Weekly Show Update

Music in the City – And no there is never enough – If anyone wants to be added to the email list – Email me (or post to the comments).

Week of 10/29-11/4/10

PRINCE – 5 Purple Days in December went on sale today. The pre-sale tix rather sucked so Im hoping to get some better seats tomorrow (at 10am they go on sale). Looks like December is turning into quite a great month 😀

Hope everyone had a great time at CMJ. There were some really awesome bands there! (and some Id rather forget – well a lot, actually – but the great ones made up for it) 🙂
