Shows to Catch This Weekend (and tonight)

As I mentioned in my previous post, it is summer festival season in Europe, which means a lot of Bloggy favs aren't even on this continent right now HOWEVER, that doesn't mean you've got nothing to do this weekend. The first thing I want to mention is actually happening tonight. The Glitch Mob is making their return to Austin at La Zona Rosa tonight. Tickets should be available at the door and make sure you get there in time to catch the uber-buzzy support-act, Com Truise.

Friday night is all about Emo's inside stage for some blues-psychedelic freak-out fun with Smoke & Feathers. They'll be playing the support slot for Dax Riggs. You can grab some, reasonably-priced, tickets if you wish but you could probably risk it and pay at the door if you prefer.

Saturday has a few good options, depending on what suits your fancy. As I mentioned in my previous posting, White Denim always put on a great show and they'll be playing at Antone's with TV Torso. As of right now you can still get tickets but this one will, most likely, sell-out.

If White Denim's not for you, that's ok, there are THREE other viable options. They are somewhat lesser-known artists but they are noteworthy nonetheless. You've got Cass McCombs playing Lambert's. Or, you could check out the latest incarnation of The Blow at Emo's. Last but not least, you could head on over to the Mohawk to catch John Maus with Puro Instinct.

So, there you have it, plenty of things to spend your money on this weekend. Don't forget, drinking in driving is LAME and always bring condoms and earplugs. Have fun out there kids!
