Mike Adams

-Mike Adams at His Honest Weight

Anybody remember the Midtown song at the end of Forget What You Know that somehow, their label agreed to let them release even though it was thirteen minutes long and most of that thirteen minutes is them repeating all of the versions of the chorus on top of one another over and over again? 

I feel like Soundcheck is kind of like that.

Project Pat at 247 Sky Bar

Daaaaamn, son. Rap legend Project Pat will be here on Thursday night and it’s the perfect opportunity to check out Sky Bar for the first time, just in case you haven’t yet. As a Memphis native (and Juicy J’s older brother) Pat has made a significant mark on the hip-hop scene in his double-decade career and his latest release M.O.B. is, to put it simply, just as good as his old shit.

FRIDAY 10.19
G Herbo at Egyptian Room at Old National Centre

g herbo

Don’t miss the best thing to come from Chicago since me, when I moved back to Indy from there a few years ago: G Herbo. He released Strictly 4 My Fans late last year and will be taking over the Egyptian Room with Southside and Queen Key on Friday. Catch him now, ‘cause I promise next time he comes through it’ll be at a way bigger venue.

A Place To Bury Strangers at HI-FI



A Place To Bury Strangers released Never Coming Back earlier this year and I thought to myself, “Damn, they’re never coming back.” Well, I was wrong. They are, in fact. So borrow some airport worker’s hearing protection and head to HI-FI for the loudest fucking band in the world. Also, they’re playing with S-E-R-V-I-C-E, so Happy Birthday to me!

Mike Adams at His Honest Weight at Pioneer

There are a few bands from Bloomington that you simply have to mention when talking about Indiana’s music scene, and most of them have a guy named Mike in them, and Mike Adams at His Honest Weight is one of those bands. They're a dream-pop raft surfing the crest of the chillest wave. They released Casino Drone on Joyful Noise in 2016 and they’ll be at Pioneer on Saturday. 

"And I'll fall into my brothers' arms when the money's gone

But for now you be my Rivers, I'll be your Matt Sharp"

MONDAY 10.22

Monday night at HI-FI is your chance to witness the white-hot, molten rock of Seattle’s THUNDERPUSSY. I cannot recommend this shit hard enough. Every one of their songs is a carefully crafted stadium-worthy blues anthem. (Beyonce meets Led Zeppelin.) They’re on tour in support of their debut self-titled album, don’t miss it. Long live the Speed Queen.
