Rather than name a show or two each week, I’ve decided to give you guys all my recommendations for October at once.
These are all bands that I can attest to being well worth your time and interest. If I mentioned the opening bands, it’s because they are also very good and worth checking out. There are tons of other great shows this month hosted by r5 Productions that I haven’t listed here.
I recently saw the Rosebuds open for Bon Iver at the Tower Theatre. They were absolutely awesome live and won me over right away, which is pretty hard to do when you’re there to see a band as intriguing and amazing as Bon Iver. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Thrice six or seven times, and can honestly say that they are one of the few bands that may actually be better live. O’brother, Thrice’s opener, is one of the best heavy bands out there you haven’t heard of yet. I’ve also seen Kevin Devine several times and will be attending the North Star Bar show. Kevin Devine is an incredibly talented songwriter, and I believe he’s one of the most underrated artists around right now. The other bands and artists I mentioned I haven’t seen live, but recommend nonetheless.
So, do you have any recommendations to add? If you do, leave a comment.
