Musicologist: October 8–14

This week Musicologist will be checking out Regina Spektor at the Kool Haus, thanks to the insistence of a friend who pretty much exclusively listens to hip hop. The fact the he loves Spektor means she’s gotta be good. It’s sold out, but Musicologist never shies away from listing sold out shows—we all know there’s always an (expensive) last-ditch way to get in if you’re desperate. (Why does that sound dirty? We mean scalpers, of course.)
Other good bets are Tegan and Sara with openers Northern State tonight and The Besnard Lakes, Young Galaxy and New Buffalo (writer of Feist’s “1234”) for a bargain $10 on Friday. Electronic music fans are in for a treat with Trentemoller at the Mod Club that night. If sexiness and spoken word are your thing, head to Convocation Hall to see Henry Rollins instead.
Complete listings after the fold.
