Show Of The Week

October 19, 2016


To be honest, the show that I’m most excited about this week is Taylor Swift on Saturday during the F1 USGP out at Circuit of the Americas.  I’m going to go sing my head off, folks.  Seriously.  Anyhow, I realize that spectacle isn’t quite a “walk-up” kind of gig, so here’s a more accessible pick – Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong) at the Mohawk on Friday.  The band’s 2016 self titled album has a warped-Interpol-sound going for it, and it’s been a favorite of mine over the last few months.  Methyl Ethyl are set to open.  Go indulge.
