There’s plenty of shows worth paying to get into this week (see below for that list), but there’s no real reason to get all caught up in that when you can see local wonders Bop English and Good Field for FREE at ABGB on Friday. Bang.
If you don’t already know, Bop English is James Petralli (of White Denim), and his debut LP, Constant Bop, is one of my favorite releases of the year. Good Field also recently put out a super solid album titled Future Me. So, that’s two high quality bands playing all sorts of fresh material. Be there. Starts at 9pm.
