Otherwise Engaged: Interpol/White Rabbits

It is an unfortunate reality for the serious concertgoer that on occasion, there will be more than one show on any given night that you really, really, REALLY wanna go to. Since the vast majority of us don't own a time machine, nor have the ability to either clone ourselves or split ourselves in half (or thirds or quarters, depending on the night in question), this tends to present a problem. Difficult decisions are made based on a multitude of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those other shows are still gonna be killer, and I'd like to give a little face time to the shows that, while I can't go myself, are highly recommended all the same.

There are few things I love more than a good bit of moody, melancholy darkness as performed by black-clad, brooding gentlemen. Now that the weather is taking a dive (much like Argentian footballers! Zing!), the need for the cold angularity of certain music becomes even greater. If you’re like me, and get a serious case of the mopes around this time of year, you’re in luck (well, only if you’re in the greater DC metro area). Tonight, over at DAR Constitution Hall, you can get your brood on with a fantastic double bill starring Interpol and White Rabbits. I strongly suggest you consider attending. If I wasn’t an incubus of plague, I’d be there myself.
