This week's cool shows: Mystery show and more!

This week's show of the week is undoubtedly the Thursday show at Tir na Nog that we've all been asked not to post on the Internet (after it was posted on Facebook). You probably know who it is already. If you're friends with Chris Tamplin on Facebook, then you definitely know who it is. The idea is that this should be a word-of-mouth only show, so I won't reveal it here, though I will say that I'm glad the band is making good on a favor they've owed Tamplin since January.

The other big show of the week is Megafaun and Mount Moriah at Cat's Cradle on Friday. Richmond's Great White Jenkins are opening. Greensboro's Citified will be at Slim's on Friday with Gray Young, and Broad Street Cafe on Saturday with Free Electric State. Static Minds are playing Abe Quinn's birthday blowout Saturday at Slim's so expect the alcohol to be flowing for that one. Future Islands are holding their CD-release show with Lonnie Walker TONIGHT at the Berkeley. And finally Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are at Cat's Cradle next Tuesday, May 11.

Finally, this isn't music-related, but I really love this particular organization and believe in what they do: The Coalition to Unchain Dogs is holding its Fashion Unchained fundraiser on Saturday at Marbles Kids Museum. Please check it out!
