The Rundown, 3/17-3/26 + Sick on St. Paddy's Day [3/17/2008 03:50:00 PM]:
Dammit, dammit, dammit. I hate to admit it, but I tend to ignore all the emails I get from what look like crappy dance clubs, and sometimes it bites me in the ass. Like now, since I just bothered to look at one email & discovered that Talib Kweli, of all people (the non-Mos Def half of the excellent, excellent Black Star, if you don't know), was in town this past Friday night, acting as "celebrity host" and DJ over at Level. Crap...

On top of that, today's St. Patrick's Day, the one day a year where I get to flaunt my relative Irishness and subject others in my family to unforgivable amounts of The Pogues, The Chieftains, Black 47, and the Dropkick Murphys...and yet, all I want to do right now is go home and sleep for three days. Just my luck -- it's Irish People Day, and I get sick. The day before I'm due to finally catch Gogol Bordello here in town, no less. Argh.

Anyway, I'm afraid this is gonna have to be briefer than usual. All the below are good, good, good shows upcoming, and I wish I could keep my head upright long enough to write glorious paeans to each. Here's about all I can do for the moment -- I'll try to elaborate when I can, but after I post this, I'm going home, darnit:
