Live Around Town This Week


Rocktober charges on with another great week of incredibly diverse music lined up. On Monday, there’s a free show at Sonic Boom Records with one of NYC’s latest pop projects – New Villager; they open the following day at Neumo’s for a much anticipated show with Metronomy. Also on Tuesday, Cymbals Eat Guitars play the Crocodile, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks are at the Neptune, and the Benefit for Susie Tennant is at the Tractor. Wednesday is the probably the best night of the week for a potentially life-altering show with choices between Battles at the Neptune, The Drums at the Crocodile, or Boris at Neumo’s. On Thursday, St. Vincent is at the Neptune, and Nick Lowe begins the first of two nights at the Triple Door. Friday heats up with Gang Gang Dance at Neumo’s and Mason Jennings at the Neptune.  The weekend has a great selection of loud and local shows for you to check out. On Saturday there’s Black Nite Crash and The Purrs at the Sunset, Hotels and Spanish For 100 at the High Dive, and Rocky Votolato and Matt Pond PA at Neumo’s. On Sunday, there’s Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls at Neumo’s and the SMC Co-opooloza feat. Caspar Babypants, Recess Monkey, Ravenna Woods, The Moondoggies at Fisher Pavillion. If you can’t find something in that list, we may need to check your pulse. Here’s the schedule for the rest of the week:

    Mongrel Blood (members of Murder City Devils) took the place of Big Crux on that bill with Victory and Associates (no ampersand, from CA) and Police Teeth.
