Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight shows next week that catch my eye. Go see a show and bring me your Nyquil so I can kick this cold.
Old Lights / Demon Lover | Off Broadway | Sat. 1/19
Tower Groove Records is putting on a 7″ release show for the two stellar local bands. Ok, you got me, I actually haven’t seen Demon Lover, but the ex-Theodore crew has the stamp of approval from all the cool kids in town.
Bloc Party / IO Echo | The Pageant | Sat. 1/19
The British indie rock band doesn’t come around here often, so be sure to head out to the Pageant this weekend. Also featured is IO Echo, who interestingly was named CMJ’s most stylish bands this past year.
Tristen | The Firebird | Sat. 1/19
Yet another show to make your choosing difficult on Saturday. KDHX is co-sponsoring a show for the Nashville songstress, so you know you can trust their recommendation.
