Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Back in May we welcomed Gypsy Eyes Records, a new local label that launched with an impressive showcase at the 9:30 club, featuring Americana-tinged acts Shortstack, Revival, These United States and Brandon Butler. In the months since then ... not much has happened. The label still doesn't have a single release to its name, the bands have played around as usual and now it's returned with another showcase -- of the exact same bands, with a couple of additions. Singer-songwriters Vandaveer and John Bustine are also on the bill for Friday's show, the second at the Rock and Roll Hotel and the first night of the Gypsy Eyes First Forever Festival. It may be a lot of twang to take for one night, but there's not a weak act on the bill. Still, the second half of the First Forever Festival takes place on Saturday, down the street at the Red and the Black, with some more rocking members of the extended Gypsy Eyes family, Let's French and Scourge of the Sea, in addition to the hushed folk of Paleo and Kittyhawk.

This is one of the events you'll find in our complete Nightlife Agenda, which covers happy hours, concerts and events taking place through next Tuesday.

I checked the Rock and Roll Hotel's website but couldn't find any details on the shuttle to/from Union Station. I know the neighborhood isn't the worst, but I'd rather not walk all the way back Union Station late at night.

Do the GoGs have details on the shuttle?

There's no shuttle running at regular intervals yet. However, you can take a cab or a bus (the X2 stops and 3rd and H NE, behind Union Station) to the club. When you're ready to leave, talk to a bartender or doorman and they'll get you a free cab ride back to Union Station.

* This offer only applies between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.
