Tuesday 7.22

  • Bloodcow

Bloodcow, Colossus
Reservoir—The thundering Omaha herd of Bloodcow meets somewhere between Torche and The Cherry Valence, the quintet's slick mainline riffs cutting upward at high frequencies through a bass-and-blast-fortified backend. Think of Kirk Hammett forsaking easy California living and getting back in the van. You get howled hooks proclaiming "You're gonna die" and song titles like "War Against Religion." Raleigh's Colossus delivers barroom British metal megalomania with winks, smiles and mean guitar-monies. Always a good time. Donate kindly at 10 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Stephen L. Carter
Regulator Bookshop—Stephen L. Carter established himself as a power player in the legal thriller genre with his debut novel, The Emperor of Ocean Park, and its follow-up, New England White. For his third novel, Palace Council, Carter takes on the era of Watergate, using a mysterious conspiracy as a backdrop for an exploration of Richard Nixon. Carter appears at the Regulator at 7 p.m. to read from and sign copies of Palace Council. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 286-2700. —Zack Smith

Laurie Notaro
McIntyre's Fine BooksThe Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia and Laser Hair Removal is a mouthful of a title, but that's because Laurie Notaro has a mouthful to say. Her true-life essays are long, tangent filled and laugh-out-loud hilarious. And after her previous books, including The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club and We Thought You Would Be Prettier, we certainly shouldn't expect her to go simplistic on us (a la Katherine Hepburn's memoir, Me). Hear the mouthful for yourself at McIntyre's Books at 7 p.m. —Jessica Fuller
