Otherwise Engaged: Preoccupations + Methyl Ethel

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.

If you're within an hour or two of the DC area, you might want to consider heading to ye olde District of Columbia and making your way to the Rock & Roll Hotel this evening. You see, there's a killer show on the books: Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong) headlines and Methyl Ethel warms things up, and I'm pretty crazy about both of them. Get your fill of smoldering post punk from Preoccupations and blisteringly sunburnt noise from Methyl Ethel. This one's destined to be a special show.
