Otherwise Engaged: Love Inks

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.

Now that it's nice (well, ok, sweltering is not really nice, but work with me here) out, things start really happening in this fair city. I can't tell you the number of times I've gotten excited about a show, only to find that I'm already going to another show I'm also excited about. If only I could time travel...but I digress. Love Inks is in town tonight, touring their fine selves around and representing Austin good and proper. Head out to the Red Palace tonight to see the band dubbed "stripped down desert-pop" by NME (and they also nabbed #14 on NME's list of Best New Bands).
