Otherwise Engaged: Catholic Spray

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.

I'm in Nashville for a few days, and it's not often you will hear me bemoan being in Music City. However, my being here means that I will miss a show this very evening at Velvet Lounge that could possibly burn the place to the ground in a fiery blaze of unholy glory. Catholic Spray, a decidedly un-Paris band from Paris (they claim "you're gonna shit a reverb"), is bringing their filthy, foaming at the mouth, scuzzed out lo-fi trash and roll to DC. Things could get messy, and I'm super bummed to miss it. Je suis très triste!
