Saturday's City Paper Pick

Tis the season, once again.  The season for eye patches, rum drinks, and naughty jokes about what Captain Hook does with his infamous appendage.  That’s right folks, PIRATE FEST 2010 is almost upon us!  As in previous years, this year’s one day festival is a daunting bill of ten big time local acts from a wide range of genres.

This year’s show is marked by the headlining appearance of Jacob and I.  Columbia’s own Google success story is riding high in this new year bringing all of the instrumental goodness and fun spirit that‘s made them a fan favorite.  Other top-tier performers include Athens, GA favorites, Venice is Sinking as well as Columbia post-punkers, Calculator.

Versus the Robot, Tunguska, Wicked Tim, You Me and Us, Dance Commander, Kill Anties, and We Sail at Dawn round out this year’s cast of pirate performers.  From the list of varied talents, its easy to see that this year’s lineup has something for everyone.  And as always, dressing as a buccaneer is certainly encouraged.  Catch all of the festivities at the New Brookland Tavern on February 27th.  Be there or be walking the plank.                                                     -Samantha Hoy
