August 5, 2010 – The New Pornographers @ Metro

I don’t know what to really expect from this show. I am not really familiar with the New Pornographers but I really liked what I’ve heard and I hear nothing but good things about them. I am big fan of Neko Case though so I am thinking it will be a really good show. I just have to remember not to throw an album and I think I’ll be ok.

August 6, 2010 – Rogue Wave @ Schubas

This will be the third time I see Rogue Wave this year. I only got into them this year because of SXSW. I really enjoyed the two times I saw them, once at SXSW and once at Lincoln Hall. I’ve finally had a chance to listen to Permalight so I’ll have some familiarity with those songs. I am pretty sure this will be another good performance. The other times I saw them, I was standing at the back of the room so hopefully I can get a good spot for this one.

August 7, 2010 – The Black Keys, The Morning Benders @ Metro

I’ve never seen the Black Keys before, although I did see Dan Auerbach last year at Lollapalooza and I enjoyed that. I also love the latest Black Keys album, Brothers. This show was a little pricey but I think it’ll be worth it.  I just saw the Morning Benders a few months ago at Lincoln Hall. They have a good sound and I think they’ll be a great opening band.

August 21, 2010 – Sundowner, The Sidekicks @ Subterranean

This would be the third time I see Sundowner. It would also be the first time I see him since the new album, We Chase The Waves, came out. I am really excited about this show. Sundowner has become one of my all-time favorite musicians over the last three years and the new album only adds to that. As for the Sidekicks, they are a punk band that I’ve been meaning to see for about two years now. They are somewhat similar to the Lawrence Arms. It should be a really great show. I just hope I get there early enough to get a good spot because the sight lines at Subterranean are pretty bad.

August 24, 2010 – The Wooden Birds @ Schubas

I really don’t know much at all about this band. I know the guy in this band used to be in American Analog Set but that’s about all I know.

August 28, 2010 – The Rural Alberta Advantage @ Schubas

I really like the RAA. They are a poppy Canadian indie band with a focus on the drums. I saw them at Schubas last September and I saw them earlier this year at SXSW. The show at Schubas was really awesome because the band came down from the stage and performed in the crowd for their last song. I haven’t bought a ticket yet but I’ll probably go to this show.
