Rage-Quit This Week with The Twilight Sad.
Thanksgiving is next week, so chances are you're catching up on a lot of work before you go out of town or before you spend your time off sitting in your underwear, watching the game.
Either way, you have things to do!
But you can't slow down! It's another music night! The Deftones and the Twilight Sad will be stopping by, and you also have a nice pick of cheap (and free!) local shows. Other than that, there's a Vinyl Preservation Society meet-up and a performance of Burying Our Father: A Biblical Debacle.
Free Music Wednesdays at Haileys
Free music is definitely something everyone can get behind. Well, free music with the slight caveat that you have to be over 21 for the whole “free” thing to come into play (for 18-to 21-year-olds it's $5). Tonight, enjoy music from Horse Thief, The Terrestrials, Henry and the Invisibles and Whiskey Shivers.
Deftones at Palladium
One of the most resilient alt-metal bands of the past two decades, the Deftones just recently put out their seventh album, Koi No Yokon. Widely cited as influenced by a number of popular contemporary acts such as Muse and System of a Down, it makes sense that these guys would stick around.
Burying Our Father: A Biblical Debacle at the Undermain Theatre
If you have a general sense of religious knowledge, this play will probably be pretty entertaining to you. Fred Curchack and Laura Jorgensen explore the similarities between the Abrahamic religions with comedic and irreverent flair. This is probably not something you should take your evangelical cousin to.
The Twilight Sad at Club Dada
It seems there have been a lot of good shoegaze and post-rock bands coming out of the UK in the past few years, and they can probably thank The Twilight Sad for paving the way for them in the West. But, honestly, is there a sadder band name than “The Twilight Sad?” Too many emotions in those two words.
Vinyl Preservation Society Meeting at Barley House
The theme is “I can't believe I own this!”, which means that you can probably expect people to show up with their most ridiculous records. If nobody brings that “Disco Duck” record, you are welcome to rage-quit your life.
$5 Folk at the Crown and Harp
Just what this town needs! All the folk your ears can eat for five dollars — provided your ears get their fill in four acts. Austin's Marmalakes, Clint Niosi, Yallwells and Jacob Metcalf should be enough to get more than your money's worth.
