Shows Worth Your Cane's Money

Two things to note for non-Baton Rougians:

1)Every week there is a new edition of the "Tiger Weekly". The TW is the school's second student newspaper, the Reveilled is the first. The TW is more like a tabloid than a newspaper and one of its few redeeming qualities is that it prints a concert listing for that week (Thurs-Wed).

2)Raising Cane's is a fast food chain started in BR that serves mainly chicken (strips, sandwiches, etc.). It is a big hit among most LSU students, and although its definitely not as good as Popeye's, its still pretty good. Most students just call it Cane's rather than Rasing Cane's.

Anyway here are this weeks shows in Baton Rouge that are worth your Cane's money to attend:

1)Rebirth Brasss Band w/ Spoonfed Tribe Thursday Sogo Live $10
-A New Orleans tradition. Rebirth are one of the best brass bands to come out of New Orleans and are one of the best funk groups in the country probably. Rebirth can really bring the house down and their shows are always a great experience.

2)The Hold Steady w/ Swearing at Motorists, and the Plastic Constellation
Saturday The Spanish Moon
-I don't know much about The Hold Steady. The few tunes I have heard from their first album Almost Killed Us are pretty good. Allmusic likes to bring up Springsteen when they refer to The Hold Steady, and I'd say that is a fair comparison. I'm not sure what the charge is but I will definitely make an attempt to be there.
