On Saturday in Brighton and Sunday at the Mid East Downstairs, Piebald was shooting video footage for their new "Accidental Gentlemen," which is set for release on Tuesday, the 23rd. (CD release party at the Mid East Upstairs that night. Yow!)
Stopped by the club on Sunday, and picked up (in addition to the excellent "Gentlemen") a new(-ish) disc by rawkers Barnicle (Luke Garro, of Piebald, doubles as Barnicle's drummer.) Some of the clips are available on the band's MySpace page.
In some club-related news, word is the Zeitgeist is about to be reborn in Union Square, near P.A.'s Lounge; the Diesel Cafe, one informant says, is going to split the space with the Zeitgeisters. Also: The Lily Pad, in Inman, looks to be -- after a few weeks of utter reconstruction disarray -- in much better shape. And hey, what's happening with O'Brien's, in Allston? It's all closed up and shuttered-down.
Lots of noise about Ben Folds' gig with the Boston Pops in May. Man. Any predictions?
Also: Soul Touch, at the Middlesex Lounge (on Wednesdays) is winning some converts. If you're into that whole revival thing, this should be next on the checklist.
Also, ALSO: WERS, the best, *best* radio station in Boston -- and chosen wake-up soundtrack for a generation of part-time, low-level local rock critics -- just got with the whole interweb/MySpace thing. Make them your friend.
