About a week ago I posted part one of a live music preview for what’s going on in Columbia in May. However, due to time issues on my end, I wasn’t able to get everything in that you readers might be curious about. While note a complete picture I felt it necessary to try and get a general idea. So, with that in mind, here are a few more shows coming up this month in Columbia.
The Bon Scott 5, The Many Colored Death @ Mojo’s (Saturday May 12th)
Okay, maybe you’re not into indie or folk but just want some metal or some classic rock to kick out the jams to. Maybe you’re in a classic rock frame of mind for a night. Either way, if you feel like that check out this appearance from local AC/DC tribute The Bon Scott 5. You know the music (especially if you grew up in Missouri), you know the songs. Curious about THe Many Colored Death. Have a feeling if you want some hard rock and metal, this could be an option.
We Live in Public, Truett and the Traitors, Mondo @ The Bridge (Friday May 18th)
This is recommended (in my opinion, anyway) mainly for Mondo, whose melodic punk/alt rock draws to mind such bands as The Replacements, the Ramones, et al. If you’re into a more jam band vibe, you will want to check out We LIve in Public.
New Tongues, Jack Buck, Mad Anthony @ Eastside Tavern (Saturday May 19th)
So it’s the 19th and you’re want something heavy and maybe a little dissonant. In that case head on over to Eastside for New Tongues, who will unleash another sonic attack along with St. Louis’ own Jack Buck Ithe band, not the late sportscaster – in case anyone was confused) and Mad Anthony from Cincinnati.
Mojo’s Happy Hour with Polly Finn @ Mojo’s (Happy Hour Fee Show on Friday May 25th)
As we all know Memorial Day weekend is pretty much considered the start of summer. So, if you wanna kick off the summer with some music check out this free show from local band Polly Finn. Still haven’t heard them yet but with members of the Goldbugs and the Harrows, this should be interesting
That pretty much covers the bases. While I don’t have everything going on, I hope to give you readers a good jumping off point for seeing some live music this month.
