Live Wire Music Hall recently closed their River Street location, but the Robertson clan is now operating a booking and promotion business under the name Live Wire Productions. Click here for a short photo retrospective of some great Live Wire shows.
And they have a big all-ages show tonight — Saturday, Feb. 9 — upstairs at Dub’s Pub at 225 West River St. Dub’s is part of the Live Oak Restaurant Group that also includes Tubby’s and several other popular spots.
From the Facebook invitation for tonight’s gig:
The Mantras’ fourth studio release, Jambands Ruined My Life, is a snapshot of a band on the rise. Recorded almost a year ago, Jambands Ruined My Life captures The Mantras in the middle of their growth from the regional ‘party band’ that North Carolina and the Southeast have grown to love into the progressive powerhouse that is touring the country today. Jambands Ruined My Life shows The Mantras’ ability to play with funk and jazz improvisation, live electronica, Middle Eastern, and progressive rock and blend it all seamlessly into the band’s funky, energetic, and confident sound.

There’s a $7 cover for tonight’s show.
