Show Of The Week

January 24, 2018


There’s a variety of quality shows to pick from this week, but my eyes are largely on Wolf Parade at the Mohawk this Friday.  Last year, the veteran act put out Cry Cry Cry (their first album since 2010), and I not only placed it on my best of 2017 list, but I tagged it as my favorite WP release ever.  I bet that everything from the LP (plus the band’s older, also great tunes) will sound fantastic live at the Mohawk.  Let’s go.

Tix are $25 in advance of the show, $30 the day of.  Charly Bliss will open.
