For Monday, head to Showbox Market for some divine hard rock from Texas’ the Sword. They’ll be here introducing us to some new songs from their third album, Warp Riders, which came out in August. I first had to check this band out because I saw they had a song called, “Freya”. Appropriately it’s about a Valkyrie – if you’re into mythology here’s a link about the goddess Freya. And, yes, the song stuns. The show is all ages and doors are early, 7 p.m.
I caught the Like when they opened for Arctic Monkeys last year in Seattle. For this visit they’ll play the Vera Project for another of the evening’s all ages show I recommend. They’re only doing a few dates on the West Coast before heading to Europe, and this one kicks off early too with 7:30 p.m. doors.
