Otherwise Engaged: Boogarins

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.

Brazil's Boogarins makes some of the best psych rock around, regardless of the hemisphere. The Austin Psych Fest/Levitation alums are in DC tonight over at DC9, and if you're at all inclined to hear some modern psychedelia you'll probably want to be in attendance. These road warriors are constantly touring, but who knows when they'll be back in our part of the world. Get out there and make your night, and theirs, a really beautiful one.
