nothing to do

Well frands, we seem to have entered a little bit of a lull before August slams us with Richard Dreyfest and Total Fest. This is all right by moi. There are a couple shows coming up this week, though, in particular the Shramana tour kickoff on Wednesday. Now 100 percent more Shakespearian!


rock on.

this is the first Google result for Lucero. Ben Nichols has really changed his hairdo since I saw them last

heyyyyy sad-sacks, Lucero plays the Top Hat tonight. Tickets are like $20.  The last time I saw Lucero, it turned into the kind of night that Lucero songs are about. So we’ll see how this goes, hmm?

There’s also a show of the more indie-rock persuasion at Stage 112, and a residency at the VFW. Pick your poison! I have work tomorrow but whatever!

heh their band name has "dick" in it

So *tonight*, Tuesday, Illinois anarcho punk outfit Autonomy plays the VFW. (Peeps thought they were playing Wednesday but there was a mixup, I believe.) So let’s all rage tonight if we see fit! I don’t think there’s a cover charge.

Wednesday, locals including Deadbeats and I think Jake Osborne play the VFW.

And because the fun don’t stop, Aussie indie pop outfit Dick Diver plays the VFW Thursday, as part of the Dragon Parfait presidency residency. (Typos are fun sometimes.)

OH! And Thursday night is Lucero at the Top Hat. The weather forecast calls for whiskey, scruffy dudes and garbled singalongs.

Had to crop this, but the missing bit of relevant info is that it’s at the VFW and it “starts” at 9 PM. (Side note: I’m saving up a really big rant about shows starting ridiculously late, and it will change nothing, but it will be really satisfying.)

Check out Wildcat’s demo on Bandcamp. Dunno who the other bands are, ‘cept for those nerds in Dead Beats.

since that weekend is also the Northside/Westside Block Party on Saturday *and* Sunday Streets *and* your faithful editor’s birthday rager, I predict a helluva weekend. Let’s drink like we’ve finally aged out of our parents’ health care plan! Crap!

ETA: post updated bc the Shannon flyer had the wrong date on it.

happy shark week

The Hard Times is doing “Crust Punk Week” instead of Shark Week and it is perfect.

Where Am I?
