This Saturday Night…

I don’t usually promote events, but I’m afraid of a great one slipping through the cracks.

Some great bands are playing this Saturday night at One Eyed Jack’s, topping off the screening of “Wayne County Ramblin’,” a film made by local rapscallion Dan Rose.

The movie starts at 9p.m. and is followed by performances from the Reigning Sound and Lyres. That’s right, 80’s garage legends Lyres, flown in straight from Boston. If you are old enough to remember the mid 1980’s college radio hits “Don’t Give It Up Now” and “Help You Ann” you may have heard their music. What these songs don’t tell you is that Lyres were flat-out one of the best party bands of the last 20 years, and they continue to floor audiences in Boston and New York City to this day. Their last New Orleans show was over a decade ago, and they may never make it back again. You don’t want to miss this.

The Reigning Sound, from Asheville, North Carolina are not to be missed either. It’s hard to describe this band without sounding like an idiot- their influences are so varied, their sound not easily pigeonholed. I’ll just say that if you’re a fan of Nick Spitzer’s “American Routes” radio show or especially “Little Steven’s Underground Garage” you ought to be there.

I’ll stop with the plugs now. To summarize, if you’re looking for something to do Saturday night, and you like rock ‘n roll, you should consider it.
