This week's cool shows: The War on Drugs, J. Roddy Walston and Thou

Looks like I'll be spending a good part of my week at Kings.

Incredibly prolific NOLA doom/sludge band Thou starts off the week on Monday. Proselyte -- including members of Phantom Glue -- and Chapel Hill's MAKE open. You can download Thou's 23 albums here.

Tuesday at Kings is The War on Drugs -- my official show of the week, and a show that's pretty much guaranteed to sell out. Go ahead and get your tickets now. Seriously, everyone I know is talking about this one. New Raleigh is even giving away copies of the band's Secretly Canadian latest, Slave Ambient, and the latest release by show opener Carter Tanton. Fans of both Bob Dylan and My Bloody Valentine will  fine something to love with this band. Check out the video for "Baby Missiles" below.

And on Thursday J. Roddy Walston and the Business will bring their boogie-piano glam rock to Kings. Bright Young Things and J. Kutchma open this show.
