Recommended Shows This Week (8/5 - 8/11)

Monday: Smith Westerns/Wampire @ The Riot Room

Both recommended shows for this week are on Monday night and are good headliners paired with good openers. Chicago's Smith Westerns are continuing to gain notoriety with their third (and best) album, Soft Will. The band is fantastic live so don't miss this one. Portland duo Wampire will open the show with indie rock clearly influenced by the likes of Ariel Pink.

Monday: Naam/Radkey @ Czar Bar

Also on Monday, Brooklyn psyche/drone rockers Naam will be at Czar Bar. With songs that can exceed seven minutes regularly and sometimes in the fifteen minute range, Naam could be the second coming of Black Sabbath. Local favorites Radkey will not only be opening this show, but will be opening most of Naam's nationwide tour dates in August. Congrats to them!
