Mister Kotter, I know it's early and all, but I just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be late the day of the Chevelle show. And by late I mean not here at all. But I've got a note...

Mister Kotter, I know it's early and all, but I just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be late the day of the Chevelle show. And by late I mean not here at all. But I've got a note...

As you might imagine, while we were pulled away from regular duties to put last weekend’s FourFourFest together a thing or 20 might have happened in the local music scene that we weren’t able to tell you about. Not until now, anyway. It turns out that while we were planning one big show local venues were planning, oh, about 30-plus. How’s that for being outworked?! We’ve culled a list together of the big-deal shows coming to a local stage in the next couple of months to get you up to speed. (Note: We’ve listed the fullest schedule we know for them, but some still have openers to be announced, so stay tuned for updates as some shows get closer.) Some you’ll probably be aware of; others may be news to you. Either way, get a note from your parents and plan to skip a class or two. Reasons why after the break.

Parkway Drive, Stick To Your Guns and My Children My Bride coming to Outland Ballroom April 17

January 28, 2009

parkwaydrivetourEven we’re a little taken aback by this one. Getting My Children My Bride back for a follow-up show two months after playing Springfield February 24 is pretty cool, but done before–Forever Endeavor scored similar back-to-back shows last year with Murder By Death, for example–but Stick To Your Guns? And Parkway Drive?! Parkway Drive!!! We even break out the rarely used multiple-exclamation point for this. We weren’t in attendace the last time PD came to Springfield, but we’ve heard things… amazing things. This has all the potential of being the hard-rock must-see of 2009. We’ve got a whole lot more about it after the break.
