THIS WEEK: 03.02-03.08

Band: Every Second (
Hometown: C-Town
Sounds Like: "If Thrice and Saves the Day combined for a kind of Iron Maiden-meets-the-Beatles sound. Music for love and war."
Fun Fact: "Look for our theme shows, such as formal dress, slumber party, or switched sexes."
Playing: Saturday, March 4, at the Red Parrot
Why you should see them: "Fred will jump offstage and play guitar solos next to your bar stool." -- Sean McCoy, bass and vocals

Playing: Friday, March 3, at Pete's Tavern
Why you should see them: "The return of Bobby Williams. The addition of famed area drummer Bubba and Angela Kabasan, a vocalist of devilish charm." -- Tom, lead guitar

Playing: Saturday, March 4, at Tequila Ranch
Why you should see them: "Shows are like a big family affair -- brothers, sisters, others, and lovers. And who doesn't need more love?" -- Jake Blazer, vocals and guitar
