Happy Birthday, America!

I didn't know what to get you this year so I got you this really great feature.

Please allow this blob a few moments of your procrastination time to break down for you all the good shows happening this 4th of July weekend.

I won't let you down. So help me blob.

Thursday - June 30, 2016 A.D.

The Stone Roses play Madison Square Garden. This album's a classic - is also good.

(try to win tickets here)

Black Mountain plays Bowery Ballroom. They are good.

Weezer plays Jones Beach. They were good. Then they weren't. And now they might be good again. The Damn Daniel guys wouldn't be in a Weezer video if they weren't good again, would they?

Who gives a shit.

Here's old Weezer.

Soul Asylum play Irving Plaza. This song "Cartoon" is good. "Runaway Train" is not.

Other Thursday shows = Freind at Knitting Factory + Paul Simon at Forest Hills Stadium (see: Sting / Gabriel, Peter)
