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
’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.
