Saturday, November 1
- Bitch & the Exciting Conclusion, Girl in a Coma, Von Iva and Mr. Russia at Bottom Lounge - A musical poet who "uses an electric violin to rock," a band fronted by "the female version of Morrissey," Afro-beat from San Francisco and "The bastard offspring of Iggy Pop and The White Stripes," respectively. Sounds like a fun night to me. 8 p.m., $12. More info and tickets.
