Plenty of post-Labor Day show options with lo-fi southern trio Futurebirds at Rickshaw Stop tonight, the previously profiled Ty Segall at Mezzanine Friday and rising local favorites Magic Bullets at Bottom of the Hill Saturday.
Our featured act this week is French Miami, who play Milk Friday night. Easily one of our favorite local acts, French Miami cranks out dance-friendly post-punk anthems that you just can't help but chant along with. Their 2008 self-titled debut is one of our most overplayed albums in recent memory, and the live renditions of tracks from their long awaited follow up point to 2010 being the true break out year for the trio (assuming it sees the light of day this year). With 1/3rd of the band now Brooklyn-based (seems to be a trend), this is a rare chance to catch the band in action -- we highly recommend catching these guys while you can.
Several other show options this week including Detroit chillers Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. at Milk Wednesday, Americana-tinged locals Buxter Hoot'n at Rickshaw Stop Thursday, the previously profiled Grass Widow at the Cyclone Warehouse Friday and psych-inspired garage trio Sic Alps at Oakland's New Parish Saturday -- as always be sure to check the full showlist.
