Otherwise Engaged: Dead Meadow @ Black Cat, 3/23/18

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.

This one stings a little, I've got to say. I've seen Dead Meadow live before, and it's been incredible. The Jason Simon-led psych stalwarts (20 years and counting!) are currently touring latest release The Nothing They Need, and are stopping at the Black Cat this very Friday evening. Alas and alack, I'm heading out of town to an undisclosed location/going off the grid, so there is no Dead Meadow in my Friday night future. However, I strongly encourage one and all to venture to the Black Cat for a heck of a show. You'll be in for a mighty fine time indeed, and in truth it'd be hard to kick off the weekend any finer.
