Otherwise Engaged: The Spook School

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.

It always pains me to miss a potentially great show, especially when a Scottish band is involved. Tonight sees Edinburgh's The Spook School bring their scuzzy Scots twee noise pop to town, and I have no doubt it'll be a fantastic show. Just promise me not to rub it in about how great a time you had.
