Otherwise Engaged: Maps & Atlases @ Rock & Roll Hotel, 6/19/18

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.

Maps & Atlases just released their first record in six long years, Lightlessness Is Nothing New, and are currently touring this new long player. Their show rolls into DC this coming Tuesday (6/19) at the Rock & Roll Hotel, and I'm bummed I won't be able to check it out. I'll be in class, but if you're free and clear, may I strongly suggest you head to the Hotel for a good time Tuesday? Check out "Ringing Bell" and "Fall Apart" below for a taste of the shimmying sounds you might get to hear up close and personal.
