Monarques, World's Greatest Ghosts, Jared Mees & Light For Fire

In a city rich with musical talent, where practically every night promises a couple exciting shows, it's easy to fall behind. With four great local bands playing the Doug Fir on Friday night, this is your chance to start catching up.

Light for Fire's self-titled debut celebrating failed romances and their aftermath is one of my favorite albums this year and they are great live. I'm also excited about hearing a couple great new indie folk rave-ups from Jared Mees & The Grown Children, who are releasing Only Good Thoughts Can Stay next month. World's Greatest Ghosts have been off my radar lately, but I'm looking forward to dancing to their catchy synth-fueled indie rock. The night closes with up-and-coming retro poppers, the Monarques, who should be refreshed from their SXSW trip and gearing up to launch their debut sometime later this year.

This concert should not be missed. Plus it's a steal at only $10.
