There's been a bit of a hubbub in my work life lately, so once again this magic carpet isn't really in flight. There's always fun shows, though, even for those of us who aren't in Indio.
Local-- The Compulsions (11pm at what used to be the Acme Underground, now Ace of Clubs)
Insane-- TV on the Radio at Exit
Sold Out-- The Wedding Present
Go see Anne Heaton play with Joe Pernice of The Pernice Brothers at the Mercury Lounge. You won't be sorry.
Patti Smith at CB's. Thanks Brooklyn Vegan for the heads up, natch.
