Taking the week off / Cloud Nothings tonight!
There didn’t seem to be a whole lot of rock shows going on this week, but there is one taking place tonight that I’d highly recommend: Cloud Nothings (with Protomartyr and John June Year — the latter is a band based out of Clinton, IA) at Gabe’s (19+, $12-$15, show starts at 8:30 PM).
I’ll unfortunately be out of town tonight, but I do enjoy Cloud Nothings’ music. Their previous album, “Attack on Memory”, had sounds and energy reminiscent of Nirvana’s “In Utero” (probably as a result of Steve Albini producing both of them), and I like the tracks I’ve heard off their new release, “Here and Nowhere Else”. Should be a good one tonight.
