Cheap Shows Will Make Upcoming Tuesdays in January Better Than Regular Days In January

Catch Sparrows Gate in a slightly more convenient venue next Tuesday at Slim's, at the start of the Winter Residency show series.
Wait! Before that post-Xmas, post-smashed-New-Year's-resolution glumness fully sets in, you have a chance to truly attain your dream for 2011.

As long, that is, as your dream for 2011 is to attend coolish shows for cheap.

If you can find a five spot and a place called Slim's down in Soma, you can dodge the deep-winter blues. Next week, therein, will commence the Winter Residency, a concert series of mostly local artists performing together for rates even your debt-besotted self can afford.

That price would be $5, and no, it's not the only good part here. The first Winter Residency -- presented by local show-thrower FolkYeah on Jan. 11 -- features the sweet, countrified pop-rock of locals Sparrows Gate and Sweet Chariot. On the second such night, Jan. 18, otherwordly blues savant Entrance performs solo at the top of the bill, with 3 Leafs and Nectarine Pie farther down. On the third (and apparently final) Winter Residency Jan. 25, we're stoked to see Americana ramblers The Sandwitches headlining, with S.F. post-punk outfit the Art Museums playing in the second-to-top spot.

Certainly you've had plenty of chances to see all these bands play before. But all together, for $5, on a night when you're usually home watching Cheers reruns and pining for sunlight? There might just be hope for 2011 yet.
