This Week in Great Music: 8/29 – 9/4

Hello, last days of August.

I won’t be around, but I highly recommend seeing In Tall Buildings on Thursday, The Square Affair on Friday, and Save the Clocktower on Saturday.  Three days of solid shows by local bands.  What isn’t to love?

Also, don’t forget that the North Coast Music Festival is going on this weekend, the 2nd to the 4th, in Union Park.  Three day passes are sold out, but single day tickets are still available.
