The Rundown: Got a Fish in My Dish…

No time for the “real” Rundown today, sorry — there are many, many fine shows going on this weekend, but yours truly is totally swamped (and experiencing technical difficulties w/the site, to boot; argh…). I’m bound and determined, though, come hell or high water, to get my ass out of the house to see Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings play up at Walter’s. I know, I know — there are lots of other cool people playing, but dangit, how can it possibly get any better than a funkdafied, down-home, soul-singer lady who sings about how incredibly damn awesome it is to fry up and eat a fish you caught yourself? Answer: it can’t.

(My one dilemma, by the way: how the hell do I dress for this? Those who know me know I, uh, only own one suit and wear it very, very rarely, so…)

Sadly, for those of you who aren’t already going, well, you’re out of luck, ’cause it’s sold out. Sorry ’bout that. By way of a consolation prize, though, here’s a list of other almost-as-cool things you could do this weekend, should you choose to:
