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 have to tell y'all, the idea of the Black Cat being packed to the rafters full of revelers going absolutely nuts over Crystal Castles makes me pretty bummed that I won't be around to get to the show. The 10/8 show in question is sold out, but the resourceful among you will do what you need to do to get in there and enjoy the diabolical, snarling electro thrash goodness right there with the rest of the cool kids.
