Otherwise Engaged: Hammer No More The Fingers

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 all y'all DC friends, I certainly don't expect ALL of you to be driving down en masse to the fabulousness at Republic Thursday evening (i.e. Mittenfields & The Snowy Owls). So for those of you that aren't making the drive down to RVA, there's actually quite a bit for you to be getting up to. One of the most highly-recommended such outing is seeing my favorite Carolinian 90s college rock revivalists and all around awesome dudes Hammer No More The Fingers. I've been managed to miss them the past few times they've been in town, which I chalk up to cruel fate. HNMTF sandwiches The Sol Bandits and Make Love And War over at DC9 Thursday, so do plan accordingly.
