Want to go see a show this week? Not sure who/what's good?

There's a blob for that.

Let's procrastinate!

#1 Frameworks - The Roxy - Monday - January 25 - 2016 A.D.

Gainesville's Frameworks are so good they make The Roxy the place to be on Monday and they're OPENING (for From Autumn to Ashes). This uber-melodic crushingly hardcore band just released two new songs (on forever excellent Top Shelf Records) and they RULE. Blast them both directly below these complimentary words. And then go see them for ____'s sake!

#2 PWR BTTM + Upset - Bootleg - Tuesday - January 26 - 2016 A.D.

NYC's PWR BTTM play instantly catchy PWR GRG PP at Bootleg on Tuesday. There will be glitter. L.A.'s Upset (featuring one-time members of Best Coast, La Sera, Hole, Vivian Girls) also play this show. They rock the super dope punk that pops and I love them. Go to this show and you will leave in a better mood than when you walked in. BET

#3 Winter - The Echo - Thursday - January 28 - 2016 A.D.

Winter is the excellent pop project of Samira Winter. Oh My Rockness says she plays “easy breezy hazy swirly synth gaze" and there's nothing I love more than quoting me back to myself. See Winter at The Echo on Thursday. You will like this band. And if you don't, that's fine, but I'm not sure things are going to work out between us.

#4 Majical Cloudz - Hollywood Forever Cemetery - Friday - January 29 - 2016 A.D.

Brooding electro popzter duo, Majical Cloudz, play a cemetery on Friday and people are DYING to jet into thiz one.*

(* thiz jood old joke dedicated to all my peepz who have been reading thiz really jreat blob for a few yearz now.)

#5 Jenny Lewis - Church! - Friday/Saturday - January 29/30 - 2016 A.D.

Jenny Lewis celebrates the tenth (!) anniversary of her excellent album “Rabbit Fur Coat" at The Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian on Friday and Saturday (with The Watson Twins and M. Ward). Go to this one if you like going to see good shows. If you like going to bad shows STAY AWAY.

Other notable shows this week = Dr. Dog and Hop Along at The Observatory + Lee Bannon at The Smell + Saul Williams at Amoeba (free) + No Win at Bootleg + Holly Herndon at Teragram Ballroom + The Soft Moon at The Regent + OFF! at Alex's Bar + Julia Holter at Teragram + Kitten at The Fonda + Froth at The Echo + Childbirth at The Smell
