When we think of the House of Blues, we don't normally think of a cheap night out on the town. But for five nights a week throughout the month of May, the HOB is
offering free local music in its Front Room (the part generally reserved for
dining). I'm not exactly sure what can be attributed to this rare fit of generosity, but I'm not complaining -- and when you see what's on the roster, neither will you.The monthlong
festivities got under way last Saturday, but tonight and tomorrow
night's shows hold a special place in our hearts, as former Best Music
Pollsters Drug Rug take up residency. And tomorrow night
they'll be joined by fellow psych-folksters and current BMP nominee, Quilt.
Also, word on the street is that Drug Rug will
be hitting the stage as Jónsi finishes up in the big brother venue, so
if you are catching the Sigur Rós frontman either night, there's really
no excuse to not drop in next door and support some local acts.There
doesn't seem to be much information on the internets other than the flyer below, but really, what more do you need to know other than it's
free and there's $3 tall boys. Peep the rest of the lineup to see if
anything piques your interest and head on Lans-down (har har).
