Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight three shows that catch my eye. Go see a show and remember to turn off your headlights before going into the venue.
Mat Kearney w/Leagues | Wed. 10/5 | The Pageant
Most of us only know of Mat Kearney from his “Nothing Left to Lose” single years back. Time to change that. His new album “Young Love” has been a fun surprise for me this year.
St. Vincent w/Cate Le Bon | Th. 10/6 | Old Rock House
The majesty of Annie Clark meets the intimate stage of the Old Rock House. I get chills thinking of how great her voice will sound in that room.
Beirut w/Laetitia Sader | Sun. 10/9 | The Pageant
Beirut’s sudden rise in popularity came as a surprise to me, especially their headlining slot at Lollapalooza opposite Eminem, but if you’ve listened to The Rip Tide you know it’s deserved. You know Zach Condon and Co. are going to make this a special night.
