Tonight's Show Suggestions



Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive To Death (you know, Spencer Moody's band)


If you're feeling thrifty, Past Lives, Chk Minus and Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive To Death are playing a $7 show at Showbox at the Market tonight (in the Green Room, which means it's 21+.  Sorry, kiddies.)  I have not yet managed to figure out all the hullabaloo over Past Lives yet, but I really dig Triumph of Lethargy, who you can hear (but not see very well) above.  And of course, there's this:

Kimya Dawson, L'Orchidee d'Hawaii, Akida Junglefoot Dawson at Neumos, 7 p.m., $12, all ages

"Anti-folk" credentials aside, for all those hip mamas who'd rather

gouge out their eardrums than listen to Raffi, ever, Kimya Dawson is a

true godsend. A veteran of the Moldy Peaches and New York City's

unfortunately-named "anti-folk" scene, Dawson lent her sweet,

off-kilter folk stylings to the soundtrack to popular pregnancy film Juno,

which earned Dawson some recognition outside of the diehard Moldy

Peaches/Jeffrey Lewis/Turner Cody fans. The quirky sense of humor that

endeared Dawson to a more mainstream audience also lends itself well to

a kids' album, which is what her latest, Alphabutt, is. But

unlike most made-for-kids music, this is a record grown-ups like just

as much as the bitties do. All of us can name a few adults out there

who could use a refresher on sharing, and we all should pity the boring

prudes who claim to have outgrown fart jokes. If you got stuck at the

back end of Capitol Hill Block Party during her set (or missed it

altogether), here's your next opportunity. SARA BRICKNER
