Blonde Redhead with Pantha du Prince
@ The Phoenix (410 Sherbourne St.)
$25 adv., doors @ 8
Mysterious, left-field, strangely catchy & hypnotic indie rock by way of shoegaze at its finest, really. Check out the track above: really transcendent stuff, approaching a Loveless sort of vibe (thanks in no small part to the eerie, alluring female vocals). And it's pretty killer double-header: surprise-great-hit-of-the-year Pantha du Prince opens with his beautiful ambient techno. Tickets are still available, surprisingly, so hop to it.
