You Should Go To These Totally Obscure Bands’ Shows!

As it happens, I sometimes don’t get to go out and have a good time at a club in NYC. Yes, even I get sick and, rather than become exhausted and just make my body hate me more than it already does, I spend most of my non-work time sleeping… Actually, since I work overnights at a dog kennel, I spend most of my work hours sleeping too… So there ya’ go: my week has pretty much been me sleeping, and arguing with my head to stop hurting (to which it replies: I hate you!).
However, I won’t leave you article-less this week, but I haven’t really used the energy I have saved up for listening to bands and taking the time to write something… fairly thoughtful… about an indie band, even one I’ve been following for years.
My solution to this (and any other time I’m pretty unable to write about a band because life, being what it is, sometimes smacks you upside the head with a stop sign… or yield sign, as it were), is to tell you all about shows that the bands I follow have coming up, through the end of August.
