Check out Forget, Forget’s Album Release with Cape Cannons, The Empty & Super Psychle at Empire tonight

Alright, I gotta be super straight up with you guys. It has been a very, very long week for your girl Nunz. Doing some very, very good work with my radio fam to gather donations to send down in a 53’ long tractor trailer truck to the Houston Food Bank to help those affected by the hurricane. It’s extremely rewarding and necessary work, but I’ll tell ya getting up at 4am and working straight through until 6pm makes ya mighty tired. I did my best this week to keep up with my duties as Bilbo Bloggins, but Fridays are always massive music days and even though I was able to find a lot of shows to share with you all, I just don’t have the brain capacity to write proper previews for each event. I hope you’ll at least be able to gather some insight into what’s shakin’ tonight by reviewing this listing of shindigs that I’ve thrown together during Hour 15 of my day. …Actually, I’m writing to you from the past! Spooky! JUST KIDDING, I wrote this last night. I’m a dweeby dumb-dumb. Anyway, HERE WE GO!
