It's actually a little bit of a challenge keeping up with all the shows coming to town that have been announced in the last few weeks (Ralph Stanley at the Rialto! Perfume Genius at Solar Culture!), so most people will have to pace themselves a bit. I can only swindle so many people into watching my children, for example. However, if you enjoy alt-country music and great songs, you should make room in your life for the Lambchop show at Club Congress on May 6th. Their new album Mr. M comes out next week, but you can stream it on NPR's site. The first single "Gone Tomorrow" can be seen in video form above and my personal favorite song of theirs, 2000's "Up With People", is below the cut.
