Live Around Town This Week

We’re exhausted but had an amazing Labor Day weekend at Bumbershoot! As expected, the music just keeps getting better and the schedule keeps getting busier. Tuesday starts a 2-night series at the Paramount with Fleet Foxes and The Walkmen. On Thursday we’ve got The Horrors at Neumo’s, Friday has The Antlers at Neptune, Sleepy Sun at Nectar, and Archers of Loaf and Constant Lovers at Neumo’s. On Saturday, the concert calendar really heats up with Bobby Bare Jr at Sunset, Iron & Wine at Paramount, The B-52’s at Chateau St. Michelle, Aqueduct and BOAT at Columbia City Theatre, Handsome Furs at Neumo’s, and We Are Augustines at Neptune Theatre.  Sunday’s winds down with Glass Candy at Neumo’s and a great show at Columbia City with Chatham County Line.
