  • As we come to the end of July it feels like the last semi-quiet week before the deluge of record releases and CD release parties started going full throttle. Who am I kidding though, the quality of shows this Summer has been phenomenal and the quantity has been a record breaker right along with the temperatures. The following shows are the best of the best, and they are, to be certain the best of the shows that have flyers. Sorry, no digital flyer, no mention of the show. That said, I dropped four or five shows from this weeks lineup...

  • It’s actually a pretty light week this week and I even went beyond my social media invites to search for extra shows, found a couple that way. I also eliminated any event that didn’t have a flyer. Which leaves us with the ten shows below. That said, five of the ten shows below are all on Saturday, so there’s that. I may hit some of the shows mid week, but I’m taking off for Northern climbs this weekend, mainly so I don’t have to make such damn difficult decisions here. Just kidding, I’d be going to the Soul Asylum show...

  • Well, hot diggety damn there are a lot of great shows this week and a lot of unusual shows at that. I’ve got three house parties listed below, for instance. This is also a peculiar week because you have three chances to catch Field Tripp and two chances to catch Wyves. Friday is the usual clusterfuck of trying to decide which magnificent show to choose from and this rolls right into next week, because there is an awesome house show on Monday. Also, if I see you playing Pokemon while some band I love is playing, I’ll probably destroy your...

  • I like the way that not even the heat of July can keep local bands from putting on some of the best shows of the year. This week has a sweet lineup and every night of the week has something to offer. There are many moments of greatness to be found and I’m sure since I’m posting this so early in the week there will be a lot more that I can add through the week. Stay tuned and if I hear of more shows that have flyers, I’ll post them here. In the meantime, check out the great live...
