plus Diarrhea Planet / Lost Jon & The Ghosts

Beachland Tavern, Cleveland, OH
If you like everything from Mumford and Sons and Centro-matic, please introduce yourself tonight to Athens band The Futurebirds. Granted, going from Mumford’s hit-making strum to Centro-matic’s hushed Texas rambles is covering a lot of musical ground, but Futurebirds goes for broke tune after tune. They even have the nerve to cover Chris Isaac’s classic “Wicked Game”, adding hazy, lazy atmospherics and a J.Mascis-like warble that’s more stonery than sexy. Charmingly named Diarrhea Planet, play a whole bunch of dude-heavy punk rock that oh-so-slides into Misfits-esque power from time to time. Starting things off we’ll have the hurt, scared, bitter and funny folk-rock sounds of Lost Jon & The Ghosts, from Cleveland, Ohio. If you’re confused about pretty much everything and are short on drinking buddies, put on some Lost Jon, and things might get a whole lot clearer. In an unsober way.
