The band, comprised of Leah Song and Chloe Smith, proves that you can do a lot with a banjo and a fiddle and two harmonized voices. Rising Appalachia plays Rialto Theatre, located at 318 E. Congress St., on Saturday, April 11. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. with local jazzy singer-songwriter Leila Lopez performing first. Tickets are $18 at the door the day of the show or $15 in advance.
What do you get when you combine a veteran metal guitarist and a filmmaker in one band? Why, you get Darsombra, of course. The experimental duo blends many subgenres of rock from metal to psych to glam to prog into one weird neat little package with Brian Daniloski orchestrating. If that wasn't enough, Darsombra also utilizes Ann Everton's filmmaking skills to add visual accompaniment to the project. The final product is an intense sensory trip and you can catch it all at Solar Culture, located at 31 East Toole Avenue, on Sunday, April 12. Tucson's Oddkin will be opening at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are $7 at the door and it's an all ages event.
COMING HOME AGAIN
Returning home to Tucson from touring, Ohioan is playing at Club Congress on Tuesday, April 14. Part ambient desert folk and part gritty southern blues, Ohioan revolves around Ryne Warner with an ever-changing cadre of contributing instrumentalists backing him up at any given time. Aztral Folk, Phoenix's Cherie Cherie and Halcyonaire from Oakland will be opening the show. Arthur Greenland will be playing as well in support of his newly released album. Tickets are $5, working out to a buck a band, which is a pretty solid deal. The event is 21 plus and will kick off at 7 p.m.
