Live Around Town This Week

Now that the Fall Fundraising Drive is over here at the station (thanks to everyone who donated), Rocktober marches on with another great week of shows ahead. On Tuesday, everyone’s favorite Gossip plays at Showbox at the Market, and on Wednesday night Das Racist plays there too. Thursday night, Admiral Fallow is at Tractor Tavern. Friday is definitely the busiest night out with a ton of great choices, including the third annual Reykjavik Calling, a free show presented by KEXP with Icelandic artists Apparat Organ Quartet, Sudden Weather Change, and Ásgeir Trausti joining Seattle’s The Redwood Plan and two writers for a night of entertaining (and free) cultural exchange. Also, Dinosaur Jr. and Shearwater at Neptune Theatre, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are at WaMu Theater, the Search for Sugar Man Tour: Ten Year Anniversary of Light in the Attic Records – with Rodriguez, Michael Chapman, Donnie & Joe Emerson, DJ Suspence is at Showbox at the Market, and Com Truise is at Chop Suey. On Saturday, the amazing Bob Dylan and his band are in town at Key Arena. On Sunday, a few good picks are Woods and Night Beats at Barboza, Jeff the Brotherhood is at Crocodile, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock are at Neptune Theatre, and the 2012 Earshot Jazz Festival with Matthew Shipp Trio and Trio X at Seattle Art Museum.
