Time to Paint Your Family Wagon

Family Wagon have finally earned a weekend headlining show at the Casbah



    It's another solid Saturday night, and the Casbah has a great lineup in store with rockers Family Wagon taking the headlining slot. Support acts are Terraplane Sun, who blew me away when I caught them at the Belly Up a few months ago, and my favorite band from Fresno, Strange Vine. The duo has a solid sound, and watching Ian Blesse play guitar while he's drumming will blow your mind. At the Ruby Room, East of Sweden will play the catchy songs off their latest record, and over at Lestat's, Josh Damigo presents another Friends With Benefits show, this time with troubadours John Elliott and Derek Carter.
