The weekend: Chevy, Criteria, Terminals

This is what's on my radar for this weekend:

Tonight, cover band 57 Chevy plays three sets at O'Leaver's. Among their members is Ladyfinger frontman Chris Machmuller's dad. Will Chris take the stage and join the hi-jinx during a set? $5, 9:30.

Tomorrow night: Criteria, The Stay Awake and Facing New York at Sokol Underground. This is the official When We Break CD release show, and I suspect it'll be somewhat packed despite the 4.8 (out of 10) review that the CD received on Pitchfork, which has quietly become one of the most important indie music news/criticism outlets in the biz, rivaling Magnet. The writer categorizes Criteria as "emo" and goes out of his way to say 'let's not debate it, and oh, by the way, post-hardcore is emo.' Of course he's wrong on both counts, but to use that reasoning to discount the CD's value is weak anyway. If he doesn't like it, he should just say so instead of labeling it something that it clearly isn't. Oh well. Amazingly only $5, 9 p.m.

Then Sunday night it's The Terminals and The Dollyrots at O'Leaver's. The Dollyrots are a Warped Tour power-pop band who, if they don't pay attention, could get eaten alive by The Terminals, who will be unveiling a three-piece line-up.

Also Sunday night, the screening of the film Spend an Evening with Saddle Creek at the Dundee Theater (see yesterday's blog entry). 7 and 9 p.m. showings. I assume it'll be the usual $8 ticket price.
