Tonight is quite a busy day for shows, between Jonathan Tyler & Northern Lights at Granada Theater this afternoon, Menkena and Romp Almighty at Bryan Street Tavern, and Salim Nourallah and I Love Math (Buttercup as well) at the House of Blue Cambridge Room.
And then of course there's NX35. Most of the attention will be directed towards the free Flaming Lips/Midlake show at the North Texas Fairgrounds. Still, there's one performance at the evening shows that needs to be brought to your attention.
Oso Closo's set at The Boiler Room is reported to be the band's final show. There are still several other shows listed on their MySpace, but I am presuming that all of those dates are unfortunately null and void. I've only seen the band once, and that was over two years ago at the Cottonwood Arts Festival. I've been wanting to see the band again ever since hearing tracks from their latest effort, Today Is Beauty's Birthday. The album showed how much they had grown musically since the last time I saw them perform.
Moral of the story: if you like Oso Closo, or are curious and want to see them for the first time, it's now or never.
