Twin Shadow / Niki and the Dove This Weekend

There are so many great shows coming up in the next couple of weeks, I wasn't sure whether to write one long post featuring all of the highlights or several short ones. I went with the latter. I am really excited to see Twin Shadow again at the Mohawk this weekend. Originally, the band was going to play Friday night only but that show sold-out so fast they added another show Saturday night. If you didn't get tickets to Friday night's show, you're in luck because there are still a few left for the Saturday night show. I'd act fast if I were you though because this show will sell-out at any moment. Also, if you haven't listened to Twin Shadow's latest record, Confess I recommend you do so.

For those of you who are financially challenged, you can try to get into Waterloo Records for Twin Shadow's free in-store performance at 5:30pm on Saturday. However, if you don't have tickets to either Mohawk show you're going to miss one of my favorite bands from SXSW 2012 in, Niki and the Dove. Their album Instinct is personal, ethereal, music with electronic textures and lush melodies. Niki is an electro-pop Stevie Nicks for a new generation and their live set is not to be missed.
