Every Tuesday, Listen Up! brings you songs of bands and performers coming through town in the next week. Listen up, then go check them out live.
We’re big fans of the psychedelic craziness that is Of Montreal, but before you purchase scalped tickets, you may want to consider a better way of spending your money: That same night, the Rock and Roll Hotel is hosting the SAFE & Sound benefit concert. Former Georgie James member Laura Burhenn, Olivia & the Housemates, Lode Runner, and the Spiritual Machine will all be performing, and proceeds from the concert will benefit Survivors and Advocates for Empowerment (SAFE). Great music for a good cause? Not even Of Montreal can beat that.
The last band on this week’s playlist is San Diego’s Delta Spirit. The band’s been in the area before (playing at both DC9 and Iota), and its first single, “Trashcan,” has been making the rounds on Internet radio stations like WOXY for a while now. This time around, the guys bring their raucous, percussion-heavy pop tunes to the Rock and Roll Hotel for a show on Sunday.
