It’s Monday, so that means there’s a free show at the Mothlight. This week’s show should be killer with The Messthetics headlining. The Messthetics are a new trio featuring Fugazi’s rhtythm section of Brendan Canty and Joe Lally, along with guitarist Anthony Pirog. So needless to say, this will rock. Fitting opener Shane Parish will provide the icing on the cake.

It only gets better with the incredible Circuit des Yeux at The Mothlight on Tuesday night. Slightly, reminiscent of Tim Buckley, singer-songwriter Haley Fohr aka Circuit des Yeux may only be scratching the surface but she’s already one of the most singular talents around with her off-kilter song structures and unforgettable voice. Not to be overlooked both supporting acts, Marisa Anderson and Nathan Bowles Trio are definitely worth catching. Don’t miss this one!

Tuesday night is really just an incredible night. Aside from Circuit des Yeux, there’s at least two other incredible shows that night.

So if Circuit des Yeux is a little too weird for your tastes, great Canadian folk act The Weather Station will be at Ambrose West.

The big indie rock show of the week comes Thursday at The Orange Peel with the double bill of Black Angels and The Black Lips. Where the Black Angels set an atmosphere of haunted psychedelia, garage-rockers the Black Lips shows are notorious for their complete madness. Maybe they’ve toned it down a little over the years, but expect a wild performance from the Black Lips.
