Concert Calendar: Loretta Lynn, Sebadoh, Yelawolf
Thursday, March 17, 9:30 Club ($55), 7 p.m. doors
The 78 year-old “First Lady of Country Music” has been performing for almost 50 years. Known for hits like “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Lynn had a resurgence of popularity in 2004 when she released Van Lear Rose, produced by Jack White. Flirting was evident.
Saturday, March 26, Black Cat ($18), 9 p.m. doors
Pioneers of lo-fi Sebadoh have been touring with their original lineup, or almost-original lineup since 2007. They have reissued their album Bakesale (1994) and Harmacy (1996) and are touring in support of them. They play some fast songs, and they play some slow songs. Beware of aged hipsters.
Monday, March 7, Rock N Roll Hotel ($15), 8 p.m. doors
Yelawolf is a rapper from Alabama who raps about meth labs and other crazy stuff. He’s been releasing mixtapes for a few year’s now, but his latest, Trunk Musik 0-60, has gotten attention from critics and fans across the country. He has signed to Eminem’s Shady Records, so keep an ear open for his upcoming album, Radioactive.
SweetLife Festival feat. The Strokes

So are they going to eat salad? We don’t know either. Tickets have yet to go on sale. Hope we can make it the day after Georgetown Day. Get on their email list to know about the presale.
