Music venue overload

Jumbling Towers playing @ Cicero's during the RFT Local Music ShowcaseJust when support for the local music scene was reaching it’s breaking point, comes even more good news on the horizon.  Beyond the realm of mere bumper sticker patronage, proud citizens and local bands are stepping up to fill in the void of venues we so desperately needed.

Our friends at A to Z blog (by way of the RFT) have the scoop (as usual) on two new local venues.  Brothers Brandon and Nate Drexeler (of Jumbling Towers) are bringing local music downtown again @ 2 Cents Plain on Olive Street, which will open in September according to Annie Zaleski’s interview.  Annie also gave us the heads up on Foam, a coffeehouse/bar or sorts crafting its shows like it’s original brews (or so we understand) right on the corner of Jefferson and Cherokee, putting it in the heart of the continuously emerging Cherokee Station.

And while your support for the local music scene might be best exemplified by these fine cultural contributors, our friends from Cruisin’ Route 66 have a few casual methods to support the local scene.  With all these new venues, now we just wonder which ones Beatle Bob will patronize each week.

  1. Drexeler reminds me of Cordelia Drexel Biddle from The Happiest Millionaire, which reminds me of how much money I don’t have.
