Heartless Bastards/The Goody Two Shoes-Tonight @ Canal Street Tavern've got a huge holiday homecoming show tonight over at Canal Street Tavern. On her first return to Dayton since her move to Austin and subsequent lineup change, Erika Wennerstrom will bring Heartless Bastards back to town in advance of the band's new album, The Mountain (due out on Fat Possum Records February 3). Along for the ride are local garage faves, The Goody Two Shoes. Should be a great kickoff to a weekend of great Dayton music....

would you rather pay $12-$18 to see them in other cities? bands will play where the money is, they have operating costs. there's nothing stating that they HAVE to play dayton. local punk shows have been $5 for 20-25 years now, how about inflation?

no band owes YOU anything! just don't go to the show, but please don't complain later that "no good bands ever play dayton", you get what you pay for.

"Other cities" like Cincinnati, where they played not one but two FREE shows the week prior?

Hey, I'm no complaining, I paid my $10 happily (granted I was really only there to see The Goody Two Shoes), I'm just playing devil's advocate.

But seriously, Dayton needs more FREE venues. Cincinnati, for example, has The Comet, Northside Tavern (where the Heartless Bastards played for free) and The Gypsy Hut (just to name a few), all excellent venues and all free admission. And in return, more people come to the shows, the bar makes more money and the bands get more exposure.
