Mogwai (early show)

with Jack Rose

Granada

Scottish five piece Mogwai formed in 1995 and debuted a year later with the single "Tuner/Lower," released on their own Rock Action label. They've since gone on to develop their distinctive style of apocalyptic noise across four albums, establishing the transcendentally effective quiet-loud/quiet-loud dynamic as their very own and spawning a generation of imitators. Usually tagged a post-rock band because of their slow-build instrumental workouts and the neo-classical majesty of their more ambitious songs, Mogwai are rather a bunch of rockers, drawn to whatever serves their cause. The band's latest full-length "Mr. Beast" was recently unveiled stateside by Matador Records.

you guys are dumb for not billing this the top best bet.

Worth the ticket price, especially if you will be indulging in anything before the show... you know, like a bottle of Cotes du Rhone. Earplugs recommended, just in case.
