Friday, April 26, 2013's Lowdown

Sigh. Why type words about Madison-based band Cribshitter when the image above and the video below exist. Ah, well. Reveling in the absurd, the group plays sunny tuba-and-glockenspiel-assisted pop while singing earnestly about love, poop and graphic sex acts. 

If that's your joy you can get some of it Friday at Jambalaya with local psychjammers Children of the Sun in support.

More serious Friday options -- big shows featuring Fishtank Ensemble and Stephan Jacobs, to name a couple -- can be discovered below:

What beast from the depths of evil scheduled Antigone on the same evening as Hello Dolly? I can't be at two places at the same time. Stymied, as I am, by an impossible decision, I guess I'll just stay home and rent my clothing.  (And gnash some teeth.)
