It is the weekend before SXSW which is the weekend before WMC which is the weekend before you die and no bands are in DC but for the time being we should embrace the benefits of everyone being on the road and stopping by the club near you.

As for that part, lets see:

and finally, just when you thought there is nowhere to go to late the  411 LOFT bonanza is in full swing

Objectively speaking, if your parents named you Bud Fox, you lost your battle before you even knew it:


While I am exhausted just by typing about Saturday, let alone living through it, you’d be a damn fool if you didn’t at least consider:

And don’t let anyone eat your lunch.
