Tess Brunet at The Honest Pint
Singer-songwriter, guitarist and drummer Tess Brunet brings her lo-fi underground rock to The Pint for a free show on Sunday.
The multi-instrumentalist spent time with the Generationals and Deadboy & the Elephantmen, then formed the solo act Au Ras Au Ras. Now, the Louisiana native reinvents herself under her own name.
Punk legend Henry Rollins is a fan, so check her out as she begins a 2013 tour supporting her new album, The Great Nothing.
Sunday, Jan. 20 - 8 p.m. - Free - The Honest Pint, 35 Patten Pkwy., (423) 468-4192, thehonestpint.com
The Warehouse re-opens in Harrison
It’s been a tough year for The Warehouse, the all-ages venue previously housed in Tim Reid’s Mosaic space on Market Street until a shooting at Club Fathom, which also shared space in the building, over the 2011 Christmas holidays forced the venue’s exit. The Warehouse, which mostly featured Christian metal and rock bands (we enjoyed Stryper there in 2011), took most of 2012 off to seek out alternative space. Founder Casey Whitaker rebounded with Warehouse Cleveland in October 2012, then forged a partnership with Camp Joy in Harrison—a popular skatepark—and launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the new Warehouse Chattanooga. This weekend, the venue re-opens with a grand opening celebration featuring a five-band lineup for $10. An extra five-spot buys entry to the vertical skatepark. We wish them success.
