Otherwise Engaged: The Brian Jonestown Massacre

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.

All that really needs to be said is that The Brian Jonestown Massacre is one of the best live bands out there. Led by Anton Newcombe, this ever-evolving psych outfit offers up some of the tightest, and flat out best, psychedelic noise you're going to hear. DC, there's really nothing better, so get out to the 9:30 Club tonight and see it for yourselves.

  1. I was hoping you'd be there and kept an eye out for you but there were so many people, I had no idea whether you were around or not! Was sorry not to see you
