Show Of The Week

March 22, 2017

Oh my.  Who wants to go to a show the week after SXSW?  Probably none of you, but that doesn’t change the fact that there are still some good ones happening.  My favorite of the bunch is My Education’s party at Sidewinder on Saturday.  The instrumental post-rock act will actually being doing two sets – one that’s nothing but fan favorites, and another that’s comprised of their new album, Schipol.  Sounds neat.  Be there.

Tix are $12.  The rest of the lineup is great as well.  It includes Megafauna, The Clouds Are Ghosts, Knifight, Total Unicorn, Bright Like The Sun, The Angelus and A Sundae Drive.
