Has everyone recovered from their Noise Pop hangover? No? Cool. Though this week saw the tail end of NP2K15 slowly making its exit like a particularly long Caribou outro, the weekend seems poised for energy and oddity. Onward!
Friday: Just when you thought the odd gaggle of furries at that aforementioned Caribou show had surpassed your faux zoo quota, TRAVISWILD returns with one of his Animal Parties. Everything about the DJ is ferocious. Hell, his “business partner” is a dinosaur. Shake of the seriousness of actually going to shows to critique them like the discerning ear that you are and unwind in pure animalistic movement.
What: TRAVISWILD at Hawthorne
When: Friday, March 6th; doors: , show:
Cost: Free RSVP tickets if you’re there before 10:30pm and one of the first 100 guests or $15; purchase tickets here.
Saturday: Rapper and activist B Dolan is the nice slice of serious artistry you’d need after recovering from a long night of listening to “animal house” or whatever it is TRAVISWILD calls his tunes. Flying high off the release of his third House of Bees mixtape, B Dolan is at the top of his game, mixing spoken word with acoustic instruments and driving industrial beats, essentially crafting his own parallel dimension. B Dolan’s world, while at times just as bleak as our’s, certainly sounds better. Give it a listen.
What: B. Dolan at Thee Parkside
When: Saturday, March 7th; doors: 9pm
Where: Thee Parkside: 1600 17th St
Cost: $10; purchase tickets here.
Sunday: Another chill way to end the week. Sunday is the day of rest and essentially the day of chill and Hey Rosetta! knows that. They’re just energetic enough to get you dancing at a mid-tempo hipster shuffle while discussing the finer points of their ultra-catchy fourth LP, Second Sight; “Dream” being one of the finest.
What: Hey Rosetta! at Brick and Mortar
When: Sunday, March 8th; doors: 7pm, show: 8pm
Where: Brick and Mortar: 1710 Mission St
Cost: $7 in advance, $10 at the door; purchase tickets .
