  • Happy New Year to All and most especially the music freaks. The New Year is ramping up slowly, but what do you expect when it starts on a Monday?

  • So many things conspired against my health last week that I’m not sure when I’ll get to the next show, but that shouldn’t stop anyone else from abandoning all reason and getting some proper Season’s beatings. This is your map leading up to the day of days, when there may or may not be a show, but if I find one or two for Monday, I’ll let you know. I swear I heard about something fun happening Christmas evening. Let’s check it out, though there are gaps throughout the week that I’ll work to fill. When & Where: Tuesday, December...

  • It’s kind of a strange weekend, there are very few shows that I can find, but every damn one of them is essential…so the choices are still difficult on Saturday at the very least. And this isn’t exaggeration…I’d like to split myself to attend all of the ten or so shows below. This weekend may get me out of the house ever night if I don’t watch it. When & Where: Thursday, December 7th, 7pm at Crescent Ballroom Reasons to Attend: It’s been many years since Captain Squeegee has put out some new music and this Thursday is the night...

  • I went to a show around this time last week and I’ve been dreadfully ill ever since. My hopes is that I get better and can make it to any number of amazing shows on the roster below, because it’s a great way to send off November and welcome December as we count down the remaining days of 2017: The Year. Or we’re counting down to Christmas, or Yule or Hanukkah or any festival of lights you want to choose that hearken back to the days of the Old Gods and the realization that the darkest day of the year...

  • So, this is late, but I was wrapping up the December issue of JAVA and making preparations for the great Mythical American Holiday Feast, for which I’ll be serving Moroccan and Mediterranean favorites. That said, there are not a lot of shows this week, but they’re all stunners and I’ll take concentrated quality over quantity any day. There were some great shows on Tuesday and I’m sorry for missing shout outs to those shows, but there’s only the now right now, so let’s go and take a look at what’s happening… When & Where: November 22nd, 4pm at Helio Basin...

  • This is a freaking amazing week with stellar lineups every night. I’ll be adding more shows for the weekend, but even without more events, this is solid. I’d suggest spending a lot of your Saturday at The Trunk Space if you want the best in bands that are running under the radar and make your indie rock dreams come true. The choices are difficult every night, but maybe you can determine the best place to find the music you love this weekend.
