Baths is hitting Black Cat on Friday, touring in support of his bleak new album, Obsidian! If you’re looking for something more relaxing, Decatur Beach Party is going down, featuring Jimmy Buffet tribute band, A1A. If you’d rather dance the night away to 80’s throwback songs though, Twin Shadow’s got you covered at Black Cat! No matter how you want your weekend to sound, we’ve got a pick for you!
Friday, June 14th – Baths at Black Cat
Will Wiesenfeld named his Baths project after his days as a kid, ruminating over his art in the bathtub. Don’t expect his new album to be as cuddly as his name though, it’s a dark affair which will surely translate into an interesting live show!
