Concert Tuesday Night

Concert Tuesday night 2/2 at the Villanova House on 802 Villanova Dr. There's gonna be three bands, Ohioan (New Mexico), Weaver (Portland), and Dead Western Trio (Sacramento).
Ohioan has as really trippy psychedelic folk country thing going with a big horn section (which they unfortunately don't appear to bring with them on tour). I'd say they remind me of The Builders & The Butchers more than anyone else, but still different from them. I'm really digging them, so expect a full post in the near future.
Here is their Myspace, here is a video of them live, and here is one of their more mellow tracks:
Open Road - Ohioan

Weaver has a very similar sound, but without quite the same mystical atmosphere, and a little more down to earth folk/country sound. Their Myspace is here, and if you like what you hear, you can download their album free here.

Dead Western Trio is from Sac, and they're pretty good if you can get past the bizzare vocals. Myspace.

Judging from what I've heard, I'm gonna declare this a can't miss concert. Ohioan has one of the most unique and interesting sounds I've heard in a while, and Weaver is very solid. I think the two of them are gonna make a killer one-two punch. Get down there if you get the chance.
