This Week in Great Music: 10/25 – 10/31

If you’re looking for me this week, I’ll be on my Mumford Midwest Mini-Roadtrip.  (I can’t think of another word with M.  Migration, maybe?)  I’ll be arriving in Minneapolis the 28th — it’s my first time there, so I decided to go in a day early to explore the city a bit.  The show there is the 29th; then I leave the next morning for Milwaukee, and then the morning after that, it’s back to Chicago.  It will be epic, and I will be exhausted, and I will sure be wishing that I had a vacation day on Monday.  Oops.
