Casey’s Irish Pub – OVIDEO
Ovideo are dark. They’re fast, and sonically take you back to 1977 when Joy Division was just starting to bust at the seams in Manchester. I know, I know..another band who’s sound is compared to Joy Division. Well, yeah. And I usually don’t like bands that are compared to Joy Division. They fail in comparison and probably could not even name three Joy Division songs if asked on the spot.

Ovideo is a soundscape of moody guitars, quick drumming, melodic synth sounds, and monotone lyrics. It’s post punk. It’s new wave. It’s fucking great. I think you will be doing yourself a big favor by checking them out at Casey’s on Nov 4th, 11th, and 18th. They have some pretty amazing openers as well each week. No Cover.

Caña Rum Bar – Native Wayne
Tonight Grammy-winning reggae luminary Wayne Hobson, also known as Native Wayne to his Indie 103 fans, will be behind the wheels of steel bringing us the good vibes via an eclectic set of classic reggae, dancehall, afrobeat, and whatever else he deems worthy of your listening pleasure. It’s Friday night, so if you’d like to ensure yourself a table or bring more than three guests, reservations are necessary. Right near the beach… Boyyyyyyyyyy!

Las Perlas – Kapsoul Records
What does Jazz, Funk, Soul, Rare Groove Disco have in common with Tequila? Las Perlas!!!! That’s right Kapsol Records presents every Friday at Las Perlas with DJ Kap, Ohmae & Chikaramanga. Come in and get drunk…. Or stay sober depending on what you’re in to.
