It’s the last week of August, which feels like end of summer (though it doesn’t officially end until Sep 22), which can feel like a bummer. But it doesn’t need to be! There’s a full week and long weekend of shows to see, with Spoon live at Malkin Bowl being one of them! Don’t miss these massive indie stars as they’ve lit up the charts with their newest album.
Plus, check out incredible shows like local highlights Alexandria Maillot and Tavis E Triance, and the energy of folk punkers AJJ, visiting from Arizona! And to close all this fun out with a bang, indie darling sisters Haim are playing holiday Monday!
Here are the Top 15 shows to see this week, as presented by our city’s #knowfun Selectors at Do604.

Tavis E. Triance at The Biltmore Cabaret – Sat Sept 2
At long last! Local up and comer Tavis E Triance had to cancel this show earlier this summer due to a lost voice. We can’t wait to hear his unique music live this week.
Spoon with White Reaper at Malkin Bowl – Sat Sept 2
What a massive show! Legendary indie stars Spoon paired with much-newer-to-the-spotlight garage punkers White Reaper. Outdoor at the Malkin Bowl – perfect!
