For the video release of "God, Country, Grave," Mutts are performing at this Lakeview dive bar with two “intimate sets.”
Wednesday, December 5th: A Night Out With Moniker Records at Empty Bottle (9 PM, 21+, $8 adv/$10 dos)
The local label has put together a night of some of its finest national talent, including ONO (backed by John Bellows), Lazy, Stacian, Jealousy, and the Hecks. Check out our full preview here.
Thursday, December 6th: Azita at Hideout (9 PM, 21+, $8)
This is the release show for Azita’s Year, out a couple weeks ago on Drag City. The songs were originally written for a musical in 2006. She is now backed by a fuller band that help her expand an already dynamic range.
Friday, December 7th: Videotape at Township (9 PM, 21+, $5 adv/$7 dos)
Local shoegaze / dream-pop group released the unrelenting This Is Disconnect a few months ago, and can fully back it up live.
Saturday, December 8th: Spirit Family Reunion at Schubas (10 PM, 21+, $8 adv/$10 dos)
I had the pleasure of catching these guys in Brooklyn earlier this year. High energy folk rock / Americana that I’d say gives Dastardly a run for their money. Al Scorch says you should see them too.
Sunday, December 9th: Foxygen at Saki / Metro (3 PM, AA, FREE / 6:30 PM, AA, $23)
I’ve already seen glam-rockers Foxygen on a few lists of artists to blow up in 2013. Now you’ve got two chances to catch 'em in one day. In the afternoon, see a more intimate performance at Saki along with Angel Olsen. Then see the band go all-out opening for of Montreal at the Metro that night.
Monday, December 10th: Showyousuck, Super Minotaur at Schubas (8 PM, 18+, $8 adv/$10 dos)
It’d be pretty difficult to come up with a more unlikely pair of groups, but here we are. Local emcee Showyousuck is preparing to drop the third installment of One Man Pizza Party. Ruby Hornet's got the full details here. On the other side of the spectrum, Super Minotaur plays sloppy, lo-fi garage rock. Let's see what the two can do together.
