Weekly Picks from Music Board 10/31



From this week’s Music Board pages:

Every Time I Die w/ Underoath, Poison the Well, Maylene, Sons of Disaster @ Music Farm, Sat. Nov. 3

Buffalo, N.Y.’s Every Time I Die played last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live and visit Charleston on Sat. Nov. in support of their album, The Big Dirty. Writer Leah Weinberg sez, “The title says it all: the music is both big and dirty in a heavy, Southern rock sort of way. It’s a sound few would expect from four upstate New Yorkers, but it’s one that has evolved with the band over the last nine years together.” Doors open at 7 p.m.

Haley Shaw w/ The Dirt & The Flood, The Home Team @ The Map Room, Sat. Nov. 3

City Paper’s Stratton Lawrence calls local singer Haley Shaw “one of the Sirens” of Charleston: “For a woman who writes such heartbreaking lyrics, Shaw is typically bubbling over with happy energy. Her ice-cream-melting-smooth voice is so captivating that even a song about the depths of loneliness and lost love can leave you smiling.” The late-evening show is free of charge at 10 p.m.

Old Time Relijun w/ Oicho Kabu, Smallpox @ Cumberland’s, Sat. Nov. 3

Nervous and weird, rock band Old Time Relijun have been making a racket for over 10 years. They visit Charleston in support of a mighty trilogy of songs, noise pieces, and stories of global misadventure. Based in Portland, the Oregonians are armed with a final installment called Catharsis in Crisis. “Each song is like a small shard of a larger mirror, so that each piece reflects another piece,” they say. Cover is $8 and the show starts at 10 p.m.
