The Life of Ryan

Rosemary Bystrak

Oh, man. The Belly Up wins Thursday and Friday with back-to-back sold-out nights of the incredible singer/songwriter Ryan Bingham, who packs in a double bunch by bringing Jamestown Revival as support. Take a moment to shed a tear if you didn't grab tickets, but don't let it stop you from making other plans. In possibly the weirdest tour pairing ever, the Cult and Primal Scream appear together at the House of Blues. Elsewhere, you can catch local champs Weatherbox at the Che Cafe, or rock out with Blackbird Raum at the Til Two. We all know my true heart lies with indie, and label Barsuk never disappoints, so neither should Trails and Ways, with their sweet female harmonies and groovy synth sounds. They will be appearing at the Casbah.
