Calling All Enthusiasts!

Wow. The last time I heard of a Billy Corgan public appearance, he was urging his Chicago Cubs to certain playoff disaster by performing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch. At the time, I read that he said that Cubs fans never quit. Yeah. Tell that to the surviving members of Zwan.

Somehow, he's managed to sell out his 930 Club show. Good luck with that, DC.

I failed to apprise you of tickets being on sale for The Academy Is... and Tegan and Sara, but there they are. Shows July 17 and 18 respectively. Also, if you're one of those housebound Cartoon Network loving fans, tickets are on sale for the August 22 Puffy AmiYumi show.

This weekend is awesomah powah with regards to your live rock options. Though, I have to encourage you: Behold! much?

Spoon/Clientele is, like Mr. Corgan, all sold out and sewed up. But if you want to get your 930 on, catch the Futureheads one night later. The first opener, Pitty Sing, is Ultragrrrl endorsed.

To my mind, the hot show is WSC/Army of Me/Exit Clov tonight at Black Cat. I don't think I need to belabor my undying Exit Clov fandom. All three of these groups easily make my First Team All-DC and, yeah, they'd start for any team in the league. Let's hope the Black Catty Sound Guy brings his A-game (or at least not his T-game) tonight, though, because the last time Exit Clov played there, the mix was so bass-boomy-zoomy that it made me suspect that the Black Cat was Deep Throat.

IOTA, it should be noted, has an amazing weekend planned as well. Tonight is the awesome, awesome, AWESOME Miss Maria McKee. Tomorrow is another fave of mine, Juniper Lane, fronted by the six-million dollar woman Vivion Smith. Truly two of the best singin' throats you'll see.

And, Behold Behold Behold. At the Sanctuary Theatre tonight and tomorrow at 8pm. Click on that NEXT BIG THING link for the deets.

Now, have fun people.
