Stephen Malkmus + The Jicks (with Janet Weiss!)

A friendly reminder that Stephen Malkmus of Pavement fame plays at Plush tomorrow night. And now Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney is playing the drums in his band. When I saw Malkmus play solo acoustic in Portland this past September, he was in fine form and debuted several new songs that sounded even more intricate than his previous compositions. I bet they'll shine live, too.

I can never predict turnout in Tucson, but the Devotchka show at Plush in December was so crowded that, arriving shortly before the announced starting time, I was unable to see or hear much of anything. It would be wise, in other words, to get there as early as possible, if you want an optimal concert experience. You also may want to purchase your tickets in advance online, but will have to do so before midnight I believe. Here's the link, if you're interested. Since I may not be able to attend the show at the Marquee in Tempe on Wednesday and will definitely not be at the Flagstaff show on Thursday, much to my chagrin, I'll be on my way as soon as my partner returns from visiting her dad in the hospital, the very place I'm headed in a few minutes. We're getting to know Northwest Medical Center very, very well.
