Did anyone else hit up Sufjan's concert Monday night? Did anyone else have a brain explosion with all the awesomeness that ensued? I am still reeling from it. Favorites of the night for me were Vesuvius, Chicago (yea, ya gotta admit it) and of course, without saying, the 30 min epic-ness of Impossible Soul. Sigh...
Alright with that said, here we are with another slew of delicious tunage for November's viewing and listening pleasure. Thank you November. I've been reluctant to let go of October and Halloween seeing as last month's concert roundup was nothing short of bliss but alas...if there is turkey involved I will make my way happily into November.
All the way from the UK comes Kate Nash the teenage sensation that wowed those Brits with her folk ballads clear back in 2007. Now she is grown up (along with her language) and traveling the world.

She won't write you a love song but she will write lots and lots and lots of piano infused tunes worth of a pop-filled afternoon. Honestly I will probably go for Holly Conlan mostly. I dig her stuff.
Credited with starting the instrumental hip-hop movement, this DJ was made for dancing, or in my case for working out to. But at 30 bones, I might not make it this year... I mean he is good but not Sufjan good :)
Freelance Whales Kilby Court November 27th 7 PM $12
Introduced to me earlier this year, Freelance Whales is just what I need on a cold November day. Banjo, maybe some accordian, and of course warm and toasty well composed songs. Groove to their debut LP Weathervanes before the show. I dig Hannah and Broken Horse.
Anything I missed?
