My busy early fall schedule

Summer is typically the best season for concerts, but that doesn’t mean fall and winter are slumming it when it comes to packing some awesome club and arena rock shows.

Here’s where you’ll find me the next few weeks:

My Morning Jacket @ McCaw Hall Sept. 28

I know very little about MMJ.  But I have always been curious about their live show because I have heard so many good things about it. My buddy had an extra ticket and I couldn’t say no when he offered it up. Plus, “Evil Urges” was a surprise favorite for me this summer.

Cold War Kids @ Showbox at the Market Sept. 29

Like I mentioned earlier this week, I saw these guys at Sasquatch! and was highly impressed. I’ve listened to the new record about a half dozen times and it doesn’t resonate with me the same way the band’s last record did, but maybe after a few more listens I will like it more. I suppose I had better get to liking it since it’s likely CWK will play a lot of new material at the Showbox.

ReverbFEST in Ballard Oct. 4

I attended last year’s ReverbFEST and it was a blast. What made it so much fun was that all the acts were local and all the shows took place in Ballard, one of my favorite western Washington locales. This year I am really excited to see Team Gina and my new favorite local band SHIM. I am sure I will discover plenty more excellent local gems while venue hopping and drinking beer throughout the day.

Weezer at KeyArena Oct. 11

I’m a Weezer fan and this will be my third time seeing the band play KeyArena. The first time was pretty mediocre and the second time was probably the best =W= show I’ve seen, so it will be interesting to see what the group’s tour behind the surprisingly pretty decent “Red Album” will bring. What’s that? You don’t like the “Red Album?” Well, id you can’t crack a smile while listening to “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived” then you simply don’t like music.
