Guided by Voices? Sparks? Must Be the Complete Concert Calendar for March 15-21

Courtesy of the artist|

Guided by Voices; Sparks

Folks, I'm running out of ways to say "live music is back." I'm getting desperate. If this were (god forbid) a podcast I could use funny voices or vocal effects. But what am I gonna do? Use ALL CAPS like a big ol' hack? Resort to Wingdings or Comic Sans?

We fit as much of this week's upcoming live music into Event Horizon yesterday, but there's more where that came from. Much more. As BTO said, b-b-baby you ain't seen nothin' yet. (Told you I was getting desperate.)
