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.
Local fans of wild, wooly, and wonderfully weird psychedelic shenanigans had better think about heading over to the Rock & Roll Hotel this very evening to see Aussies POND do what they do. And that would be to make a whole lot of hallucinatory sonic hijinks. Go forth and trip out, friends.
