Beachland Tonight: St. Vincent, Buried Wires, Red Cortez, & Blue Arrow Records

20 10 2009

There’s a LOT of music going on up and down Waterloo tonight. To wit:

Tonight’s highly-anticipated Ballroom show with singer/songwriter/musical auteur St. Vincent also features Cleveland-based Buried Wires, made up of guitarist Brian Straw, bassist Matthew Gengler (of Aloha), drummer Dan Price (This Is Exploding, Expecting Rain, Machine Go Boom, Megachurch) and singer/guitarist/keyboardist Alex Tapi­e.  The combined skill level and experience of this group is among the best in town, so you know that the end result excels most, if not all expectations.

Therefore, we provide you with a vid of Buried Wires, in vivo:

In this video link, tonight’s headliner St. Vincent performs in France with Andrew Bird.  Another link takes you stateside for a St. Vincent date back in 2007 at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis.  And one more takes you to a live St. Vincent podcast provided by NPR.

 In the Tavern tonight, we have West Coasters Red Cortez, whose Latin American background adds an intriguing depth to their dramatic roots rock interpretations:

Opening this Tavern show are Sewing Machine War (Youngstown) and Tinamou, who you can see here from a September date in Lakewood:

Prior to both of these shows, Blue Arrow Records hosts a FREE party featuring Cleveland band Below Jupiter, with tunes spun by DJ Zog.  This goes from 7 – 10 pm, which means you can stop by the shop before you get tonight’s Beachland fix.  An easy, non-Myspace way to check out Below Jupiter’s piano-laden rock can be found on
