Fall Music Schedule

I can't believe I haven't posted anything regarding indie music for the longest time which is the whole persona of this blog. I also apologize for not updating my playlist as well, but I will shortly. Anyway, I haven't kept up with the latest music news since I was extremely busy for the past months fixing up our new place, taking care of work, going to school, and didn't have access to cable for a short while. In a way, I lost touch for a moment, but I'm baaack! Well, sort of. I'm not totally lost as of yet though. I think one of the main reasons was also the absense of better bands out there (and concerts) except for Maximo Park. But now I'm rejuvinated with the new release of Death Cab's Plans (the CD's out now so buy your copy now, or you can always download from iTunes) and an upcoming tour (I had the opportunity for a pre-sale, but I didn't have money then so by the time I had it, the tix were already sold out). Anyway, fall is an exciting time for upcoming concerts in the bay area. Check out the sked below -
