Tonight (Wednesday) there is a good one happening over at The Tractor Tavern. 

At the end of 2017 local band Maltby released a five-track self-titled EP of gorgeous songs. Now that part about their music being really good is certainly important, but there is another angle to this whole thing.

Yes, the band Tents will be coming up from Portland to release their new album which is a big deal, and Matt Bishop playing solo is always amazing (plus I've just been missing Hey Marseilles lately). So yeah, there are plenty of good reasons to be at this show. 

But the thing that makes this a little bit different is that it is all happening within the lens of a fictional late night TV show. The fictional late night show will be hosted by a fictional late-night host named "Jonan O'Brien (played by local actor Joshua Williamson) and the entire venue is going to be prepped to look like the set of a late-night show. 

I don't really know what to think about all of this which is a pretty good reason to head down to the Tractor and investigate. Won't you join me?
