Previews of upcoming shows in early July

Here are some previews of bands coming to a club near you. Check them out and find a show or two of your own and tell me about it. There is always a lot going in on this town.

Mantles plays the Comet Ping Pong on Friday, July 5th.
Caustic Casanova and Murder Troy are joined by a couple other bands in what will be a great showcase for local metal bands that feature style and intellect amidst the sonic roar.
Cayucas plays the DC9 on Sunday, July 7th.
Pretty & Nice are at the Iota on Sunday, July 7th.
Mood Rings hits the DC9 on Tuesday, July 9th.
Check out Firehorse at the Iota on Thursday, July 11t.
or stay in the U Street area (like me) and try out Hi Life Wedding at the Velvet Lounge on Thursday, July 11th.
But if you are feeling adventurous, go out to Wolf Trap and check out She & Him also on Thursday, July 11th
And go old-school modern with OMD (who I remember as Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark) who come to the 9:30 Club on Saturday, July 13th.
But if you want an old-school band that sounds as brilliant as ever with a couple of recent albums that nearly equal their almighty trinity of Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, and 154, then do not miss Wire at the Black Cat, on Saturday, July 14th.

Thanks - I like previews of bands that I'm (usually) not familiar with. That Mantles/Title Tracks show has presented me with the dilemma of whether to go to the beach a day or two later than planned. Wire's doing the same thing - come back early or not(?).

I forgot to mention that I am listening to the Mantles on Soundcloud right now.

I plan on being at both of them. Tough choice--maybe the weather will help you decide. But, if you've never seen Wire, they should be on most people's bucket list, especially since they are so good these days.

I saw Wire at the Black Cat a couple years ago, and I'd be glad to see them again. The Mantles should be a good show too, and I like Title Tracks as well.

There seem to be a number of as-yet-under-the-radar bands from the Bay area. The Mantles, as well as Legs, Grass Widow, the Wax Idols, and maybe a couple more that I don't recall at the moment.
