11/4 Gogol Bordello @ Mr. Small's
I've seen these crazy gypsy punks four times now, always at large festivals - twice at Lollapalooza, once at Bonnaroo and once at All Points West. I can't imagine how their manic energy would blow the roof off a small venue.
ALSO WORTH ATTENDING:
11/2 Frightened Rabbit @ Diesel
Frightened Rabbit were one of the highlights of Lollapalooza 2010 with their soul-baring sorrow and surprisingly catchy melodies.
11/7 Bob Dylan @ Petersen Events Center
With Dylan these days, there are more bad days than good. But every once in a while you get that really amazing performance. Perhaps this will be the one.
