Boy howdy, after an exhausting week (and by week, I mean month-and-a-half) I just may lay low this weekend and stone cold chill in front of the cable and turntable. With November ratings month ending last week, which bled into this monster mess of a storm we've all been slamming like mad here in News.

I think my contribution to the 'Scene' this weekend may just fall outside our fair burg - since the folks in Vernonia, Mist, the Coast and all over western Washington need a lot of help.
And I can get rid of some stuff at the same time to give someone who might really need it. here's a link on how to donate.

Onto the weekend reccomendations:

At Dantes, you loved Reload, his work is well known as the asst. medical examiner for an unnamed county, it's THE PUNK GROUP!

Hey man, they know DEVO.

At Slabtown the never stopping and indie-riffic WOW and FLUTTER play with:
The Ax
Rollie Fingers
The Ramjac

I have to mention this next one cause my bass player is in this (GRATEFUL DEAD) cover band.
45th street pub hosts Ramblin' Rose. They're tight. And come on, if you are a TRUE music nerd, you have a Dead affiliation, in the closet or not. It's now officially cool to even admit it.

Saturday sees the Altarboys at Ash street saloon. Oi, it's grit, it's punk, it's loud barroom rawk.

Over at Dantes, a rock-a-hillbilly hellcat line up with not one bad moment on this bill:
Wayne the train Hancock
Jesse Dayton
Blackout Radio
Hellbound Glory
