Giving you the music a day early:
Swedish rock band Blindside brings their Shivering Hearts Tour to Rev Room, touring in support of their newest album With Shivering Hearts We Wait, a collection of polished post-hardcore and alternative rock, including the first single “Our Love Saves Us.” The opening acts are Minnesota rock band Write This Down and Swedish screamo act Intohimo. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. with tickets for the all-ages show $15 in advance and $17 day of.
It’s a party at Stickyz with a visit from Taco & Da Mofos, a Memphis act known for their dance-inducing mixture of rock and reggae, along with a Southern rap, Latin, punk and ska. As Taco & Da Mofos like to say: Their musical background with a touch of good vibes creates one of the dopiest party band in the nation. And yes, Taco is the name of the guy leading this band of merry musicmakers. The opening act is the dance-y garage rock of Booyah! Dad (formerly Pilot Whale), kicking off the music at 9 p.m. with a $6 cover for the 21-and-up show. All military, police and fire personnel get in free with credentials.
