Loads of incredible shows this evening. What's more, you've got Mia Calderon, Kidsmeal, How I Became the Bomb and Hollow Ox all celebrating the respective releases of their new records/CDs/digi-EPs. Here's everything I know about:

Black Moth Super Rainbow w/School of Seven Bells at Exit/In. Black Moth's latest, Eating Us, is pretty cool. So says I, anyhow.

How I Became the Bomb Digital EP Pre-Release Party feat. Lucky Pineapple, Justin Kase & Coral Castles at Mercy Lounge.

DJ Kidsmeal CD Release Party at The End feat. Orig, Wick-It & The Billy Goats. Maloney gives Kidsmeal's Secret Recipe 9 out of 10 cones, and it's only missing that last one due to tardiness. Pretty solid endorsement.

Hollow Ox Record Release at Springwater. From Sullivan's Pick: "Hollow Ox never attempt the density of My Bloody Valentine--the standard against which all shoegaze bands are compared--but the band is willing to jam it out longer than their influences ever did."

Beat Box Armada Benefit and Mia Calderon CD Release Party feat. Coolout, Levi Weaver, Trio Gringa and some fashion-y/design-y stuff at The 5 Spot. All the proceeds go to Nashville's Sexual Assault Center and RAINN.

There's also the Nashville Nights benefit at Family Wash, Kate Melua w/David Berkeley at 3rd & Lindsley and Bootsaroo feat. H-Beam, The Janissary & more at The Rutledge. Holy damn, look at all those options. I know where I'm going to be. For the most part, anyway. Time for you to figure out what you're hitting up. Back tomorrow with more.
