Weather-wuss and the week ahead…

Someone recently called me a weather wuss. He said that I won’t venture out to shows unless the weather is absolutely perfect (This coming from a guy who is a veritable hermit, who rarely ever goes to shows himself).

Regardless, he’s partially right. I typically won’t go to shows when the temps are sub-zero — especially those that require lots of walking from venue to venue, which is why I didn’t go to the OEAA showcase this weekend, nor to any other show. Go ahead, call me a wuss.

That said, it’s easy to be a wuss this week because there’s not much going on until Cursive’s Day 2 event at The Waiting Room Thursday night. Seriously, it’s a dead week for shows. O’Leaver’s bails out the weekend with Pro-Magnum on Friday night and Doneofits Saturday night.  Beyond that, it’s a ghost town, my friend.

Use your spare evenings this week to catch up on your Christmas shopping, compile your year-end best-of lists or simply stay warm and dream about next spring. Hell, it ain’t even winter yet…
