RJD2 with Pigeon John tonight

Here’s a show you should go to because, well, I can’t. This is the last time I miss a show for work (foreshadowing … semi-major announcement pending).

RJD2’s new record, The Third Hand, got panned in Pitchfork. And I can’t say I necessarily disagree. Still, that doesn’t diminish the great work he’s previously done. I think I could whittle down The Third Hand to about five or so tracks worth keeping.

Then there’s Pigeon John. Well, I’m a big fan after seeing him live last fall. (Of course, it helps that he contributed to my hip-hop feature.)

They’re playing the Clubhouse in Tempe.

Also, Modest Mouse is at Mesa Amphitheatre.

And in a strange coincidence, Andy Rourke, formerly of the Smiths, is in town for a guest DJ spot at the Rogue. Word has it Johnny Marr could head over after the Modest Mouse show to make it half of a Smiths reunion. Except, you know, they’ll be twiddling with their iPods and CDs.
