March Shows In...


I just know I'm going to get stuck standing behind the Fridge at the Jens Lekman show. I just know it.

We all know the month of March belongs to Austin but there are plenty of goings on around the Midwest as well. Chicago is jam packed (and just wait until you see April, oh boy) and the good news is even if you won't be able to make any of these shows, Maxim has already reviewed half of them for your reading pleasure. The Magnetic Fields are doing a three-day residence at the Old Town School of Folk Music, Malkmus and those Jicks will be at the Vic on the 21st, Jens Lekman at Hickory High on the 31st, and last but not least, our good friend Totally Michael will roll into town on the 29th. It will be nice having him back in town, won't it?
