Last night was good- King's of Leon and LCD Soundsystem- but tonight is looking to be even better with a whole grab bag of options:
UK hyped machine Arctic Monkeys and Be Your Own Pet will be at the Showbox (read what Travis Ritter has to say about BYOP's rowdy, towheaded whisp of a fronwoman).
!!! headline Neumo's along with Social Registry's Telepathe in all thier electro-tribal glory.
The 5th Annual Laptop Battle goes down at Chop Suey, of which Rachel says in her Short List blurb, "They really are an assorted bunch this year, from the drummer phenom/producer KJ Sawka to the dark noize textures made by Syphilis Sauna to the electro-house-rooted Dave Pezzner, and that’s the tip of the iceberg. Contestants have a scant five minutes for their sets, and are judged on originality, performance, and crowd response."
The Can't See's John Atkins celebrates his art opening at Spencer Moody's new shop of curiosities and housewares plundered from the estate sales of those who have passed on, theAnne Bonny.
What else do you crazy kids have going on tonight?
