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…

Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinniger from Umphrey’s McGee just announced their 3rd Annual Christmas Party show. They’re playing an acoustic show at Park West 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.
