There’s few shows that would get me to Jiffy Lube Live, but if the Birds were to wrap this series against the Yanks in 4, I’d be there for Zac Brown Band…

Silversun Pickups are so underrated…

I saw Passion Pit in Chicago once. I don’t really have anything to follow that up with. This is a good song…

Noticed a billboard for the Spin Doctors show on 83 going in to the baseball game Sunday night. Thought to myself “hell yeah, I’d go see the Spin Doctors…”

OH MY GOD I LOVE OKTOBERFEST!!! Quick-what’s better about Okotberfest-the food…

The beer?
