Recommended Tuesday Show: The Beets, Christmas Island, Beach Fossils, and Total Slacker at Cake Shop

The Beets, Beach Fossils, and Total Slacker are all well-tread territory on this blog by now.  I like all three of them, and they’re clawing their way out of the usual Brooklyn DIY venue (or Queens venue, as the case may be for The Beets) to play this show at Cake Shop.  It’s Christmas Island, though, that makes this show extra worth going to, even if you’ve already seen the other bands a million times (even if you have, it will still be a fun show, and if you haven’t, then four good reasons to go out on a Tuesday!).  Christmas Island is from San Diego and has released material on In the Red, Woodsist, Sacred Bones, and Captured Tracks, at least according to their MySpace.  Their jangly garage tunes sound like a lot of other things, but they definitely fit more into the San Diego/San Francisco scene than Brooklyn, which is at least somewhat refreshing.  I like the song at the end of this post, and definitely think they’re worth checking out.  Also, Blair and Dinosaur Feathers are playing at Pianos, and that will also be an excellent show to see.

    I did not make the Yeasayer show my show of the day because I recommended the show yesterday, since there wasn’t anything else I was interested in yesterday. I won’t recommend the same band two nights in a row, especially a bigger group, because I love giving love to more bands and spreading around cool, different MP3s. But yes, I absolutely love Odd Blood. I’m jealous you got to go to the show!
