Fall music preview: Cut the shit, summer, let’s talk fall shows

August 12, 2013

A friend of mine once said that our tastes in music are as arbitrary as our favorite flavors of ice cream. Yes, completely arbitrary and frequently changing, and I guess if that’s true, that makes musicians the emperors of ice cream. That’s a fine allusion for summer, but if you’re as over sweating this season out like I am, you’re likely already looking ahead to fall. Let be be finale of seem, I suppose, but here are the shows that are making me impatient to wrap summer’s flowers in old newspapers already.
