Column 45 (see Oct. 1 entry); John Vanderslice, The Double, McCarthy Trenching tonight

This week's printed column in The Reader is a tightened up version of the Oct. 1 Lazy-i entry/review of last Friday's Two Gallants show. There are a couple tiny differences, but nothing worth putting online again. Next week you'll get a fresh column and a fresh feature story about another record label here in town, one that you probably don't even know exists…

Tonight it's John Vanderslice, McCarthy Trenching and The Double at Sokol Underground. I know more people who are interested in seeing the openers than the headliner. McCarthy Trenching is Omahan Dan McCarthy (Mayday). Brooklyn's The Double is a new band on Matador Records that released its label debut, Loose on the Air, Sept. 13. Their music can be trippy or jangly, experimental (in a Flaming Lips sort of way) and even straight forward ("Icy" off their new CD is a bouncy, organ-driven rocker). There used to be a time when being on Matador was all it took to draw a crowd. Those were days... $8, 9 p.m. Should be fun.
