This week I’m cheating a bit and recommending two shows. Both are at the Mohawk on Friday though, and if you pay for the early one you can stay for the late one. Bam! What a deal. So what are the two shows? The early one is Mos Def (or Yasiin Bey, as he’s currently known) doing all of the now 15-years old Black On Both Sides, and the late show is the always interesting Juan Waters on the inside stage. Get out there and indulge!
By the way, if you’re hungry for something local and bit more underground, here are six shows worth checking out this week.
1) Thursday – Magna Carda with Blue The Misfit, P-Tek, DJ Chorizo Funk at Holy Mountain
2) Friday – Big Bill, Sailor Poon, Basketball Shorts, Popper Burns at The Swan Dive
3) Friday – Wiretree and San Saba County at Lamberts
4) Friday/Saturday – Mellowfest II at Empire Control Room And Garage
5) Saturday – Grape St., John Wesley Coleman, Mitch Frazier and the Vibe at The Swan Dive
6) Saturday – NOTAFEST with Hikes, Young Tongue, Megafauna, Wildcat Apollo, The Human Circuit, Casual Strangers, Borrisokane at the Mohawk
