Concerts I'm Attending Soon

Title pretty much says it all
Pale Horses

Playing the Black Cat in D.C. Still pretty bummed that I missed their 10-year anniversary tour for Catch for Us the Foxes when it came by my neck of the woods, but I'll content myself with a few deep cuts, especially amidst newer material as solid as what Pale Horses and Ten Stories had to offer.
2The Menzingers
Rented World

Co-headlining with mwY. I actually saw these guys with letlive. and Taking Back Sunday not too long ago. A few strange bedfellows on the bill, there, but I wasn't surprised in the slightest that both openers definitely stole that show. Also, not for nothing, but Adam Lazzara looks a little worse for wear.
3Pianos Become the Teeth
Keep You

Opening for the above pair. I got extremely excited when I actually heard one of these guys' new songs on the radio the other day. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have been surprised, given A) the new, softer sound and B) the fact that it was a local college station, but still. Cool. And I've yet to see them put on anything less than an absolutely flooring show.

Also opening. This band deserves a lot more attention on this site. Also, I guess, outside of this site.

Playing the Metro Gallery in Baltimore. Pretty excited for this one, but also nervous, as I've convinced my girlfriend to go based largely on the fact that she likes this album. As for the earlier material, well...we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, I suppose. And I might be walking home across it alone that night.
6Emma Ruth Rundle
Some Heavy Ocean

Opening for Alcest. I've seen Marriages live before, which was damn good, so I'm confident she'll hold her own.
8Circa Survive

Playing Ram's Head Live in Baltimore. I was actually a bit disappointed when I saw Circa a few years ago. Not a lot of energy, but I think it was deep in the back-half of their tour for Violent Waves, so I'm just (tentatively) chalking it up to poor timing and less-than-top-shelf material. Hopefully, the combo of Juturna and the stellar Decensus will make for a much more vitalized show.
Everybody Is Going to Heaven

Opening for Circa. Their latest was something of a step down, in my opinion, but I've had albums grow on me before after seeing them in a live context (see: #2). Plus, their first is still one of my go-tos, which must count for something.
10Rx Bandits
Gemini, Her Majesty

Also opening. Never really got into these guys, to be honest. Ska/prog sounds...interesting, though. And if it means overweight dudes in Rush shirts skanking, well, then, that might be entertaining enough in its own right...
11We Were Promised Jetpacks

Another Metro Gallery show. Actually sort of a bargaining chip tying back into #5, with the all-important caveat that I actually legitimately enjoy WWPJ, so I definitely cheated during the negotiation procedures. But she doesn't read Sputnik, so shhhhhh! What *is* weird is, there aren't any openers listed. Could be because it's still about a full month off, and Metro seems to like to pull from the local pool quite a bit, but we shall see. Even if it's just them, should be a fun night of some Scottish mope-rock. And I do mean that endearingly.
