Sad Baby Wolf and the present tense

No, I’m not going there. Sad Baby Wolf has garnered a lot of ink because two of its members were in the most successful band to come out of Burque, but this doesn’t mean they should be forever defined by that.

Sad Baby Wolves cross paths with the past and look to the future

In this week’s music feature, Marisa Demarco tells the story of a local indie rock quintet, Sad Baby Wolf, and how three of its funny, unpretentious members make the rock and roll lifestyle mesh with fatherhood. The Sad Baby Wolves also explain the origin of their name, the evolution of their lineup and, yes, two of the members’ relationships with The Shins. Read all about it here and see them open for the aforementioned famous band at Kiva Auditorium tonight.

Brotherhood of the (Sad Baby) Wolf

I guess we have to talk about The Shins now

Eschewing the Shins-centric perspective Sad Baby Wolf's publicist urged, Marisa Demarco shares the tale of a local indie rock quintet whose members value family, friendship and maintaining a sense of humor as much as they enjoy rocking out in the limelight.

Some listings for Burt’s Tiki Lounge are incorrect in this week’s print edition of the Alibi!

Here’s the real deal.

How could the Alibi get Burt’s listings wrong? Well, it was my fault. I missed corrections for Friday 9/23, Monday 9/26 and Tuesday 9/27. Here’s what’s really happening over there on those days:

FRIDAY 9/23: Ekscalico, Mark E. Moon and Sad Baby Wolf! (Please note that Oktober People is not on the bill!)

MONDAY 9/26: Breaking Laces and Elected Officials! (Elected Officials were added to the bill.)

TUESDAY 9/27: Obelisk, This Day’s Light and As We In! (Obelisk was added to the bill in place of Of All Forms.)

Graphic Menageries

Bears and cheetahs and bears (with silly string or anemone tentacles coming out of their mouths, and it’s on, like, a notebook), oh my! Three truly excellent local bands— The Glass Menageries, Sad Baby Wolf and Phantom Lake—play at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Friday, July 8, at 9 p.m. Admission to the 21-and-over show, celebrating the birthday of one Gena, is $5. DJ Dame Diana will preside over interim sonic action. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
