I don't usually blog about a Tuesday night ...but there's a couple of things to call your attention to for tonight ....
At the Aladdin it's the triple bill of Dave Alvin, Chris Smither, and Peter Case - can't wait to hear some of my favorite songwriters swap songs, play and harmonize behind each other, and probably needle each other a bit ... three veterans who know their way around a tune and know how to entertain an audience. Shouldn't miss this one .... 8 pm, $25
Over at the Alberta Rose it's a sold out show of spoken word with Henry Rollins ... maybe you can catch a ticket at the door if you really want to go.... 8 pm, $30
The first Tuesday Notes from the Underground series at the Mission Theater will feature The Kora Band. They just won the "2010 NW Jazz Recording of the Year" award from Seattle's Earshot Jazz .... 7:30 pm, $7
Happy hour music to start your evening .... how about the weekly Jackstraw gig at the Laurelthirst? .. 6 pm, no cover
And, up at the Mock Crest it's Atomic Cocktails time, with Johnie Ward and the Eagle Ridin' Papas featuring Lauren Sheehan on vocals .... 8 pm, no cover
Yep, Tuesday .... get on out!
