ACL is one again set to reign supreme this weekend, but if you need something smaller, there’s still plenty of shows going down outside of the fest that will surely be great. I’m all about two album release parties that are happening – Grape St. at Hotel Vegas on Friday, Sweet Talk at the same venue the following night – but mostly I have my eyes on The Sword at the Mohawk on Saturday. I love them to death, but if I’m honest, their new album, High Country, has yet to fully grow on me, and I’m super curious to see if the songs play better live. Hopefully so!
CONTEST: If you’d like to win a pair of guest list spots for the show, just leave a comment, send me an email or yell at me – @SideOneTrackOne – on Twitter. I’ll pick a winner on Friday.
