Monday: Two Door Cinema Club, Friends, Guards @ The Newport

We were digging Friends’ ’90s-Luscious-Jackson-vibe when the Brooklyn-based band was in Columbus late last year. In June, Friends released Manifest! featuring a dozen danceable, new wave, pop nuggets that fans of Madonna’s earliest work might enjoy.

Friends returns to Columbus on Monday night performing with CD 102.5 favorites Two Door Cinema Club and Guards, featuring Richie James Follin (Willowz, Cults), at The Newport. Tickets are $25 at the door.

Thursday: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds / Mona @ The LC

You know those concerts that you regret not going to the minute you make up your mind not to attend? In 1994 my friend (and Sony college rep) Andy called and said, “I’m going to Cleveland to see this band called Oasis at the Grog Shop. They are blowing up in the UK the way Pearl Jam is blowing up in the US. Want to go?” Hearing this, I thought Oasis MUST be a grunge band because that was all the rage but when I heard the Gallagher brothers, the music sounded nothing like the music coming out of Seattle so I passed on going with Andy.

I never did see Oasis live though I probably had some opportunities before they broke up. When the Gallagher brothers split off into two bands (Liam with Beady Eye, Noel under his own name), I pretty much decided that the only chance to see either band would be to travel to a HUGE city like New York or Chicago or L.A. So, yeah, I was a little caught off guard when it was announced Noel would be playing at the LC on March 29 and bought a ticket within hours of them going on sale.

The day has finally arrived. As if seeing Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds isn’t great enough (I put his self-titled debut on my “Favorites of 2011″ list), the Nashville-by-way-of-Dayton band Mona (who opened – and thoroughly impressed – for The Joy Formidable at The Basement early in 2011) will kick the night off.

If you like peeking at Christmas presents before Christmas, here’s the set list from Noel’s March 13 show. You can bet it’ll be pretty similar – if not exactly the same – in Columbus (lots of Oasis songs in the mix!).

Tuesday: The Lemonheads @ The Basement

Evan Dando’s on a nostalgia kick and we’re all invited to come on and feel The Lemonheads Tuesday night as Dando and company play It’s a Shame About Ray in it’s entirety at The Basement.

It’s crazy to think that this album, which most of us first discovered due to the (tacked on after original pressing) cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson”, will turn 20 years old in June. While the years immediately following It’s a Shame About Ray were good for the poster boy for alterna-slacker-rock, by the end of the ’90s, Dando’s substance abuse problems had spiraled out of control and the Lemonheads were put on ice between 1998 and 2004.

Dando’s live track record in the past 5 years has been spotty, but word on the street is that this recent run of shows have gone off without a hitch and that Dando’s in fine form. If you went a sneak preview of the potential setlist for the Columbus show, check out the songs the Lemonheads performed in Tennessee on March 3.

The Lemonheads, with special guest Meredith Sheldon, perform Tuesday, March 6 at The Basement. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are $15.
