When Music Attacks! Fall 2013
I haven’t received a 9:30 Club email in a good long while that makes my all my epidermis green with envy! And what slays me is that when I am home in December visiting DC/MD from South Africa, there will be approximately no shows because the holidays are not a time of year that bands tour. Le sigh. These are just the highlights! I recommend all of them. Please go. I can’t but you can.
I’m doing this by venue instead of date because it’s easier.
The shows I think you would most enjoy are bracketed with ** to signify my deep envy.
This show is sequentially furthest away but in terms of significance and awesomeness is the most important.
