Some really exciting shows on the horizon for the Nations Capital (and surrounding area). Highlighted by a 20th Anniversary Tour by iconic Mid-West band The Get Up Kids. If you have any way of getting to Montreal for this show you should! Into It. Over It will be there too!
If you can not make it to Montreal you are in luck. Philly emo-rockers Modern Baseball come to Rituals on Friday night touting a full bill including PUP and Jeff Rosenstock (formerly of Arrogant Sons of Bitches).
One of my favourite venues The Blacksheep Inn will be playing host to Brock Zeman on December 10th. If you are not familiar with Brock you need to check out his stuff. His songwriting is second to none with a sound reminiscent of Tom Waits.
In a few weeks you can head to the NAC to catch one of the best Canadian bands going right now, The Wooden Sky. They are playing two nights as well so you have no excuse to miss them!
