Every night has at least one top notch offering, so prepare to over-extend yourself this week. And with next weekend being a three-day affair, why not over-extend a bit. Starting the week on a high note, Monday is a cinch with Fakers, The Happy Hollows, The Pretty Flowers and Western Lows all on the same bill at The Echo and Amoeba Music has an in-store with Family Of The Year on Tuesday.
Two hot shows on Wednesday pull one in different directions: Takashi Miyaki and Northern American at The Satellite, and The Electric West at Harvard & Stone. Takashi Miyaki headline an exciting show at The Satellite with Northern American, which is also an album release for supporting band Holland Belle.
Winter will raise audience awareness with a show at The Roxy on Thursday, and Friday brings a sterling edition of First Friday w/ Mary & Eli at Pehrspace featuring Bloody Death Skull. My Feed Your Head show brings Wages to Lot 1 on Saturday.
