Burque unplugged

Jim Phillips got the skinny on the Super Awesome Acoustic Show and pianist Lauren Anderson by hanging out in a bar and pushing a 3-year-old in a stroller. In the process, he may have teared up a bit. Read all about the frisson-inducing showcase in ¡Viva Hyperbole! Check out a Lauren Anderson track below.

Rock out with The Gracchi

If you’ve read about The Gracchi, it probably wasn’t in the Alibi. Former Editor in Chief Laura Marrich has played in the band since its inception, so the paper was ethically unable to cover the act, but now we can. Read all about it in The Gracchi Reunite at Garage & Wax. The group’s original lineup performs at Captain America’s fourth Garage and Wax Night. Check out video of Ashley Floyd proposing to Marrich below. Low Spirits • The Gracchi • Pan!c • Pumpin' for Jill • Riley Switch • Sat Dec 15 • 8 pm • $5 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com
