This week’s shows (9/27/2010-10/3/2010)

Phantogram

Monday (9/27/2010): Tonight’s best bet is probably math-rockers Tera Melos at WonderRoot, with local openers Vegan Coke and Thy Mighty Contract.  If that’s not your thing, there’s also Japanese cult heroes Guitar Wolf at the Drunken Unicorn with Hans Condor and Charges.

Tuesday (9/28/2010): I never really got into either Pedro the Lion or David Bazan‘s solo stuff, but the pretty solid Mynabirds are opening his headlining stop at The Earl.

Wednesday (9/29/2010): Two killer Wednesday night lineups calls for a tough decision.  Electro-rockers Phantogram headline Drunken Unicorn, with support from Josiah Wolf (member of WHY? and brother of bandleader Yoni).  Wolf recently released his first solo album, and it’s not too far removed from the last WHY? album.  It’s a more direct singer-songwriter affair with no lingering traces of hip-hop, but it’s definitely cut from the same cloth.  If you’re not making it out to that show, you should probably be headed to The Earl, where Brazillian tropical garage-rockers Garotas Suecas headline.  Local favorites The Selmanaires and awesome Nashville band Cheap Time open.

Thursday (9/30/2010): Big Boi headlines The Tabernacle.  You may have heard of him.  There’s also some jackass you might have heard about at The Drunken Unicorn.  Local non-jackasses The N.E.C. open that one, along with Jacuzzi Boys (also not jackasses) and Christmas Island (don’t know ’em, so I guess the jury’s still out).

Friday (10/1/2010): I’ll be out of town for the weekend, which is kind of a shame.  There’s a lot going on.  It’s Elephant’s play their final show ever at 529 on Friday, and it’s free.  Deerhunter has a hometown album release show at Variety Playhouse.  And there’s also Ratatat with Dom at the Masquerade.  I’ve heard wildly varying reports about Ratatat’s live show, though, and I’m not so big on the last album.

Saturday (10/2/2010): If I was in town, I would definitely be at The Other Sound Festival in Little Five Points all day.  There’s a bunch of great local bands spread across five stages, including Mermaids, A Fight to the Death, Abby Go Go, Oryx and Crake, and more.  Full lineup is at the end of this post, after the jump.  Saturday night’s also got The Octopus Project, Starfucker, and Spectralux at The Drunken Unicorn, as well as Stars and Wild Nothing at Variety Playhouse.

Sunday (10/3/2010): I’m a longtime fan of The Books, but I’ve never managed to see them live.  My streak will continue this weekend, but anyone who’s in town should go see them at Variety Playhouse with The Black Heart Procession.
