I'm not one to tell you how to spend your Thursday night, but this evening is your only chance to witness the splendor that is '70s night at Mississippi Studios. Sponsored by PBR and End Hits, this unique cover night takes ten of the finest local bands (including a few that have formed exclusively for this show) and assigns each a year from the 1970s (our 1870s cover night was a colossal failure, so many damn covers of "Onward, Christian Soldiers"). Each band gets three songs from their respective year, so expect to hear a wide range of music, everything from The Ramones to Brian Eno, XTC to Thin Lizzy, and tons more.
Here's the lineup:
1970: Jim Brunberg
1971: Chris Robley and the Fear of Heights
1972: Mike Coykendall
1973: Future Proof (featuring members of Swords Project and M Ward's band)
1974: The DRC 3
1975: Casey Neill and the Norway Rats
1976: And And And & Archers
1977: Petey J. Cool and the the the the Stutterers (ex-Pure Country Gold)
1978: The My Oh Mys
1979: Dave Depper and the Drop Bears
Best of all, it's totally free. Doors are at 8:30 and we highly recommend you show up early since previous cover nights have filled up quickly. See you there.
