2. METZ w/ White Lung & WL
How Much: $10/$12
When: Thursday, May 2nd – 9pm
Why: Hailing from Toronto, this power rock trio brings it, and they bring it hard. I happened to catch METZ at a pre-Austin Psych Fest show last week and woah! Add Vancouver B.C.’s White Lung and hot damn, y’all are in for a treat–it’s a match made in music heaven!
3. Vietnam w/ Gap Dream & Small Arms
How Much: $10
When: Saturday, May 4th – 9pm
Why: Mexican Summer’s Vietnam teams up with Burger Record’s Gap Dream for one heck of show you’re not going to want to miss! Here’s one of my favorite tracks from Gap Dream: 58th St. Fingers. Highly recommended! Definitely bring some extra dollars to pick up both of these bands’ records.
