100 shows

So my whole thing is to go to a hundred shows this year, but I may well have to up the ante. It rounds out to be about 2 shows a week, but given that I work at a venue (the Marquis) and that Pete's actually gets interesting shows (Pena/the Photo Atlas/Ghost Buffalo) I may easily bypass the hundred mark. Plus the three festivals, Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, and ACL. I pretty much am gonna see every band you'd want to see this year (except for probably Sufjan Stevens- but I've made my mind up that if he tours again I will travel to see him). Here's a record of where I'm at as of May 24th. These are just the bands I actually saw, not the entire show lineup.

At the end of the year I'll do a whole roundup type deal. I need to hit 50 by end of June, but that shouldn't be too hard. I'm at 39 now, but in the next week we have four shows, Horns, Facing New York, Frog Eyes, and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness. Should be fun.
