So Many Shows! So Much Music! All in One Great Big List!

It's your complete concert calendar for May 10-16!

Courtesy of the artist|

Eleganza! will rip this joint (the Turf Club) on Thursday.

I never got around to plugging Eleganza!'s terrific new album, Water Valley High, or their album release show. So let me make up for that by giving a special mention here to the fact that that they'll be playing the Stones' Exile on Main Street in its entirety on Thursday. Yes, they will be getting their "Rocks Off" as they "Rip This Joint" (the Turf Club) and make you "Shake Your Hips" until you're "Happy." (If you don't realize why that sentence is so hilarious, it's because those quoted titles are all Rolling Stones songs from the Rolling Stones album Exile on Main Street.)
