Boston: Shows [Week of 05.08.06]
05.08: Phoenix/La Rocca @ T.T. The Bears
Irish group La Rocca will release their debut full-length next month on the eclectic yet always on point Dangerbird Records. This band has been criminally overlooked, so go to the show and buy their records.
Audio: "Sing Song Sung"
05.09: Hail Social/Army Of Me/The Casual Lean @ Great Scott
05.10: The Concretes/New Buffalo @ The Paradise
05.11: Pretty Girls Make Graves/Giant Drag/The Joggers @ Middle East Down
PGMG has moved from being an extension of the Murder City Devils' fury to releasing a difficult second to album to this year's expansive and generally impressive Elan Vital. This bill is perhaps the most solid I've seen in awhile, so avoid the hipster tendency to show up late.
Audio: "The Nocturnal House"
05.11: Kid 606 @ T.T. The Bears
