Friday 9/28: A Haircut, Warsaw Vices, Bike Cops, The Lurk Hards @ Freewheel Bikes

A Haircut (via: @toddgaron)
There are too many great shows in Madison this weekend! Tonight in particular, there are four worthwhile shows going on around town. There's the Boy Dirt Car show at Dragonfly Lounge (401 East Washington Avenue, 10pm, $5, 21+) with Lens, Golden Donna, and Maths Balance Volumes. Milwaukee's Boy Dirt Car is an industrial noise band featuring members of Die Kreuzen who've recently reassembled after a lengthy hiatus that began in the late '80s. There's the Mission to Burma show at the High Noon Saloon (701 East Washington Avenue, 9:30pm, $18, 18+) with Madison's Bes Monde and Minneapolis's Pink Mink. Word on the street is that Burma will be playing all the hits, including "That's When I Reach For My Revolver". There's the free indie folk show at the Memorial Terrace (800 Langdon Street, 9:30pm, free, all ages) featuring Chicago's Dastardly, Madison's Pioneer, and Houston's Buxton.

At the top of my list is the awesome show at Freewheel Bikes. Warsaw Vices are from Chicago and play catchy, drunk power pop. Bike Cops are also from Chicago and play jangly surf pop (it's a little slow, which you'd expect since it's from the coast of Lake Michigan rather than the coast of the Pacific). Madison's The Lurk Hards are skater folks playing old-timey tunes. Our friends A Haircut will be topping it all off with their lo-fi two-piece basement punk.

Here's a sneak preview of A Haircut's "Mother" from an upcoming split cassette:

Freewheel Community Bike Shop. 1804 South Park Street #5. 8pm. $5. All ages.

Go to at least one of these shows tonight and have a great time!
