My top highlight this week, without a doubt, is Braids at the Mohawk Saturday night. I am in love with Braids' new record, their old record and the record from Braids-adjacent band Blue Hawaii. I won't accuse Braids' music of being readily-accessible and I know that their sound isn't for everyone, which is why I encourage you to not go to this show if you're not interested in actually listening to the music. I, your fellow patrons, and your ancestors all thank you for your consideration.

Lest we forget in all of this hullabaloo, FunFunFun Fest is just around the corner. A month away to be a bit more precise. If you don't have tickets yet, then you need to get yourself to the nearest record shop and buy a ticket at the counter. Throughout the month of October, if you buy a ticket to FFFFest at a local record shop, the fest will buy you a fest artist's record. Yes, you read that correctly. Buy a ticket, get a free record. It's like that now. I'm pretty sure this is true in other major Texas cities but that's y'all's business.
Also, even though it is ACL Festival-related I wanted to give one more plug for Savages at the Parish Friday night.
