Otherwise Engaged: Diet Cig @ Rock & Roll Hotel, 2/28/18

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 I wasn't inevitably going to be doing frantic last-minute packing for a transatlantic flight on Wednesday night, I'm pretty sure I'd be at the Rock & Roll Hotel to see Diet Cig. This NYC outfit brings together fresh-faced, super cute sweetness with good, solid scuzzy fuzz - a combination that's pleasing enough on record and which I'm sure sounds mighty fine and then some in person. If you're around Wednesday, I strongly encourage you to hit the Hotel and check out Diet Cig for yourself.
