Mmmmm …there’s something tasty and irresistible about the lure of a super group releasing a new album and playing a one time show all in the same day. Come celebrate former Dig sales guru Jesse Weiss’ birthday at O’Brien’s tonight. From 6-8 pm, some of Allston’s finest DIY’ers will be slinging some tasty BBQ’d treats your way. Following the taste bud assault is an all out ’90s throwback eardrum assault. Be sure to get there on time as not to miss Speedy Ortiz, Sneeze (yeah we got rhymes), Ovlov and touring band Neur from New Jersey. Close out the evening with a once in a lifetime performance by Big Putts (I wish I was in Jesse’s baaaaaand!) as they celebrate their album release of Bogey Nights (which they will perform in its entirety FOR THE FIRST TIME, EVARRRR tonight). Big Putts shares members and guest musicians with local favs Grass is Green, Trespasser, The Dirty Dishes, and For Sleeping or Jumping. Why can’t I find a cool-band like that?
