Saturday, Nov. 17, 7:30–9:30 p.m.
MIT a cappella group Resonance is holding its annual winter concert with music (obviously), skits, and fun. On campus and free — what could be easier?
Wednesday, Nov. 21
The Middle East (Upstairs), 18+, $9
Quebecois and francophone pop rockers infectiously play out in support of their catchy 2006 album Trompe-l’oeil. Those sticking around for Thanksgiving break should make it out to this show for a night of guaranteed fun.
Saturday, Nov. 24
Dinosaur Jr. *
Paradise Rock Club, 18+, $20
Though they now ally more with the first half of their name than the last, who can resist the unbeatable combo of J Mascis and Lou Barlow together again, playing as though they can stand one another?
Sunday, Nov. 25
Sondre Lerche (with Dan Wilson)
Paradise Rock Club, 18+, $16.50
Some prefer this Norwegian musician’s rock numbers to his acoustic tunes, but, like it or not, Lerche’s playing unplugged.
Thursday, Nov. 29
Dragons of Zynth (with Holy Fuck) *
The Middle East (Upstairs), 18+, $9adv/$10dos
Check out The Tech’s (glowing) review of DOZ at http://www-tech.mit.edu/V127/N33/cdreviews.html. Electro-pop openers Holy Fuck may have a NSFW title, but their dark disco tracks are delectable.
