The War On Drugs at BSP 

click to enlarge nh_war-on-drugs.jpg

March 15. One of BSP Lounge's many coups of the last two years was the Kurt Vile and the Violators date it hosted this past October. So it makes a lot of sense that the club would also bring in Philadelphia band the War on Drugs, an act that Vile co-founded with singer-guitarist Adam Granduciel, who is himself a former Violator (confusing, this incestuous Philly indie-rock stuff). TWOD's third album, Lost in the Dream, comes out this month, and has been accumulating advance raves as the latest installment of band leader Granduciel's hazy and melodic neopsychedelia. All right, then, let's get lost. White Laces open. (The Black Hollies and Raccoon Fighter brawl March 1; Marissa Nadler bewitches March 6.) 9pm. $15, $17. Kingston. (845) 481-5158; Bspkingston.com.
