Catfish Haven & The Redwalls @ Rudz? Tonight? No? Maybe? [2/26/2008 03:08:00 PM]:
Okay, I'm getting some seriously
mixed signals here, folks. According to their PR people and JamBase
, funky, soulful, retro-indie-rockers Catfish Haven
are playing up in the glorious 'trose at Rudyard's
this very eve, possibly alongside another band of Chicago-dwellers, the excellent Redwalls
(whose booking people
also have the show listed).
When I visit Rudz's Myspace, though, they've got "Comedy - Carolyn Agnew & Company!" listed, and Catfish Haven & the Redwalls' own Myspace pages don't show any tour dates earlier than, uh, tomorrow, when they're apparently in Fort Worth. So...what the heck's up? Did somebody schedule a show at Rudz without telling the Rudz folks? Or did the bands decide (as many do) to skip our fair city for more northerly climes, and the info just hasn't filtered out yet?
Frankly, I've got no idea. If you head up to Rudz tonight, you might get to enjoy some fine, earth-toned, gently retro pop-rock from two fine, fine bands -- The Redwalls' De Nova, in particular, is a great disc, esp. if you happen to be a Beatles fan (although that's not really a requirement). On the other hand, you might get to enjoy some undoubtedly witty standup from local comedienne Carolyn Agnew. Never seen her, myself, but I'm gonna give her the benefit of a doubt and say she's probably good (Rudz is notoriously picky about who they let perform, or at least they were back when I was in a band trying to get a gig there).
Roll the dice, y'all -- up to you.
