I love everything you've ever done...

Jumbo Slice,

Nice job updating the look to the blog. Much better. I was about to send a note asking for a reminder of what's going on this week, but I see you've put back the "Upcoming Shows" and the "Who Picks" sections. Thank you. I still had Mass Movement of the Moth on my calendar and was confused. All better now....

I also see that you jumped on the chance to see the "Black Accents" play in early July. As for my week to pick a show, here's what I offer:

1. RUSH at the Nissan Pavilion (Saturday, June 23rd). Tix are double our maximum, however, coming in at $40 after service charges. Although, I could see the potential for tix being available on craigslist below cost (I've already seen one post to that effect). C'mon. This will be a scene! I will even wear my concert T from the "Presto" tour if we go.

2. Nationals v. Cleveland (home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) Indians on Saturday the 23rd (7:05pm) or Sunday the 24th (1:35pm). Tailgate, enjoy a game, gamble a little (the cup game is a good one), and I have a Rock-themed extra as well.

Post your comments now...

Unfortunately, I'll be out of town on Saturday. I think Sacklunch will be gone as well. Any other day that week works for me though. I'm happy to make suggestions for shows...

Have a look at what's happening that week. When I looked last week, there wasn't much of anything...

I checked. The options are horrible. Gang Gang Dance and The Go are playing that week at the R&R Hotel, but I'm not a fan of either. The Go are okay, but far from great. I'd rather roll the dice w/ some crappy Velvet Lounge bands. Or go to The Wonderland Ballroom on Sunday night for the three folk tools playing there. If they suck (highly likely), at least their will be costume karaoke upstairs.

Looks like a good week to be heading out of town. I will be away from 6/23-6/30, if anyone cares....I vote for RUSH

Rush? Oh Jesus. If he gets to pick Rush, I get to pick Morrissey for July 2. I'm leaning to the baseball for this week.

You guys should go to RUN FOR COVER at the BC on 6/23. I heard it is a good time.

Potsy - Forget what I said about skipping the game. I was thinking it was in the afternoon (when I wanted to work on my place). I can make a night game. We should get tickets to Run For Cover in advance though. Can you take care of that?
