Well it's been a rough couple of weeks in the world hasn't it? Natural disasters, wars and civil unrest. And of course in the U.S. we're preoccupied with... Charlie Sheen. At least we have our priorities in order :/. Not to worry, you can count on Shoegazer to be as irreverent as ever with brand new music from Scattered Trees, Lykke Li and British Sea Power, who will be playing Iowa City on the 28th, as well as tracks from LCD Soundsystem, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, early Phoenix and The National among others, and two bands we saw in person last week: Cotton Jones and Maps & Atlases. Saturday evening at 6 and again Thursday morning at 9. Beware the Ides of March.
