Tonight’s Best Bet

The big story tonight is Raliegh, NC’s American Aquarium (pictured) appearing at the Cheatham Street Warehouse.  Purveyors of finely worded alt-country, they put one in mind of the Jayhawks fronted by Bruce Springsteen; yeah, they’re that rockin’. If you want to hear a little taste of their live show, they will be at Superfly’s for an in-store this afternoon at 4 p.m. American Aquarium is touring right now in support of their recent highly-lauded release, “Burn.Flicker. Die.” and sparks will certainly fly from their live show. Blue Water Highway opens for them tonight at the venerable old cotton warehouse at 9 p.m. so get there early. Spectacular double bill!
