Live Music Options: 11/8/10 - 11/14/10


Made it out a few times last week. I caught White Denim for the first time. Those guys are tight musicians - changing time signatures on a dime. If they ever get on the right tour, they'll blow up. Their crowd is very passionate about them. On Thursday I made it out for Le Switch's record release party at Spaceland. Good crowd and the band sounded great. On Friday I hit Spaceland for a third time for Trans Am. I love when they tease a few bars of some totally recognizable song (like Pink Floyd or Iron Maiden) before launching into their own genre hopping progginess.

Monday 11/8/10
