This is a busy week in the Phoenix/Valley area. It started Sunday night with Peter Bjorn and John at Marquee Theatre. (In brief, I was more impressed than I thought I would be, but there’s no effing way he whistled that part.)
Now, a look at the rest of the week:
Monday, Sept. 17: Oakley Hall at Rhythm Room. Stream I’ll Follow You at Merge Records.
Tuesday, Sept. 18: VHS or Beta at Rhythm Room with Walter Meego and Get Down! To Brass Tacks, one of the more intriguing local acts.
Wednesday, Sept. 19: Pinback with OM at Marquee Theatre.
Thursday, Sept. 20: The Besnard Lakes with Starvin Hungry at Modified.
(You did pick up the new Besnard Lakes EP Casino Nanaimo on eMusic, right?)
Friday, Sept. 21: The New Pornographers with Lavender Diamond at Rialto Theatre in Tucson. (Road trip?)
Friday, Sept. 21: Arctic Monkeys with Voxtrot at Marquee Theatre.
