Do yourselves a favor and check out this show. Tonight, the Ottobar plays host to two noteworthy bands.
Here We Go Magic deliver a mesmerizing brand of folk, their catalog full of growers ready-made for stargazing, drowning in melodies possessed of a mystical, shimmering quality and mastermind Luke Temple’s by turns lofty and earthy-warm vocals.
But Titus Andronicus is likely to be the highlight for the night. Their music rips along like a happy dervish, an infectious offspring full of shoegaze, garage, punk and pop that can easily feel flat or contrived when listening to a recording. Those reservations should be effectively lifted, if the buzz around their live show is to be believed.
Doors at 8PM, show at 9PM, $10 cover.
