This Week in Great Music: 10/11 – 10/17
By Sarah on October 11, 2010
This is basically the worst week in the world for concerts. And by worst, I mean full of too many choices. I’ll be at the Brandi Carlile show at SPACE on Wednesday, and at DeVotchKa at Lincoln Hall on Saturday. The rest of the week is up in the air. I’ll probably be sobbing under my desk rather than making any real decisions.

This Week in Great Music: 4/26 – 5/2
By Sarah on April 26, 2010
I can safely say that there’s a show every night this week that I want to be at. I’m not going to make any predictions of where I’ll actually show up, though, because that’s just asking for me to spend all week sitting at the computer and playing Plants vs. Zombies.

This Week in Great Music: 11/23 – 11/29
By Sarah on November 23, 2009
A bit of a late post for this week’s concert run-down. Between preparing a couple of other posts for the site, and doing the job that I actually get paid for, there wasn’t a whole lot of spare time this morning to pull things together. Tuesday is a night of competing artists-who-had-songs-on-popular-television, with Imogen Heap’s […]
