While we certainly appreciate the advocacy for local music, it's probably worth noting that the lead music story in this week's issue is actually about Valient Thorr and their old friends The Kickass: http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/after-eig…
Because there are so many "shows" to write about, we try not to duplicate coverage. Thanks.
Dear Hearing Aid,
I know you have to squeeze all of your recommendations onto one printed page, but it would have been nice if you could have found room to mention the Valient Thorr show Friday night at Cat's Cradle.
Cutting the KISS/Motley Crue listing would have provided ample space.
Like KISS/Crue, Valient Thorr put on "a show"--a bit cartoonish maybe, but strangely earnest and endearing and certainly energetic. Even if we could travel back to a time when KISS or Motley Crue were relevant, their shows would be big and shiny but calculated. With Valient Thorr, there is actually substance.
Besides, they have impressive opening bands representing a range of locally/regionally grown heavy music.
AND . . . you could go to the Valient Thorr show and bring two friends for the price of one crummy lawn ticket at the amphitheater.
That's value, Hearing Aid! And worthy of notice.
@Ray -- Amy Barefoot with Bynum General Store confirmed just now that, due to a scheduling problem, this show has been canceled.
Are you sure that Onward Soldiers is going to be at Bynum Store on Friday? Bynum Store web site shows a different band,
Onward Soldiers web site makes no mention of this show.
John, I believe you are correct. It's been changed. Thanks!
Re: "Vs." section- I believe you mean "Sunday July 31", not "Monday July 31"
Check this local music out.
Thanks, it's been changed.
Southern Culture on the Skids is $5, not $10. Thanks -Duke Coffeehouse

said battle: http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/triangle-…
There's a real battle of the bands at Motorco on Friday and it didn't make your vs. list?!
umm... In Prism is not the 1st Polvo release for Merge, it's like the 3rd or 4th
Not true.. its Small 23
Is it true that Archers Of Loaf are the special guest at the Love Language show?
i love you ross grady
I'm confused. In the Michelle Shocked vs Azure Ray vs Brendan Benson section, Chris Parker goes out of his way to compare the [lack of] "natural beauty" of Shocked to the "cuteness" of Azure Ray's Orenda Fink & Maria Taylor. But he must've gotten distracted when writing the Brendan Benson section, because nowhere does he mention how Benson's handsomeness, or lack thereof, compares to the other two.
HOW AM I TO MAKE AN INTELLIGENT DECISION ABOUT WHICH SHOW TO ATTEND WITHOUT THIS CRUCIAL INFORMATION?
I'd love to hear your suggestions for improvement, dobermansweet. (Or anyone.)
Hearing Aid shows are also included in Our Picks every week:
This page -- its layout, its content -- is pointless and confusing. Congratulations.
