by Tim McMahan,

I remain on the road, speaking at a Social Media conference in Philadelphia. All you SM wonks can follow along on Twitter at #CSMB2B. Or you could. The conference just ended, and I’m now cooling my heels at Philly International, which resembles a shopping mall more than an airport. I’m sitting in the food court next to Sbarro’s watching people carelessly toss away years of their lives eating the mucous-covered glop they call “pizza.”

Very unlikely that I’ll be home in time — or in the right state of mind — to enjoy tonight’s musical offerings. Chief among them is Night 2 of Lincoln Calling. For reasons known only to organizer Jeremy Buckley, the LC schedule isn’t at, but rather at the Lincoln Calling Facebook page. It’s also below:

If you don’t live in Lincoln or don’t feel like driving there, you’ve got a couple choice shows going on right in your back yard.

At The Waiting Room, it’s the return of Brother Ali. He’s grown quite a bit in popularity since I interviewed him in 2003. Opening is Blank Tape Beloved, Homeboy Sandman with DJ Sosa, & The Reminders. Unlucky $13, 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, down at The Slowdown, it’s the return of Dr. Dog, with Cotton Jones. $15, 9 p.m.
