It’s Make it Missoula Monday. Each week, Trail 103.3 DJ, Craig Johnson shares his picks of the week for Missoula happenings. You can hear him discuss them on-air each Monday at 9:00 am. Here’s what’s happening this week:
Never Young (ROCK) at the Real Lounge
Tickets: $7 Advance/DOS
Description: Never Young is a noise rock band from the Bay Area in California. Blending raw punk sounds and 90’s guitar music with a synthetic digital aesthetic, jarring militant anthems meet angular pop songwriting. Never Young’s futurist sound is fleshed out and fully realized on their new self-titled EP; the sound of a pastel yellow iPhone 5c crashing through the window of your psyche.

Irish Traditional Music with the Craicers (FOLK) at Imagine Nation Brewing Co.
1151 W Broadway
Sweet Adelines Open House/Holiday Singing (MISC) at the First Baptist Church

Elwood (FOLK) at Lolo Peak Brewery
Description: What is it that moves your soul? For Elwood it has always been the ever awe inspiring serenity and shear power of Mother Nature and you can feel it in his music. The trickle of a small stream, the roar of a thunder cloud, the pure silence of meadow lit by the coming of the sun….it’s these things that sit at the very core of Elwood’s music. Elwood has had the honor of sharing the stage with bands such as Simon Tucker, Tim Snider, Michael Kirkpatrick, Kory Quinn, Left Coast Country, many more.
