The Current Forecast: Listen to the music you can hear live in town

Welcome back to the Current Forecast playlist! Every Tuesday Current Magazine is putting together a playlist of the live music acts coming to town over the next week.

It’s always a sad time of year when Sonic Lunch closes down, but this year it means one more chance to see and dance to Mitch Ryder on Thursday the 25th. Later that evening, Pittsburgh indie rock band Skull Kid comes to town at Metal Frat on their End of Summer Tour, which promises to be a great show. Friday the 26th finds Ellis Paul performing beautiful folk music at The Ark. If you’re more in the mood for something funky with a global flair, check out The Macpodz at the Blind Pig on Friday the 26th. Finally, heavy rock band War Brides come in from Chicago on Sunday the 28th to headline a show at 3rd Death Star alongside Terrible as the Dawn and King Under the Mountain.

Make sure to check back next week to see who is coming to town!
