CU Sound Revue

Error House, the house venue at 505 Haines Blvd. in Champaign, will host another ambitious show tonight, this time featuring hard-core acts Transistor Transistor (on Level-Plane, and out of New Hampshire) and The_Network (also from NH, but on Black Market Activities). The bands are touring the nation together and will make their only Champaign stop at the intimate setting of Error. Opening the show will be local band 1999 (playing their announced last show) and Salt Lake City outfit, Gaza. Tickets for the event are $10 on the day of the show, with will call available for those wishing to ensure a spot. Doors are at 6:30 p.m. with the show kicking off at 7 p.m. For more info on Error House and other upcoming shows, check out
Over at Aroma Café, the weekly acoustic series will get an injection of world music style as Turinos and Kate Hathaway team up to offer an evening of Andean music. The show is free and runs from 8-10 p.m. Andean music is specific to certain areas in South America inhabited by the Incans and one of its primary instruments is the charango, which Hathaway employs in her group.
Cowboy Monkey’s free Thursday show will be filled by Darling Disarm, featuring the virtuoso (sic) guitar work of this columnist — who will be subbing for an absent Tractor Kings, who will be rescheduling. The show starts at 11 p.m., is free, and will feature a surprise opener.
Saturday night is all right for fighting and also for seeing a rock show in the Mike ‘n Molly’s beer garden. Just don’t do both at the same time, otherwise Murph will have to show off his twenty-four-inch pythons. This Saturday you can enjoy an 8 p.m. show featuring former CU resident and current Chicagoan Todd Kessler in the opening slot, followed by the smart hip-hop/rock sound of Curb Service. In a late addition to the bill, St. Louis band and CU favorite Gentleman Auction House will round out the bill, along with headliner Sangamon. There is no listed cover, but we’ll guess $5 (a bargain at 1.4 times the price!).
On Sunday, The Highdive will present Little Pieces, the new project from Rob and Grant of BANTHA, a former CU band. The band will be bookended by Casados and New Ruins, which shapes up as a pretty great lineup. The show starts at 9 p.m. and the cover is $5.
