Upcoming Awesomeness Live @ the Lighthouse!

Sun Circle live

Whoa, just got word on some exciting performances in the works by the folks at the Lighthouse, a cozy row house-turned-venue for innovative out-sounds. They've been hosting some really fantastic stuff lately (did you go see Paul Metzger the other week?), and these new additions are no exception: An attractive coagulation of locals and out-of-towners sure to appeal to a variety of musical tastes and mind-states.

I'm especially excited about the show next Thursday, an all-out psych-drone spaceship featuring some musicians that are personal favorites of mine: Greg Davis (playing as Sun Circle, a duo with Zach Wallace), and Ben Vida (Bird Show). Details for the 18th, along with an MP3 excerpt from a track off Bird Show's newest record, are below, and a full night-by-night breakdown can be found after the jump. Mark your calendars.
