Yeehaw-goth meets full Rooster, control issues and battling the city

Morrissey's doctor has ordered him to rest a spell during treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus. So, the Pope of Mope's Tricky Falls gig is once again being rescheduled. Heaven knows super-fans are miserable now, so send some not happy/not sad recuperative vibes to Moz. I am reassured, 'cause weird old Wilde is on his side.

On the bright side, that frees up our collective schedule to catch Queens, New York duo Blues Control on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Small Engine Gallery (1413 Fourth Street SW), along with Fando and Fort Hobo. On Sunday, Feb. 10, get your alt.country/gothabilly and gonzo-roots fix at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) with Slim Cessna's Auto Club and The Imperial Rooster. Be a battle participant/voyeur on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Desert Banditz' Mic Club 7 at Launchpad (618 Central SW). Peruse the deets in this week's Music to Your Ears. Check out A/V from featured acts below. Small Engine Gallery • Blues Control • Fando • Fort Hobo • Tues Feb 12 • 9 pm • $5 • ALL-AGES! • smallenginegallery.com
