Drat. Here I was all set with a show announcement and then the rug gets pulled from under my feet. It happens, it happens…

Regardless, something tells me this show will be announced sometime soon, so keep watching the social media skies. If it happens, you’ll be lucky to get a ticket.

A show I can tell you about:

Scottish folk-rock band Frightened Rabbit returns to The Slowdown tonight. The band is on the road supporting Painting of a Panic Attack (2016, Atlantic). These guys kind of fell off my radar the last few years. Into It. Over It., a.k.a. Chicago emo dude Evan Thomas Weiss (Triple Crown, Topshelf), opens at 8 p.m. Tix are $18.

Also tonight, Portland indie band Blind Pilot headlines at The Waiting Room, with River Whyless. $16, 9 p.m.

And The Matador is at fabulous O’Leaver’s tonight with Those Dirty Thieves and Jump the Tiger. $5, 9 p.m.
