Our favorite ball-busting, electric organ-drenched, sinister-vocaled garage rock band of all time plays an exciting two-night run at the Observatory this week. A Murder City Devils show is something to grab onto tight when it swings by—the band plays few shows a year (fortunately for us, usually on the West Coast) with new material released only once in the last decade. But Murder City fans are a die-hard sort—we'll wait as long as it takes for a chance to witness the throaty howl of singer Spencer Moody live onstage. They play both Monday and Tuesday night—giving us a healthy double dose of mayhem before they disappear again into the fog of hometown, Seattle.
