Concert preview: Last call at Double Happiness
The Columbus music scene will take another hit when Double Happiness closes its doors following a final performance from J Rawls and the Polar Entertainment team on Saturday, Nov. 25. In the week leading up to the finale, the cozy music venue, which has played host to some of my favorite shows in recent years (Protomartyr and Parquet Courts was a double-bill to remember), features an eclectic series of free shows, beginning with a headlining Youth Hostel turn on Monday, Nov. 20.
The best bets, however, begin on Tuesday, Nov. 21, when smart, scrappy indie-rock crewFuture Nuns teams with force-of-nature punk trioNuclear Moms (Cosmic Family rounds out the lineup). On Wednesday, Nov. 22,Betsy Ross, centered on the powerhouse vocals of singer/guitarist Charity Crowe, joins slurred, scruffy rock four-pieceWV White heading a roster that also includesSteven Kingand Hidden Places. Then, on Friday, Nov. 24, local punk legendPink Reason makes a rare live appearance, closing out a bill alongside a pair of crackling, high-energy noisemakers, one new (Thee Thee's), and one more seasoned (Unholy Two).(Don't Miss It)
