Crazy week ahead
WSC was good, as usual. Lots of new stuff. Apparently, their new record comes out in December. Not the best I've seen them, but even at their worst, they're a great time.
The Black Cat was crowded and crowded really early. That's great to see. Support your local bands. Thanks to John the bartender for setting me up all night. Be nice to your bartender and they'll take care of you.
The other night someone asked me what shows I had coming up and I drew a blank. I think I sputtered out Q and Not You in September and Devo later this month, but I just couldn't think of the others. Much to my surprise, I came home and checked my calendar, which looks like this:
8/ 8/05 City Goats Fort Reno
8/ 8/05 Del Cielo Black Cat Backstage
8/ 9/05 The Mesmers DC9
8/10/05 New York Dolls 9:30 Club
8/11/05 Olivia Mancini and the Spectacles DC9
8/12/05 The Knitters The Birchmere
8/13/05 Devo 9:30 Club
8/14/05 Devo 9:30 Club
8/15/05 Mary Timony/Medications/The Threads Fort Reno
And that's just next week. That's 9 shows in 8 days. Holy crap. Maybe if I didn't have a job and could sleep all day. Something's got to give. My guess is the City Goats and Mesmers are gonna have to wait. We'll see.
Baseball tonight. C'mon Nats - Get your stuff together.
