Shows for September in 2010!

posted on September 1, 2010 at 5:13 am · filed under Concert News

You may have noticed that last night, I wasn’t manning the 1’s n’ 2’s – I was fortunate enough to find a delightful sub for the 8/30 show so I could go see Tesco Vee’s current project at Banditos.  It was awesome, and – catching the last hour or so after leaving the bar, last night – so was DJ Ginger’s delightful take on Mother’s Milk.  Expect the podcast of that to be up in the near future, but until then, here’s our guide to great bands to get drunk to, this month!

Buncha stuff this month!  Unfortunately, it seems like some of the most interesting stuff is in DC, so some road-tripping may be in order.

I suppose a bit of explanation is in order:  Generally speaking, every band I list on my monthly concert calendar has at least one truly great drinking song.  This month, there are a couple of exceptions; I included them, because they’re either bands I really like, or bands that other people I know really like, and I’m pretty sure that getting drunk at ANY of these shows will be a blast.

In case you’re worried you might accidentally see a band that doesn’t sing about drinking, here are the bands I can’t confirm a drinking song by: Deftones, Tears For Fears, Charlatans UK, Eels, Peelander-Z, Shonen Knife, and The Jim O’Ferrell Band. If you know of any drinking songs by any of those bands, please let me know in the comments so I can feel better about myself. 🙂
