again, a little late to the game on this one, because some of you have probably been enjoying many a street festival already, but, for future reference, i'm including a listing of the schedule for the upcoming street festivals in this great city of ours. keep these festivals in mind for more, great opportunities to see bands play! following this festival calendar will be the show listings from last tuesday for shows that likely went on sale this past weekend. think about buying your tickets for shows early, because many of the shows *do* sell out!
also, i'm happy to see a greater number and variety of shows out that as either suggested meetups or "official" meetups. so many great chances to meet other peeps with great taste in music!
anyway, here's the festival calendar and new show listings.
see you at the show!
