Weekend Checklist

Categories: Just Announced
It's November, that hated pre-dawn month of winter before the drizzle turns to snow, and the clouds hang upon the city like a death mask. Maybe its the daylight savings adjustment keeping some of our heavy hitters at home in front of Fallout 3 with a cup of Lipton instead of on the Triple Rock Stage with a Czechvar, but here are our weekend picks for shelter against the coming cold.


Big V's

Corpse Show Creeps
Cadillac Kolstad
Bad Pennies
Al's Rockabilly Quartet

For anyone who's inner Pony Boy has spent the last week being drowned by the socs of the world, this is the perfect excuse to wipe the dust off your jar of Murray's and get knifey. Which brings us to:

First Avenue
