This Weekend: There's Too Much Going On For It To Rain!

The Acorn

  • River to River presents A Place to Bury Strangers w/ King Khan and the Shrines and Black Acid: From Flavorpill
  • All hail King Khan. The recent Vice Records signee and his nine-piece psychedelic garage-soul band storm into the Seaport tonight like whirling dervishes of rock, brandishing organs, horns, and attitudes aplenty. The Montreal (via Berlin) group sounds more like it hails from Memphis, tempering a classic rock/soul sound with a cheeky garage swagger reminiscent of acts like the Animals, 13 Floor Elevators, and any number of Nuggets-era obscurities. Led by consummate frontman Khan, the Shrines kick open the gate for the custom-fuzzed tones of apocalyptic shoegazers A Place to Bury Strangers

  • Cold War Kids Play Prospect Park
  • Unleashing “cave-stomp drums, barroom piano and chiming post-punk guitars,” (Rolling Stone) COLD WAR KIDS eschew preciousness for grit. Live, they’re all smoldering energy and raw power. Joining them are local favorites ELVIS PERKINS IN DEARLAND with their dream-like folk rock “drenched in equal parts sunshine and cloudy grey skies,” (Drowned in Sound) and the tuneful but hard hitting SAM CHAMPION, “an absolute force of nature.” (Sterogum)
