Juggling two offers we couldn’t refuse, the Creaking Planks plan for a scorching Saturday night whipping down from playing at Phil + Kimla’s wedding up at SFU to open the second anniversary of JEff Younger’s night (third Tuesday of every month!) at the Railway Club (579 Dunsmuir Street, upstairs)! and he’s programmed some of his favorite acts from the series to join him on the stage there that night.
Here’s the lineup: in addition to having the jug band of the damned back for the opening slot at 10:30 pm, you get a wild and wacky set of unshorn spoken word from RC Weslowski, a set from Joseph Blood and the Blue Tick Houn’ Dogs, JEff Younger’s own inbred redneck orchestra The Family Stump, the WhiskeyDicks (who “blast their way through traditional tunes and modern hits with the spirit of the mad and the thirst of a sailor who just got kicked out of his metal band”) and finally (late into the night) Very Good, the band which won’t have too difficult a time surpassing their name.
Doors at 8:30, admission is $10, $8 for Railway Club members.
PS — pardon the slip in chronology — this show happens the day before the Car-Free Festival mentioned in the prior post.
