Live Music Options: 8/2/10 - 8/8/10

White Arrows Do the Monday Night Residency at Spaceland
I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed seeing Phosphorescent last Tuesday at the Troubadour. The band was incredibly tight, so refreshing to see musicians with command over their instruments. It was compelling throughout (at first they played new songs with the studio arrangement, but also did extended jams, and even stripped down acoustic versions of older songs). If you're a fan of the records at all you need to see them on this tour.
