Show Of The Week

March 1, 2017


I can’t claim to have ever found myself particularly attached to any of Deafheaven’s album, but I do really like them live and I think you should see them at the Mohawk tomorrow.  The band puts out an enormous wall of sound, and it’s rad to watch and just sort of get lost in it.  Also, the San Marcos-product This Will Destroy You are set as direct support, and they’re one of my favorite instrumental acts.  That makes for two great reasons to be there!  Do it.

Tix are $18.  Emily Ruth Rundle will open the evening.
