The Daily Cardinal showed us some love today by publishing an article highlighting what our February has in store. Today we’ve got more excellent February shows to announce, ensuring that whether you’re a Valentine’s Day hater or embracer (that doesn’t quite rhyme, but we’ll go with it), it’s going to be a good month. Minnesota’s Night Moves will hit the Sett on February 18th. They just signed with Domino Records, which is home to amazing acts like Arctic Monkeys, Cass McCombs, Dirty Projectors and Panda Bear, so you know they’re going to be a band to watch. Another band doing the Midwest proud is Milwaukee’s Junipar Tar, who just had their Daytrotter session posted. They’ll also be here on February 18th at Der Rathskeller.
Whoa there, kids. Don’t think that we’re one-month wonders over here. The action keeps rolling into March, April, and beyond, here. As announced a few weeks ago, Doomtree will be here on March 9th. Well, the party doesn’t stop after their performance, as Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger will spin tracks in our DMF Afterparty. We’ve got New Yorkers Caveman on April 13th, whose debut LP CoCo Beware has gotten a ton of buzz, which probably had something to do with them getting signed to a little label called Fat Possum last month. On April 27th, Blackbird Blackbird, an electronic/dream pop act that was so nice they named it twice, will make the trip out from their hometown of Oakland (after making a stop at SXSW, of course) to make pleasing sounds for your ears.
That’s not even all, so check out the listings below for more concerts and more details on those listed above. Go ahead, don’t be shy.
