If you’re in need of some Thursday night plans, or even if you have plans already, get yourself to The Bishop tomorrow to see Margaret Glaspy with Bad Bad Hats. This show will be packed with enough groovy vibes and powerhouse vocals to banish the midwinter blues–for a couple of hours at least.
Opener Bad Bad Hats hails from Minneapolis and their 2015 album, Psychic Reader is chock full of earnest, poetical lyrics coated in indie rock instrumentation. Listen to “Midway” and “It Hurts” beforehand to get hyped for what is sure to be a great set.

After devouring her music for more than a year, I can’t wait to see her live. In the meantime, let’s have a little cry to this awe-inspiring cover:
Tickets are $12 and can be purchased here. The show kicks off at 9:30. This event is 18+.
