THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Eternal Summers, Sea Giant EP release, Nixon Rodeo video release

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2014 at 4:49 PM

It’s the weekend all over again. Go see live music!


The Nixon Rodeo, who participated as on-course entertainment at Bloomsday, is releasing a brand new music video tonight going along with the new single, “Now You Got My Attention.” The Knitting Factory show features Witchburn, Invasive, Project Kings and Light Up the Sky. The show starts at 7:30 and is $5 for those under 21 and free for everyone else.

Folk favorites Terrible Buttons take on the Bartlett tonight. Planes on Paper will open for the show that starts at 8 pm and costs $12.

Moral Crux, who has been playing punk-pop for 20-plus years, shows at Mootsy’s tonight along with the Blowouts and Hard Time. The show starts around 9 pm.


The local electronic duo Sea Giant are releasing their first EP Saturday at the Bartlett. Openers include Water Monster and the Finns. Show begins at 8 pm and is $8 admission.

The Checkerboard Bar (which has been open since 1933) is getting crazy with the Flying Mammals Saturday evening for an EWU benefit. The show starts at 9 pm and is free to get in.


Eternal Summers have mastered the art of the musical bait-and-switch, Azaria Podplesky says. First, the Roanoke, Virginia-based trio draws listeners into their third album, March’s The Drop Beneath, with sun-soaked, distortion-friendly indie rock. Then lead vocalist/guitarist Nicole Yun’s dreamy voice breaks in with the lyric “Prove yourself if you want to die just 100 times a day” on album opener “100.” The rest of the album features the same unexpected blend of dark lyrics — especially the opening lines of lead single “Gouge” — with summery guitar riffs and a satisfying amount of fuzz. The band plays the Hop! Sunday at 7:30 pm. It’s $12 to get in the day of.
