Out of Town 9/11-9/18 


thursday 11

Mother Falcon

An orchestral rock group from Austin, Tex., Mother Falcon has 20 collaborative members playing strings, horns, guitars, and percussion. The band produced perhaps one of the best tiny desk concerts ever with its dozens of members packed into the minuscule space of NPR's offices vehemently yelling, stomping and I assume, blowing out the eardrums of every employee within earshot. I also assume the same effect will take hold at the intimate Mississippi Studios. After the band is set up, I'm not even sure there will be room for an audience. Kan Wakan and Melville open. 8 pm. Mississippi Studios. $12.

thursday 11-sunday 21

Time-Based Art Festival

PICA's 12th annual T:BA Festival is the kind of event where you can see things you'd never dreamed of and may never witness again. Incorporating the performance, musical and visual arts, the fest attracts some of the most innovative and original artists from across the country. The post-modern smorgasbord spans 10 days and dozens of events, from Jesse Sugarman's "We Build Excitement" (Sept. 18), exploring the life cycle of the auto industry to Pepper Pepper's "Critical Mascara" (Sept. 13), a participatory "post-realness drag ball" competition inspired by Paris is Burning. Various times, locations and prices. Details at pica.org/programs/tba-festival

friday 12


Slug, the conscious rapper behind Atmosphere, is responsible for some of the catchiest and most accessible hip-hop tunes to come out of Minneapolis, ever. Known for his sensitive and politically conscious rhymes matched with Top-40 sensibility (see the album, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold) Slug is considered the master of the hip-hop allegory. 7 pm. Roseland. $25.


friday 12

REO Speedwagon

What is lost in the constant classic rock radio play of their hits is exactly what a quality band REO Speedwagon is. Formed as a folk-rock band in the late 60s, they cut their musical teeth by covering contemporary artists, like latter-day Beatles' songs and The Doors' "Light My Fire," eventually incorporating the more jazzy elements of those songs into their own style. Commercial success came a decade later—after 10 years spent constantly touring—when they expanded their folk sensibilities into arena-sized anthems. Sure, the songs may be a bit tired and familiar, but like seeing a twinkle in your parents' eyes or a bounce in your grandparents' steps, that youthful zeal is still on display at REO Speedwagon's very fun live shows. 7 pm. Cuthbert Amphitheater. $28.50 - $43.50.
