Recommended Shows This Week (6/3 - 6/9)

Tuesday: The xx @ The Uptown

If I wasn't already planning on attending the Baroness show at the Granada in Lawrence, I'd be at The xx show in KC. After not really digging the hype of their debut album, I feel in love with their most recent effort. I have no idea what to expect from their live shows, but the venue should be full of awkward hipsters.

Tuesday: Baroness/Coliseum @ The Granada

What I think will be the show of the week will be Tuesday at The Granada in Lawrence. Baroness are returning to the stage after a vicious bus wreck that caused half the band to quit. This will be my third time seeing Baroness and they are a behemoth of a live band, so don't miss this one!

Wednesday: Vandaveer @ Czar Bar

With all of the lame neo-folk bands like The Lumineers and Of Monsters & Men and the like, it's refreshing to hear something that actually sounds authentic. Vandaveer are touring behind the fantastic album of murder ballads Oh, Willie, Please... and if there is a just deity up there, they should be huge soon so check them out on Wednesday in KC.

Friday: CHVRCHES @ The Granada

I'm hesitant about bands that become huge before putting out a full length album, but the latest buzz band CHVRCHES do have some great songs out already, so give them a chance. This could be a show sells out before Friday, so if you're wanting to go I suggest grabbing tickets soon!

Sunday: The Psychedelic Furs @ The Midland

I don't hide my un-ironic love for all of the classic 80's bands and included in that list are The Psychedelic Furs. I saw them a few years back in KC and they put on a great show. Tickets for this are available for less than ten bucks so you have no excuses not to go.
