Marnie Stern

Guitar goddess for $10? I'm really surprised she is playing such a small venue for so little. I would vote, "can't miss."

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti (w/Os Mutantes)

Is Ariel Pink THE definition of a hipster band? What, you've never heard of him, you are like, so totally lame. What a strange pairing, seeing as how Os Mutantes are older than most hipsters' grandparents.

Prediction #1: There will be no chanting, howling, or clapping. At the conclusion of each track, the crowd will simply flash a glance and a head nod of approval towards each other.

Prediction #2: There will be at least twelve collisions between hipsters who have yet to figure out sunglasses don't work well in dark venues.

Prediction #3: No fun will be had, unless someone shows up wearing a flannel.

I should say, Ariel Pink sold out the Doug Fir a couple months ago, so if you really want to catch this, you might want to purchase early.
