Show Of The Week

September 27, 2017


There’s a couple of big shows that I’m really excited about later this week.  One is The War On Drugs on Saturday (that’s night 1 of 2 at Stubb’s), and then SZA on Sunday at Emo’s.  Both acts have put out really great albums this year, and I can’t wait to hear those songs live.  Since you can’t go to either though because they’re SOLD OUT, here’s two other shows I’m really pumped for.  This week is packed!

Tonight is Jay Som at Sidewinder.  Her 2017 release, Everybody Works, is a damn good pop album that I listen to all the time.  Tix will be $15 at the door.  Stef Chura and Madeline Kenny will open.

On Friday it’s Otis The Destroyer’s album release show at Hotel Vegas.  The dudes are one of my favorite local bands, and I’m ready to get my hands on their debut LP, Keep Bashing.  This one is presented by my radio show, 101X Homegrown.  Openers are Slomo Drags, Honeyrude and Dr. Joe.
