Things to Do: Tonight and This Week

No review today unless you really want a rundown on how god-awful Monday television is. Yes, I watched the Bachelor finale. It was the first time I've seen any episode this season and I think I kinda vomited in my own mouth. That shit was terrible, I should've gone to the Beauty Bar.

Anyway, this is how this week is shaping up:

Tonight, Tuesday Nov 28: Unless you're going to Scolari's tonight for The Black, Bartenders Bible, Vision of A Dying World and True Crime Authors, it might just be a good night to stay home. Maybe I'll buy my Christmas tree and listen to Il Divo. Too bad I haven't gotten my hands on the Sufjan Christmas box set yet...

are there really two concerts scheduled for the same night at epicentre? al guerra mentioned that sounds show to me last week- he was still looking for a venue.

Rosemary Bystrak said...

You're right. I originally thought the Sounds were supposed to be on Saturday. Get Back Loretta, Gayle Skidmore and Long Live Logos do not have a show posted for that same night at the epicentre. Thanks for catching that.

BTW, I e-mailed Get Back Loretta and they are still opening the show, but are more intent on publicizing the show on Thursday at Soma.
