But I can post whatever good songs I want.

This is my blob.

6. Frankie Rose at Rough Trade on Thursday, October 12th.

I've never heard a Frankie Rose song...

...that wasn't a good song.

RIYL: songs that make you say "I like this!" or "who is this?" or "this is a good song!"

7. Widowspeak at Rough Trade on Friday, October 13th.

Good one at Rough Trade!

If you like good bands who write good songs, you should get into Widowspeak at your earliest convenience and go see them play.

If you don't like good bands who write good songs, forget about it.

*Chicago's Clearance plays this stacked show too -- also a good band!

**please get there on time to see Air Waves -- Air Waves rule!

***what's our vector, Victor

This video below is what made me first love Andrew W.K.

Well, and this of course.

And this.


9. Sean Nicholas Savage at Baby's All Right on Friday, October 13th.

One of the more underrated songwriters in the music game today.

Canada's Sean Nicholas Savage slings strong (post pop) songs.

10. William Patrick Corgan at Murmrr Theatre on Saturday, October 14th / Sunday, October 15th.
