The Old Haunts, Poor Boy Johnson, The Goddamn Rattlesnake, Big Fun – Tommy’s Tavern $6
I had a bit of trouble picking something tonight. There’s indie rock legend Tara Jane O'Neil with The Social Registry’s Samara Lubelski and TK Webb, Jon Auer solo, the incomparable George Lewis, Douglas Ewart, and Joe Morris at the Stone, the heavy Gospel at Northsix, even loveable pop culture figures like The Fleshtones, Ice Cube, and Elvis Costello. But the most fun Friday night thing to do, sans of course PoNaveNunkRockDeeJayShow at Southside Lounge, has gotta be The Old Haunts at Tommy’s Tavern. The Old Haunts are an Olympia trio that play propulsive punchy tunes stamped with high-pitched Tom Verlainey vocals and snakey guitar leads. Think about it – an excuse to drink the cheap Tommy’s booze and the most underrated and rocking of Kill Rock Stars bands in an in the intimate confines of Tommy’s. What’ve ya got t’lose?


"Poison Control" MP3
"Fuel On Fire" MP3
