Blitzen Trapper tonight; Slowdown's anniversary; Tyson Vogel (Two Gallants) releasing solo record

Blitzen Trapper plays tonight at Slowdown. If you haven't read my 5 favorite things about the band, go ahead and check that out.

Show starts at 9 p.m. with the Moondoggies opening. Tickets are $12.

If you can't make it, head over to this blog later tonight to see my live coverage of the show. Instead of a traditional review, I'm going to try to give some live updates during the concert. Photos and (hopefully) some audio will follow.

See you starting around 9.

Also of note is that it's Slowdown's third birthday tonight. Wonder if they'll do anything special? Probably not, I'm guessing.

Oddly enough, one of the first shows I ever went to at Slowdown was a Blitzen Trapper show. In the weekly Slowdown e-mail, Val Nelson said that the band's show tonight is their 5th at the venue.

Tyson Vogel of Two Gallants (you may remember their previous releases through Saddle Creek) is putting out a new solo record under the name Devotionals. It's going to be put out through Alive Records, which released the first couple Two Gallants album.

Alive is also the home of Brimstone Howl and put out the first Black Keys album in 2002.

The self titled record will be out July 13 on CD, vinyl and digital.

Listen to and/or download the track, "Chest Like Expansive Wings."
