Happy Monday. Hope everyone had a great weekend; I sat inside and pounded the FTP pavement as I backed up files and copied and pasted all weekend. Good stuff.

Damian Kulash from OK Go will be guest-bloggin’ at Coolfer for the next week or so. A friend of a family member was in this band for a while. They’re playing the Metro this Friday night…

and Jake Cinniger from Umphrey’s McGee just announced their 3rd Annual Christmas Party show. They’re playing an acoustic show at on December 14, and $5 from each ticket will benefit Keys-4-Kids. I’m going and I’ll be bringing back one very excellent review.

Download Tortoise’s Saturday night late-show at the Metro. I was going to go but I would have never made it up that late. I should have napped, but I imagine that the show was pretty excellent.
