Oh, Hell Yeah! It’s Your Complete Concert Calendar: Dec. 13-19
Pretty much all the live music you can catch in town this week.

Well, if it isn't the penultimate concert calendar of 2022. (We're taking the last week of the year off.)

- Remo Drive @ Fine LineCan you believe it's been five years since Erik and Stephen Paulson busted out of Bloomington with their debut album, Greatest Hits? The brothers have fancied up their sound in the years since—2020's A Portrait of an Ugly Man is a long ways from their humble straightforward emo beginnings—but tonight they'll celebrate that anniversary and remind us where it all started.
- Monica LaPlante + Muun Bato @ IcehouseA great local rock twofer. Rather than rehash what I have to say about LaPlante I'll just link to Racket's recent profile. She pairs nicely with the spacey psych-rock of Muun Bato, whose Paraphonic Vapors album from last October is more than worth a listen.
Saturday, December 17
- Nikki Lane with Jaime Wyatt @ Fine LineComing on the heels of some unlikely collaborations (Spiritualized, Lana Del Rey) Lane's latest, Denim and Diamonds, is her typical mix of freewheeling country-rock and introspective ballads. She's sharpest on the former, especially when she boasts of wearing "blue jeans tighter than goddam Springsteen."
