cat powerPICK OF THE WEEK: Cat Power @ McCabe’s

Local officials are pleading with the public to conserve Cat Power during this peak concert season. Suggested conservation steps include minimizing the consumption of Chan Marshall’s songs weekdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and only playing her shorter tracks. Thank you for doing your part to prevent unnecessary Cat Power outages.

Whatever its duration, School of the Flower is one of those rare, understated but compulsive collections you’ll want to listen to on repeat until it’s time to blow out the incense, dump the wine in the sink, and step fuzzy-headed into the imperfect sunlight of the prosaic, but suddenly potentially transcendent world. – Pitchfork
