Otherwise Engaged: Windian Records Annual Showcase

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 variety 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 still highly recommended.

Local label Windian Records has been holding their sort of nose-thumbing in the general direction of Austin, TX party for a few years now, but this year's lineup is especially tasty. Fuzzy DC faves Foul Swoops were part of a great bill last night, and other Fuzzy DC faves Suns of Guns will be doing their thing today. To quoth Windian, it'll be nothing short of the "loudest, sloppiest, beer-fueled rock'n'roll" in the city all weekend. rest assured that if I wasn't up in these mountains having a grand old time, I'd be getting my ass over to the Montserrat House for this weekend of filthy rock nastiness. DC friends, consider your Saturday plans made.
