On Saturday, I made my way down to the Sweatshop to check out Taxes. The sound wasn't stellar, but the band was in their usual fine form.
We Are Wolves dropped in after their show for a DJ set, which wasn't like A-Trak dropping in for a DJ set or anything, but I've heard much worse from bands behind turntables.
Fake Shark-Real Zombie are at the Biltmore on October 16th with the Green Hour and Sports.
The Doers and gr8-2000 play at Budgie's on October 17th. The evening also features a burrito eating contest.
The Emergency Room hosts a Black Sabbath tribute night on Halloween. Speaking of, if you're having trouble finding it, you can email me for directions.
AIDS Wolf is at the Biltmore with Shearing Pinx on November 24th.
And, Twin Crystals are at Geronimo Wednesday at Pub 340 tomorrow to kick of their tour. You may or may not have noticed that I haven't been posting any shows at 340, despite the fact that some good people are still doing good things there. A few friends of mine got fired, with zero notice, for essentially no reason, when the bar cleaned house, so while I've got nothing against anyone who finds themselves patronizing the place or playing, especially when you think of the lack of venues in the city, barring a change of management, you're still not going to read a lot about the place here. But, Jesse went out of his way to ask me to post about their show tomorrow. And hey, if you're going to go there, tomorrow is a good night to do it.
Before anyone brings it up, I'm aware that there are plenty of good reasons to boycott other venues around town, but this one hit a bit closer to home.
