Bands I'm Seeing Within The Next Month-ish

Your life sucks
1Mount Eerie
Clear Moon

Tomorrow night. Should be a nice way to kick off this clusterfuck. The two people opening for him are my sister's exboyfriend and then a human kitten AKA one of the most attractive guys in the city. cool.
2Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

On the 22nd. It's a sold out show but I got DA HOOKUPS Y'ALL. They have a song named after my city, nuff said. Also a band called Staves is opening for them.
S/T Cassette

A few other local bands that are playing shows prior to the Sled Island festival notably: Desolace, Keotaos, fffffff, Udopia, Shearing Pinx, Random Cuts, Cable Knits, Party Cat, Ringleader, Gnats, Coalspur, Watcher, Shahman, Mouse Ear, Roanoke, Tel Fyr, Mahria, Lovers, Damages, Animal Faces, Bandera
4And So I Watch You From Afar

They're playing our annual Sled Island festival. You might have to scrape my brains from the ceiling when this is over.

Sled Island. This show is going to be packed because of all the buzz over the last year. Oh well. Worth it.
Boris At Last - Feedbacker

Sled Island. Just got announced this morning, to replace Grimes' tour cancellation. I couldn't be happier, I thought I'd lost the opportunity to see them forever when they played an 18+ show with Red Sparrowes when I wasn't 18.
7Shabazz Palaces
Black Up

Sled Island. Another announcement from this morning. Hopefully they'll have new material too... This is going to rule pretty hard.
8The Dudes
Blood Guts Bruises Cuts

Sled Island. Hometown heroes. I've seen these guys a million times but they still rule... Every time.
9Russian Circles

Sled Island. One of the best post-rock acts to see live. EVER
10Tim Hecker
Harmony in Ultraviolet

Sled Island. Never thought this would happen, ever.
11Yamantaka // Sonic Titan

Sled Island. Only recently got into these guys/gals... Reminds me of a heavier version of Glasser
Thunder Pit

Sled Island. I'll go see these guys if I have time. You'll probably hear about them at some point. One of the best generic metalcore bands to come out in a while.
13Andrew W.K.
I Get Wet

Sled Island. I swear this dude has played this festival every year so we'll see.
14The Antlers

Sled Island. I kind of hate this band but I have a feeling I'll get dragged to their show somehow
Glemno Essi

Sled Island. Blood Brothers-esque band from Edmonton. Incredibly entertaining to watch.
16Goose Hut
throw it at your dads house

Sled Island. really hipster and really fun
17Indian Handcrafts
Indian Handcrafts

Sled Island. Another band on the Sargent House label. Never got into their recordings but I think they'd be really good live.
18Archers of Loaf
Icky Mettle

Sled Island. I have a feeling I'm too young to like this band. Still, if I have an opening to see them, I will
19Larry and His Flask
All That We Know

Sled Island. Never heard of this band but they sound like this: so I'm pretty down to see them
The Reminder

Sled Island. I don't care that much for her anymore. She's headlining though, maybe.

Sled Island. Prog punk legends. Not a big fan of them anymore but if I have time I'll definitely check them out. Bands not mentioned: Nu Sensae and This City Rejects.... I have BIG fear of missing out on all this shit this year.
