Talking Heads tribute bands, Sarah Borges, and more

This Must Be The Band--a Talking Heads tribute--Wednesday August 11th.

Who could argue against the placement of Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense as one of the essential works in that genre? The Chicago-based Talking Heads tribute band This Must Be The Band certainly won’t dispute that; they bring their tightly drilled stage show to the Beachland on Wednesday, August 11th.

Opening is this guy, Justin Coulter, who’s chucked aside the pedals and amps he used in Roué to summon a new kind of Cleveland freakazoid:

If you’ve been listening to one of Cleveland’s radio newcomers, 107.3 FM, you’ve probably heard this sexy rocker from Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles:

Borges and her band  take the Beachland Ballroom stage this coming Thursday, August 12th, playing tunes that’ll make the boys swoon and the girls blow them off at the bar.

Far more off the radio radar is experimental folk group Lower Dens (helmed by singer Jana Hunter, whose history you can dig into, starting back to the thrilling days of ‘07), whose sound is nonetheless sensual and lovely in their own way. This video’s great if you blow it up to full-screen and indulge in a bottle of robitussin:

Lower Dens, Inoculist, and singer-songwriter Brian Straw will perform on the magical, mysterious night of Friday, August 13th.
