Summer is over and mother nature has been doing her duty the last few days reminding us of such, sending a series of quintessential fall afternoons our way lately (which I have adored, by the way). Last night I even tracked down my comforter in the guest room shambles and threw it back on my bed for the first time in months.
Of course, while all this really means is that the death-ice of winter is soon to our doorsteps, right now I'm trying to enjoy the moment and the incipient color changes of the leaves. And, of course, the best way to be in the moment is to rock.
Thankfully, the schedule for next month allows us to do so in style (as does an early look at the rest of the fall months). Here are the CB endorsed shows, in all their glory. And if you aren't good with clues, the bolded ones are the shows I am really looking forward to.
