Otherwise Engaged: Snail Mail + Bonny Doon @ Black Cat, 6/12/18

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 you got tickets to the Snail Mail and Bonny Doon show at the Black Cat, consider yourself VERY lucky indeed. This sold out show features one of the best double bills around lately, between Lindsey Jordan's brilliant, sparkling scuzzed-out noise and Bonny Doon's daydreaming lo-fi delightfulness. The June 12 show really does have me rueing not being able to be in two places at once. If you're going, you're in for all kinds of treats.
