Otherwise Engaged: Preoccupations @ Rock & Roll Hotel, 4/24/18

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.

Of all the times I've wanted to be able to clone myself in order to be at more than one show at a time...due to a prior engagement I can't see Preoccupations at the Rock & Roll Hotel tomorrow night, and it's a dagger to my gig-going heart, y'all. The band is on the road touring newest record New Material, and I am absolutely positive that their informed, intelligent visceral post punk noise will be resplendent up close and in person. If you're in the DC area and free tomorrow night, please test this theory and go see for yourself.
