Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, & More Awesome Shows This Week

1
Psychic Ills, White Hills: Bowery Ballroom, February 7, $15
Like the name would imply, Psychic Ills specialize in heavy-as-molasses psych-rock, yet buried in the squalls of bluesy guitar are big hooks and catchy undercurrents. RIYL: mind expansion, incense, and the color black.
Thursday, February 7, 8 p.m., Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey Street (between Bowery and Chrystie Street); 212-533-2111.
