If you're just not that motivated or don't have the time, not to worry: We've done all the heavy lifting for you and put together a list of the weekend's best concerts. It's a healthy mix of imports and exports, as we like to put it. Continue reading to get the full rundown.
10. THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 @ HI-DIVE | SUN, 9/9/12
A couple years ago, it used to be you could see the Chain Gang of 1974 pretty much anytime you felt like it. Back then, Kamtin Mohager lived here and performed with dependable frequency -- when he wasn't on the road with 3OH!3, that is. Since then, however, Mohager moved to Los Angeles, where he made a big splash with Wayward Fire, his auspicious debut for the Modern Art imprint. He doesn't come back to town quite as often these days, which means when he does, like all things in life you tend to take for granted, it's a real treat to get to see him perform. Currently writing songs for his Warner Bros. debut, Mohager returns to the hi-dive this weekend, where he'll share a bill with the Photo Atlas and Pop Cult.
