Zola Jesus & Crystal Antlers at Mohawk

As I mentioned yesterday, this weekend is loaded with bad-ass live music experiences for you to enjoy. I featured Wild Flag at La Zona Rosa yesterday. Today, I want you to pay attention to what's going down at the Mohawk tomorrow night. There's not one but TWO fantastic shows at for you to see tomorrow night. First on the Mohawk's outside stage, the ethereal sounds of Zola Jesus will be wafting passed your eardrums. I'm not a fan of the musician's stage-name but the sounds she produces make me weak in the knees. Her music is haunting, moody and elegant all at once. If you're a fan of atmospheric, electronic sounds and gorgeous female vocals then you better grab some tickets before they're all gone. Zola Jesus is coming off a very successful round of CMJ Festival appearances so the buzz around this show will be deafening by Saturday night and I expect the tickets will be long gone by the time the doors open. Her latest album, Conatus came out early in the month and if you act fast, you vinyl nerds can get yourself a limited edition copy on colored vinyl.

After your collective minds are blown all over the outside area of the Mohawk try to close your, slack-jawed, mouth and head to the inside stage. The psychedelic sounds of Crystal Antlers will fill the intimate, inside space. They're touring in support of their latest full-length LP, Two-Way Mirror. There's an accompanying 10", which MAY be available at the merch booth and if it is, you should grab it because there are only 500 copies. That's called, Son of the Mirror and it can also be acquired as part of a Deluxe Packaging purchase, which I linked above. I should also note that the album is available on clear (translucent) vinyl.
