Oct. Show Calendar


Hey, Jack O' Lantern windsock, are you ready to rock?
Only if there's a steady breeze, Erik!

So here's the first of what I hope is many many long posts about all the shows in the coming month. I'm usually going to put this up the first of every month, but I'm going to Cedar Point tomorrow, so it's going up a day early, because if you're not early, you're not on time (or something to that effect).

Yeah, so that's pretty much a show a day for the whole month (with the exception of the period between Oct. 22 and Oct. 25, which I belive is around the time of midterms at MSU. I say I believe because I am an excellent and informed student). Oct. 6 is the most popular day, so good luck making up your minds if you're not already going to see Wilco in East Lansing.

This is going to be an excellent month for shows, and I look forward to seeing your smiling faces at many of them.

PS If you know of a show that's not on the list and should be, leave a comment, and I'll either add it in or make a separate post about it.
