The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Fulsome Concert Calendar (intended)

Any show listed without tickets is, of course, provisional. If anyone else has any interest in going let's make it official. I just lost Frank Black tickets because I was waiting for final word from Punko and instead now get nothing.

So here's the list with links to any potential non-obvious headliners that are more obscure than usual, the rest you can look up and feel as unhip as appropriate.

March 16 - Citay, Sic Alps @ Hemlock

March 19 - Field Music, Okay, Red Thread @ BotH
March 20 - Art Brut, Gil Mantera's Party Dream, Crystal Skulls @ BotH

March 21 - Belle and Sebastian, The New Pornorgaphers (happily Pop Ren is coming with me and tix are secured!)

March 22 - The White Rose Movement, Bella Vista, Sky Parade @ BotH

March 23 - Hope Chest @ Edinburgh Castle

March 24 - The Strokes (I have purchased tix and have two extra!)

March 27 - The Subways, The Shys, Two Seconds @ Slims (tix are $2 with service charge, no excuses people!)

March 28+29 - The Bad Plus @ Yoshi's in Oakland -- these guys are phenomenal jazz musicians who play some rock covers (Blondie, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Bjork) plus their own phenomenal tunes.

I'm not 100% sure of a choice location because it's in the no man's land of SOMA. I'll try and wander around the area this weekend to scope it out.

fulsome, what about that place we went to on New Year's Eve? The first one, not the cool second one.

Chuckie, get off the cute. Again, AG was being cute. When one does not know about the music of another, one participates by making a cute comment or joke. There is a subtle difference. Try it this weekend while trolling Starbucks in VA for Chucklettes.
