You know summer is heating up when there are this many events of note on a Wednesday. To wit:
•Bright Eyes' final tour comes to LC Pavilion, 405 Neil Ave., with support from Americana studs Dawes. Read my remembrance of Conor Oberst and company and get there around the 7 p.m. door time if you want a good spot. (This show is indoors, so you have to deal with the notorious LC sight lines, or lack thereof.) Tickets cost $32.
•PromoWest moved the concurrent Oberhofer show nextdoor from The Basement to its upstairs counterpart A&R Bar, 391 Neil Ave., and fashioned it into a Bright Eyes afterparty of sorts. I heartily endorse this show. Admission is free, and the 10 p.m. start time is probably a loose approximation for "whenever the Bright Eyes show ends."
•The official Bright Eyes afterparty, however, is at a new bar in the Brewery District called Double Happiness, located at 482 S. Front St. across from CD101. Sweatin' founder Scott Niemet will deejay. This sounds like a pretty great place to be as well.
•And if you're looking for a show that's not affiliated with Bright Eyes in any way, come to The Summit, 2210 Summit St., to see Toronto's Dinosaur Bones, who sound sort of like The Walkmen as fronted by Julian Casablancas. Locals Dirty Girls and The Compressions open this TRIO production.
