Mogwai+The Twilight Sad
Supporting last year's subdued-by-Mogwai-standards The Hawk Is Howlingthe one with the plump, self-satisfied bald eagle on the cover (how droll)the taciturn, post-rock Scots are headlining three Brooklyn dates (again, how droll). Regardless of where they're playing, though, Mogwai always deliver a riveting set that wholly depends on their trademark musical contrasts (pin-drop lows and heavy-metal LOUDS), and it's always sort of fascinating to see just how they make it all come together. With fellow Glaswegians the Twilight Sad.
