Recommendations, as always will be to the right, but here are some video and audio highlights of some of the shows happening this month. I can't catch them all, as I can't be in two places at once, and even one place at once is becoming increasingly challenging. But I WILL see you at some of these.
Tuesday, May 20th yields a bounty of Maximo Park at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel, The Faint at the 9:30 Club, Ex Cult at the DC9, as well as the first Deer Tick show at the Black Cat (sold out, but tickets still available on the 21st).
And if you are not seeing Deer Tick on the 21st, you may visit the Pains of Being Pure of Heart at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel.
Deleted Scenes celebrates their album with their large hometown fan base this Thursday, May 22nd, at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel.
Oumar Konate visits the Tropicalia on Friday, May 23rd.
Manchester Orchestra fills the Fillmore on Tuesday, May 27th.
Bells> is actually greater than and equal to the task of entertaining a crowd at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel on Friday, May 30th.
"No More Water" by BELLS≥ from LUNARCY PICTURES on Vimeo.
And finally, The Warp the Weft was scheduled at the Tree House Lounge but the show is delayed for now. I'll leave the sample up and keep you posted on when the show will happen.
