It could be the abundance of shows announced over the past few weeks or possibly the kickoff of the fall concert season in September that’s lending to the sparse choice of live music this week, because there are some slim pickins to be had. Unless you love the Marleys, in which case you hit the motherload!
If anyone has word on some super secret underground shows happening between now and next Sunday, feel free to share the wealth. Everyone loves a gossip.
