islandsMust See (NC): There are a few great shows at the Local 506 this week, but the one you can’t miss happens on Thursday the 24th with the appearance of Montreal royalty, Islands.  Coming off the heels of the release date (tomorrow) of their new album “Vapours” these indie darlings should put on a good night of Canadian music. Show’s at 9, $10 at the door ($8 for non-procrastinators) and DC’s Chain and the Gang open.
sufjanMust See (CLE): If you were lucky enough to snag the quickly sold out tickets, then you already know where you’ll be this Thursday. Sufjan Stevens plays an intimate show at the Beachland Ballroom, which may include music from his new concept piece “The BQE” or some tracks off earlier albums. Either way, it’ll be gorgeous!
wwwb706144_largeMust Hear: September has been bringing out a long list of releases, and this week is no different. Who you need to hear? Some may say it’s Bon Iver‘s new project Volcano Choir, or the Oberst/James/Mogis/Ward collab. Monsters of Folk. Personally, I think you can’t live without grabbing a copy of the new Sea Wolf album “White Water, White Bloom” (but you might as well buy all three).
