When Music Attacks! March
There are a lot of shows to see and love in March. The winter thaw is slowly beginning.
Cursive with John Congleton & The Nighty Night, Beach Slang
Fri 3/06 @ Black Cat
Doors 10pm / $20 / Tickets
I was mildly obsessed with this band during my early high school years. Well basically any band on the Saddle Creek Records label had my love. I once had an “Ugly Organ” t-shirt that I’ve lost but the CD is still secure on my CD tower. Who doesn’t remember that album cover?
The album is being re-released with a tour to support. From the Black Cat website: “Expect muscular guitars, pounding drums, driving bass, and most importantly – a live show that is not to be missed.”
Of Montreal with Yonatan Gat

I saw this band open for The Civil Wars (bless that duo, may they reunite soon) at the Lincoln Theater about three years ago and I was immediately hooked.

This show is now sold out. I emailed ya’ll in November to give you a heads up. Only a few folks were wise enough to jump on it.
They played the 9:30 Club in June as the opener for Tune-Yards and they made life blissful. Here’s NPR’s recording of the full concert.
‘Coffee‘ should win you over
And ‘Play It Right‘ song / video will have you wanting to dance with strangers

That time in October 2013 that he and I had a tweet exchange. No big deal. (Huge deal.)

Chill wave excellence. “A born crooner with a nostalgic-yet-bittersweet tone to his voice, Lewis’ music is an amalgamation of everything great about rock’n’ roll. Great melodies, great lyrics, great influences.”
‘Turn Me Up’
