  • Styx and Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk are playing the Plaza tonight. No, not together, silly. The Styx show starts at 6:30, and the funk show gets underway at 9:30. I've written about my deep and abiding and embarrassing love for Styx before, so no need to humiliate myself again on that front. As for the second show, you need to make sure to get there early to catch local funkstronauts Brown Note who, in my opinion, are far funkier and dirtier than the slap-poppin' New Orleans style of Dumpstaphunk.

  • The Private Life of David Reed is at Will's. I don't really want to say anything about this band/dude, other than to note that he's from a town I lived in for a very long time, so odds are that if I don't know him, I probably know people who know him. I will say that his music doesn't strike me as typical Will's Pub fare:
