That Band You Really Want To See is Touring the US!
The tour kicked off last week in your hometown. In fact, that night you were sitting around arguing with people on the internet, they were playing that small club you like so much. Those people you wish you got to see more often were probably there. I bet you could find some pictures of the show on Flickr. People probably had a lot of fun.

Oh, but wait! They're going to swing back to the US after touring Europe. No, no, never mind, their next stop in your town is that weekend you're going out of town to do something obligatory but boring.
