Otherwise Engaged: Deerhunter/Crystal Stilts

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.

As some of you know, now that it's college football season, some of my Saturday evenings are going to be spoken for (Roll Tide). This evening, that's kind of a good thing, as there are several good shows between which I'd seriously stress out over having to choose between. One such show is the serious dual threat of quirky, psyched and weirded out every which way noise going down at the 9:30 Club, courtesy of Deerhunter and Crystal Stilts. It's a heck of a bill and I have no doubts about how good that show will be. Folks, you might should get to this one.
