As best as I can tell, there are two shows worth strongly recommending to you this week:
[edited to add two more shows]
Friday, August 17
The Purrs, Star Collector and The Scheme at the Comet Tavern
The Femurs and Speaker Speaker at the High Dive
Saturday, August 18
Young Sportsmen CD release show at Sunset Tavern
Sunday, August 19
Fountains of Wayne at Neumos
I'll be writing a lot about both of these shows during the week, including a several-part interview and review series on the new Young Sportsmen disc.
If there's anything else cool happening, please feel free to tell me via the comments button.
