Friday in Columbus: Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers

YouTube Preview Image

Fresh off tour with Grinderman, prepping for a tour with Acid Mothers Temple, on their way to SXSW, Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers are making a stop at Columbus’ A&R Music Bar to blow minds/deliver chills/hypnotize onlookers. I was fortunate enough to catch Shilpa, formerly of Beat the Devil fame, when she came through town last year and words just don’t do the live show justice. Do yourself a favor and go to the A&R Music Bar for once in your life, lord knows if there’s ever gonna be another reason to go.

Local weird rockers and CD101 Day opening candidates The Town Monster kick off what is sure to be a memorable evening.

Look, Life really is what you make it and as dumb and silly and boring and rehashed and cliche as that sounds, that’s the way the cookie crumbles brother. I really have been on a pretty intense YEAH! LIFE! YEAH! IT IS COOL! don’t sweat the small stuff kinda trip and it’s great. Let’s hang out, I will make you LOL. Life’s to short to be boring and stupid. Everyone should be cool and fun instead. Life should be more Celestine Prophecy and less 48 Laws of Power. Gnome sayin?
