Welcome Power Trip Home.
Recently, a psychic bus driver in Scotland was fired for refusing to stop and pickup some of the kids he was charged with taking to school. His reasoning? His clairvoyance told him that “something bad” was going to happen to him if he stopped.
What he didn't tell reporters after his termination, though, is whether he also had a vision of himself being fired that day.
Predicting the future can be a bit tricky sometimes.
That being said, we feel pretty confident in our prediction that you're going to have a good bit of fun later tonight. Of course, you don't need a psychic to tell you that when you've got us looking out for you.
Wolfgang Gartner & Tommy Trash at Granada Theater
If you asked EDM extraordinaire Wolfgang Gartner how he came up with his catchy, turnt up beats, he'd respond with a wide spectrum from where he gains his inspiration. Sometimes, it's a small bit of a tune he heard on an elevator. Other times, it's a clank from the pan while cooking dinner. Or maybe it's just something he just knows is going to set off a festival crowd of 20,000-plus. Though tonight's crowd won't quite be that big, there's something to be said for a guy whose high-energy sets can make club shows feel like festival sets and vice versa. — Jordyn Walters
Rosemary's Baby at Magnolia Theater
Magnolia is at it again: For this week's installment of its weekly Big Movie series, the theater will be showing the 1968 classic horror flick Rosemary's Baby. If you've seen it, you know how intense it can be — and how it only gets better with every view. If you haven't seen it, we'll sum it up shortly: It's a Roman Polanski film with Mia Farrow that involves cults, satanic rituals, a not-so-innocent baby and an ending that you really just have to see for yourself. — JW
Perma at Good Records
Say Anything and Eisley fans rejoice! This evening, married rockers Max Bemis and Sherri Dupree will play a free show at our local record shop Good Records. These two have taken spare time from their own bands to join forces and create Perma and their firswt proper LP, Two of a Crime, which comes out today. This is big news for fans of either band — or both! — and since it's at Good, there will be a meet-and-greet afterwards. Nab a good shot for your Instagram feed or just shower the happy couple with well-deserved gifts. They just had a baby, after all. — JW
Power Trip and Cleric at Taqueria Pedritos
The local hardcore heroes in Power Trip are finally home from a long stretch of touring, but they come bearing some bad news: The band's touring van struck a deer somewhere in the middle Pennsylvania and bit the big one. The van, we mean. Honestly, we're not sure yet whatever became of the deer, but we're guessing things didn't end too well for that guy, either. Anyway, the point is this: Power Trip's back in tow, and its members are in need of a little cheering up. Hence this taqueria-hosted show alongside the band's local partners in grime in Cleric. — Pete Freedman
Timeflies, Chiddy Bang at House of Blues
Earlier this summer, Brooklyn hip-hop duo Timeflies was featured on a BuzzFeed list entitled “19 Reasons Timeflies Needs To Be Your New Favorite Band.” To save you the perils of visiting that site, we'll give you the takeaways: Cal Shapiro and Rob “Rez” Resnick are both quite physically attractive, Rez began producing at age 12 and Shapiro does that whole Astronautalis-freestyle-from-audience-suggestions bit that we all love so much. Whatever their appeal, it seems to be working in the group's favor, as the twosome managed to beat Taylor Swift out of the No. 1 albums slot on iTunes even before inking its record deal. — Cory Graves
The Lonely Forest at Three Links
Four LPs and seven years in to The Lonely Forest's career, you pretty much know what you're going to get with this four-piece. John Van Deusen's lilting vocals are always there, right out front. So, too, are the band's lush melodies, which wrap around Van Deusen's vocals much like a warm scarf — the kind you'd certainly need if ever you were to visit the band's coastal hometown of Anacortes, Washington. Perhaps less obvious is the anti-technological tone that runs like an undercurrent through the band's catalog; the tongue-in-cheek message put forth by the band's very literal 2010 “Turn Off This Song and Go Outside” single no longer seems so tongue-in-cheek in the wake of the release of the band's newest single, “Warm/Happy,” which lyrically focuses on shunning the electronic world in favor of human-on-human interaction. Normally, it's wrong to stereotype citizens of the Pacific Northwest as tree huggers. Here, though, the glove fits. — PF
