Tonight! Cold War Kids/Alec Ounsworth/Flashy Python, Digit Dealer, The Necks, Dinosaur Feathers/The Carnivores/Shark?
So what if the Cold War Kids show at MHOW is sold out? These are desperate times, so there's gotta be scalpers willing to negotiate. Plus you wouldn't want to miss openers Alec Ounsworth (he of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and Flashy Python. But if you can't get your foot in the door, just sulk the few blocks over to Glasslands Gallery, where you can get belligerently drunk listening to dance-pop duo Digit Dealer, who describe their origins thusly: "Not that long ago, an art-school student in Brooklyn met an Indian kid from Queens at a party. Now they record CDs and play music together for drunk friends at house parties (and real places sometimes, too)." If that doesn't sound like a hell of a good time, the Necks bring their minimalist jazz to the Issue Project Room, while Dinosaur Feathers share their synthesized surfer-pop/African-drumming concoctions at the Cake Shop with the Carnivores and Shark? in tow.
