Nightlands and Efterklang

People of Austin, hear me now! This could be your last chance to attend a show at the Mohawk before it's overrun by people who are drinking Lone Star because it's quaint! Efterklang have traveled all the way from Denmark to perform for you on the Mohawk's outside stage. Tickets are still available and will only set you back $12. I know this is a tough time of year to head out to a show since you'll be taking time off work and you'll be seeing SO much music next week. However, it's a good chance for you to stretch out your liver and break in some new concert shoes. It's also a good chance to make friends with the bartenders, tip big, become Facebook friends and hopefully they'll remember you and hook it up next week. Don't you wish there was some sort of secret handshake or wink that would let people know you live here year round so they could charge you regular price?

Tomorrow night's Efterklang show is most definitely a, don't miss the opening act, situation. Playing the support slot right before the Danes is, War on Drugs spin-off project, Nightlands. The Nightlands project is a, somewhat creepy, take on R&B music through an indie-rock filter...sort of. Does that sound confusing? Confusing or not, I love this trend of indie-boys doing their own spin on R&B and I credit Active Child. This show starts early, which means you can expect Nightlands to begin shortly after 8pm.
