Local Listens

The Pomonas, local indie pop darlings whose My Space describes their sound as "A KU basketball fan taking a piss in Tin Pan Alley," will play their final show tomorrow night in Lawrence. Openers Approach and Burly Q Girly Crew. (Jackpot Saloon, $5-7, 10 p.m.) Hey Andy Gassaway, remember me? We used to write for The University Daily Kansan together... Now you're moving to Seattle and breaking up the band. Well, you and all those other guys, too.

Also tomorrow, up-and-comers Fourth of July play the Eighth Street Taproom with Matt Suggs. ($2, 10 p.m.) Thanks for the heads up, Chloe!

KC-area free weekly The Pitch is holding its 2007 Music Awards Show Aug. 10 at the Uptown. Vote for your picks here. Winners will be announced at the show and in the Aug. 16 edition of the Pitch. I've got my eye on the "New Acts" category, with Baby Birds vs. The New Republic vs. Rich Boys.
