Feast or Famine

This summer was a long drought for me when it came to concerts. There were maybe 4 concerts in the DC area I was excited about? Anyway, I can stop complaining about the lack of good shows and start complaining about the log-jam of goodness about to hit our region.

How is one man supposed to cover all of this? Or afford it? Hell, some nights even have two good shows simultaneously! I’d have to be friggin’ Nightcrawler to cover those!

Ah well, it’s gonna be a damn fun Fall concert season!

    I just noticed earlier today that I missed that one on my list. I’ll see how I feel after night school. Maybe I’ll be there.
