Top 5 shows of the weekend

Greetings. Let’s start off by reveling in Run the Jewel’s performance on Colbert this week (with TV On the Radio as their backing band, no less). Good, now we can move on with our weekend plans. Because “American” football season has just started, I tried to catch some actual football too and saw NYCF vs Toronto last night. Sure, the quality in the MLS isn’t great, but at least they kick the ball with their feet. I would draw an analogy with Indian food here vs in the UK; it’s bearable if you’re desperate, but it’s probably below the average standard I would get back home. That’s a minor gripe however, because we’re here to talk shows, where the reverse is true. So enjoy the Indian summer and catch some live music.

Top 5 shows of the weekend

The week started off pretty well for shows and as usual we’ve got some great options with which to end it. Maybe just like all that snow and slush, our troubles can melt away, in our case with the aid of a gig or five! Before I start the list I’d like to note that you should get out to Cloud City (85 North 1st Street) as the RIP DIY exhibit ends on the 15th of March. More information can be found here.
