Inc at the Mohawk Tomorrow

Inc.'s No World is one of my favorite records of the year. I have listened to all or parts of it more than I have listened to almost anything else this calendar year. Obviously, it clicked with me. I love the mood of the album. I love its sensuality, its self-consciousness and its soulfulness. The grooves are minimal but perfectly R&B. The XX meets The Roots.

I saw Inc. perform at SXSW but it was about 2:00pm at the Fader Fort, not the ideal setting to experience a performance from this particular band. That's why, when I heard that Inc. was scheduled to play the Mohawk I was very excited. I was a bit apprehensive when I thought it was an outside show because I knew it would be hard for people to stop talking long enough for me to hear the performance we all paid for. Luckily, tomorrow night's Inc. performance will actually take place inside. If you haven't bought yourself a $10 ticket yet, now would be a good time to go ahead and do that. Go ahead, I can wait.

I've heard people say that they don't like the Mohawk's inside stage and I know it has its down-sides but as far as small performance spaces in Austin go, it's one of the best if not the best. Maybe you wouldn't regret missing this show but maybe you would. Regardless, you should buy No World and you should tell other people to listen to Inc because they're good, this record is great and tomorrow night's performance has little-to-no buzz, which is fucking ridiculous.
