When It Rains, It Pours

September 11th, 2006 · 4 Comments

After a relative drought of live music this summer, the next couple weeks are a minor deluge. Between Black Cat, DC 9 and 9:30 Club we’ve got:

It seems impractical (and expensive) to hit all of these, but I’m probably going to hit most of them if others are interested.

Update: In place of the overpriced Zero 7 show, of course, there’s always the Reason Happy Hour at Dragonfly.

    And in October you’ve got Ratatat, Art Brut, and the Wrens — all at the Black Cat!

    I’m going to Architecture (and Mountain Goats later that week), haven’t decided about Yo La Tengo yet. The fall lineup is looking pretty good–Wrens as mentioned above, plus Decemberists, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene, and Wilco.

    By all means see the Gossip, especially if Erase Errata is still touring with them. Just saw this show here in Madison and it was great.

    just so you know, the drought of music you speak of is common. most bands tour more in the fall to winter months and take time off in the summer. i mean of course active (and often indie) bands. so those awesome (but most likely washed up) bands tour only in the summer. you know, POISON, AEROSMITH, MOTLEY CRUE, etc. those are the bands that play in the summer. anyways, just so you know.
