Tonight’s Concert Picks: My Bloody Valentine at Electric Factory, Dresses at MilkBoy, Taj Mahal Trio at Grand Opera House, and more

By

My Bloody Valentine

Ethereal alt-rock icons My Bloody Valentine are bringing their elusive melodies and spidery vocals to Electric Factory tonight before they finish up their North American tour in New York. Dropping their anxiously anticipated third full length album mbv in February, Mark Richardson of Pitchfork gave it a 9.1 in his review saying, “mbv is an album of density with very little air or light. But it doesn’t forgo the human touches that have made this band so special.” Find tickets and details for tonight’s show here. Get ready for the show by watching their London performance of “Soon” below.

Portland, indie pop duo Dresses are playing tonight at Milkboy Philly. They released their debut EP Sun Shy earlier this year, which can be downloaded via ITunes. Find tickets and details for the show here. Get excited for the show by watching their “Sun Shy” video below.

The Taj Mahal Trio brings its classic blues melodies to Wilmington’s Grand Opera House tonight. Sharing the stage with Vusi Mahlasela and Fredericks Brown, this is bound to be a show one does not want to miss. Check out all details for tonight’s show here.
