This week has been weird here in Baltimore, and I look forward to giving thanks. I'll be taking a break from the interwebs after today until next week, and you should probably go ahead and do the same (after reading this of course).
I've got a lot of very exciting news to share when I get back, so look forward to that. Until then, here are a few things to do this coming weekend that are worth noting.
Saturday night, Floristree hosts a big one. Future Islands, Thank You, and Weekends will all be at the H&H Building on the 28th of November. Future Islands have been super busy as of late, with a remix EP on the way, and recently getting signed to Thrill Jockey. Much more to come on these guys soon, some of which you'll exclusively find here.
Weekends have been equally busy, and I recently got the opportunity to put together a podcast recording session with them. However this was no ordinary performance, as it was a collaboration with Weekends and the Copycat Theatre... involving costumes of all varieties. Look for video and audio from this session at Bmore Musically Informed in the coming weeks.
In addition to this monster of a show Saturday night, the Ottobar's got a good one too. This one might be more for those still in turkey comatose, as it features some pretty heady folk pop. Bowerbirds come to town, with local newcomers Secret Mountains and Man & Dog opening the bill. Man & Dog recently dropped an EP which has just made it's way into my rotation, and I'll hopefully have some words on that soon.
