Not only is this week’s column here a day earlier than usual, but I’m rolling out two recommendations – one that isn’t local, and another that is.
Tomorrow night, join me for WHY? at the Mohawk! They’ve been one of my favorite bands for over a decade, and yet this will be my first time seeing them in a non-festival setting. Here’s hoping they play all the songs. By the way, even if you haven’t been a fan as along as me, you should still go because the band puts on a good show and their latest album, Moh Llean, is a rad one.
Tickets are $15. Eskimeaux are set to open.
On Saturday, go see locals Growl at Cheer Up Charlie’s! This one is presented by my radio show, 101X Homegrown, and it’s in celebration of the band’s new album, Won’t You. It’s going to be a blast. Don’t miss it.
Suggested donation at the door. Popper Burns, The Halfways, The Two Lips and Tasi will open.
