The Hoons, and Silverstein
This weekend as the summer winds down it is important to get out and see as many concerts as possible. So here are some possibilities:
You could travel north up to Talkeetna and see Woodrow at theFairview Inn. If you haven’t seen Woodrow you probably haven’t been around long. They are one of Anchorage’s biggest bands; their sound brings to mind Elliott Smith, Wilco, and Death Cab for Cutie.
You could travel south a half hour or so to The Brown Bear Saloon in Indian, AK and see two of Alaska’s most well known Americana acts: Last Train, and The Whipsaws. The show is on Friday the 28th and starts around 9pm.
If you want to stay in town and see a big local band open for a big national act then go to the Egan Center Friday night at 8pm and see The Hoons, an indie/post-punk local favorite, open forSilverstein, a hardcore/emo band from Ontario, Canada.
Whatever you choose, have a great weekend and keep checking in here for updates, reviews, and stories on the Anchorage music scene.
