Ted Leo and Doug Gillard playing BrooklynVegan-presented show at the Rock Shop

If you haven’t been to the Rock Shop in Brooklyn yet, well, you’re missing out. Apart from having a great selection of beers, an outdoor deck and some really amazing Sliders, it also has a killer sound system and a great intimate space to see bands big and small. I think capacity for the venue is around 150, but they’re consistently able to book acts that would normally play much bigger spaces.

Which brings me to this announcement: Ted Leo (who we recently caught play an amazing show with the Pharmacists) and Doug Gillard (formerly of Guided By Voices) will play at the Rock Shop on August 27, and it will be presented by BrooklynVegan and BV’s comedy writer Klaus Kinski. For $12, it’s a win-win situation. Broadcaster is also on the bill and comedian Dave Hill will be hosting the night. Tickets will go on sale today at 5pm, so grab one while you can!
