I wanted to post about the Kites show that's happening in the area tomorrow, but the internet does not seem to be yielding the proper information. I saw a nice silkscreened poster for it next to an ATM in downtown Northampton, so if you're really interested, hit up Main Street & maybe you can figure out the details that are currently escaping my memory.
There's also this show, on Saturday, which might also be worth investigating:
Sian Alice Group (ex-Jesus & Mary Chain)
Mike Bones (on The Social Registry Records)
Saturday, March 1st
Hampshire College Red Barn
9pm, $5 or free with Hampshire ID
Hampshire AMC/CMC for more information.
