Rocktober’s been very good to us, so help us usher it out in style, dignity and grace with a special performance by the National Sympho -- Whaaaaaa-huh-huh? TO HELL WITH THAT - we’re going meteoric from now til Halloween, starting tonight with Miike Snow at the 9:30 Club. You’ll get a bunch of guys sharing one name, an entrancing idea for a last-minute costume - just add roadkill antlers to that rabbit suit your aunt got you last Christmas - and enough Scandi-pop and synthesizers to fill the couch section of IKEA, all in one sweatastithon of a night.
Miike Snow uses everything from barking dogs to marching bands to give their tracks a fullness uniquely their own, and they are rolling in tonight for not one, but two shows. Will they be bringing the Grambling State Marching Band and a pack of wild dingoes? These Swedes are nuts, so it’s entirely possible -- but even if they can’t swing it due to space limitations and health code regulations for the cupcake kitchen, you can guaran-damn-tee that MS will have enough sound packed into their keyboards to make you think you’re seeing a marching band. And dingoes.
We’ve already been to, like, 50 shows in 24 days, so step it up with us as we grind out the rest of the month, and let’s see you shaking your sprocket tonight - Tickets for the early show with Nikki & the Dove are sold out (but ever hear of Craigslist?) - luckily for you there are still a few tickets available for the 10:30 show HERE.
