Shows this weekend: The Bots, Motel Beds and more

Posted By on Fri, Sep 12, 2014 at 2:12 PM

In this week's issue, we were able to cover a bunch of exciting stuff happening this weekend — chiefly, the weekendlong Thrival Festival, featuring Moby, Portugal. The Man, Talib Kweli and a host of others. There are a few shows we didn't get to, as space didn't permit, so as we sometimes do, let's run down some other options:

The Bots
  • The Bots

Friday, Sept. 12: At The Smiling Moose, The Bots headline the early show (6 p.m.); the two brothers from L.A. play garage punk and are quickly on the rise nationally. Elsewhere, Dead Rider (ex-U.S. Maple) plays Howlers (9 p.m.), and Reptar headlines at Club Cafe (8 p.m. doors).

The Motel Beds
  • The Motel Beds

Sat., Sept. 13: During the day, the HughShows series at Eide's in the Strip continues with City Steps, The Nox Boys and Grand Piano (1 p.m.). And later that night at the Smiling Moose (8 p.m.), locals Action Camp and Misra Records artists The Motel Beds, who appear on The World Cafe this coming Monday, share the headlining slot, with Bryan Vamp and Them Labs (which features occasional CP freelancer Seth Pfannenschmidt) opening.

Sun., Sept. 14: In addition to the Sunday Thrival lineup and the Club Cafe show with Sean Rowe, Sunday night sees blues-rock up-and-comers The End Men coming to Howlers ( 9 p.m.).
