Shows This Week!

Trying to break-up the once-a-month Month Highlights piece into weekly segments, in order to receive a better consistency of completion.  We'll see.  This week is an easy one…

Tuesday: Blitzen Trapper
The Beachland Ballroom /  $14 ~ $17
Looking forward to these guys coming back again.  Blitzen Trapper has a well reviewed new album with American Goldwing, and will put on a  great show, with the likes of Dawes and The Belle Brigade just confirming you should go early.

Fletcher by subpop

Wednesday: Dr. Dog
Beachland Ballroom / $16 ~ $18
Philadephia's "oddball pop" darlings, Dr. Dog will be performing with Quite Life and Wax Fang.  All these bands should make for a great indie pop-rock night.

Dr. Dog - Stranger by Dr Dog

Thursday: Cold War Kids (SOLD OUT)
Beachland Ballroom / sorry about your luck

Friday: Holy Ghost!
Grog Shop /  $12 ~ $14
Holy Ghost! is a great electronic duo out of NYC, making a name with some great remixes and went on to release a great full-length album.  Jessica 6 and their slick version of "nu-disco" should be a great elctro-dance warm-up act.

Saturday: The War on Drugs
Beachland Tavern / $10 ~ $12
The War on Drugs is a notable pop/rock band out of Philadelphia. You may remember them as the former home of Kurt Vile, but their new stuff is good and this should be a great show.  Purling Hiss & Carter Tanton are opening.
