The Rheostatics: Winter Nationals


Local indie heroes The Rheostatics are smack-dab in the middle of the "Winter Nationals", a week and a half long festival of sorts at The Horseshoe Tavern. Starting last Thursday, the band is showing films, having a guest vocalist night (How awesome is that? - This reminds me of a time I saw a kid sing "Karate Man" with the Superfriendz, and was totally blown away), and showcasing some truly excellent locals acts.

Here's the rest of the schedule:
Tonight: w/ Creaking Tree String Quartet - Doors @ 9:30, $8 adv $10 door
Tomorrow: NEW MUSIC NIGHT - Doors @ 9:30 - FREE
Wednesday: Whale Music night w/ Great Aunt Ida - Doors @ 9:30 $8 adv $10 door
Thursday: GUEST VOCALIST NIGHT - w/ Great Aunt Ida - Doors @ 9:30 $10 adv $12 door
Friday: w/ Great Aunt Ida - Doors @ 9:30; $12 adv $16 door
Saturday: w/ Sour Keys - Doors @ 9:30 $12 adv $16 door
