This Week in Great Music: 7/30 – 8/5

Hey, internet.  It’s been a bit of a quiet week around here.  I’ve got a bunch of posts drafted up but finding the time to finish them is another matter entirely.

Instead, here’s my listing of great shows this week.  Lollapalooza’s here this weekend, in case you didn’t notice, and with Lolla comes some great aftershows.  I’ll be absconding away from the city this time around but hopefully you all will find something interesting to see.
