1. Soft Tags CD Release w/ Massive Moth & The Reservations
Where: Doug Fir
How Much: $8 (+21)
When: Wednesday, July 6th – 9pm
Why: This is the release show for the highly anticipated third full-length record, Suit of Lights. The lo-fi folk/psych group is truly a DIY collective–recording, mixing, and manufacturing their own work using mostly analog gear. Their recent EP, Seafoam Green, ran them a whopping $1.72. Get there early to catch friends Massive Moth and The Reservations!

2. Paul Collins’ Beat w/ Garbo’s Daughter & King Louie One Man Band
Where: Slabtown
How Much: $8 (+21)
When: Friday, July 8th – 9pm
Why: Cult-favorite Paul Collins got his start fronting the legendary power-pop trio The Nerves. They toured with The Ramones and when Blondie covered their song, “Hanging On The Telephone” it turned into hit and has since been covered by acts like Cat Power and Davila 666. Grab a friend and get your socks thoroughly rocked—this show will not disappoint.
