Test the Waters at Casbah on Wednesday



    5 Falltacular Ways to Connect With Your Family
    Waters are lookin' good at Casbah this Wednesday night.

    When a band leaves a strong impression on me, I tend to be a cheerleader for them forever. Such is the case with Waters. Lead vocalist Van Pierszalowski fronted Port O'Brien, and since they disbanded and formed Waters, I've been an even bigger fan, especially since the band has done the work to play show after show here and build up their audience organically. On this Wednesday night, they perform a headlining slot at the Casbah, and with Ed Ghost Tucker and Bit Maps opening the show, this is going to be a great hump day. Still, if you're more loyal to your college rock, Guster return, and they certainly put on a great show every time they come around, and with viloinist Kishi Bashi opening this House of Blues show, you are certain to be in for an unexpectedly awesome show. Around town, Junior Reid is at Belly Up, while Madball are at Soda Bar, and Cryptic Languages make a special appearance at Til-Two Club.
