As I mentioned in my last post, there are a number of promising shows coming up. Below is my list of everything I have on my horizon between now and Labor Day.
(Note to readers: if you think I missed anything, leave it in the comments section, along with a little description of why the band you are posting about is awesome, so that the rest of us can get turned on to them, cool?)
I've put down as many links as possible, so give a click to whatever looks interesting or falls on an empty calendar page in your day planner to see what's up.
The ones in BOLD are etched with serious ink in my own personal calender.
