Modern Skirts / Skybox at Project Lodge
Friday, Nov 20 2009 - 7:30pm

Have you been to Project Lodge (817 East Johnson)? If so, you know what an intimate music environment it provides. This bill looks to be a lot of fun.

Modern Skirts is out of Athens GA. Pop-flavored tunes with catchy hooks, nice vocal harmonies, and interesting changes. I think this will be a fun group to see at the Lodge.

Opening will be Skybox from Chicago ... "careening from Bowie glam to Flaming Lips exuberance without bothering to apologize." Sounds cool to me. They will soon be releasing their sophomore LP - Morning After Cuts - recorded here in Madison at Smart Studios. You can listen to some of their music at this stream.

Show starts with Skybox at 7:30p, and Modern Skirts expected to start around 9pm. Only $7!

Have fun. See Live Music.

Upcoming Show: Old Crow Medicine Show - The Barrymore 11/8

Nashville, Tennessee old-time string band Old Crow Medicine Show makes their way back to Madison's Barrymore Theatre. Last time they came through town I was there and it was SOLD OUT. The crowd hung on to every single note and applauded every down home instrumental jam - can't forget to mention the Wagon Wheel sing along. Ketch Secor (Fiddle, Harmonica and Vocals) and the boys always manage to pull in an audience with rousing stage antics and top notch musical skills.

The band has performed at such major music festivals as Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Their 2007 live-performance itinerary included shows in Boone, NC, Seattle, Lawrence, KS, Arcata, CA, Knoxville, TN, Nashville and Boulder, CO, as well as overseas in London and Amsterdam. The band has also toured the UK several times, including an appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival and on the BBC show Later with Jools Holland.

O.C.M.S. is the type of band that doesn’t come around that often and should not be missed.
