Woot woot! Ever since I posted that infomercial for The Gathering, I kind of haven't been able to stop thinking about Juggalo subculture. Initially it's hilarious; but the more you read about these people, the more depressed you become. It's an abject way of life. Anyway, if you're looking for a way to kill time before The Gathering, here are some shows that won't feature any sad-ass clowns with faux psychological depth:

Green Day w/Kaiser Chiefs at Sommet Center. You know, I tried out for my high school talent show with a version of "When I Come Around"--featuring a scorching albeit primitive version of Billy Joe's solo--so if they call me onstage to play, I'll totally be ready. Didn't make the talent show, btw.

Davila 666 w/JEFF the Brotherhood, Turbo Fruits, Heavy Cream & Natural Child at Springwater. Davila 666 are from Puerto Rico, and they make--according to Matt Sullivan--music that "Hover[s] somewhere between Nuggets-era garage rock and '60s power pop."

Max and the Wild Things w/Thunderbear, Adam Dalton & Sam Stewart Band at Café Coco. Something about basketball. Oh, and Max and the Wild Things aren't bad.

Frist Friday feat. The Super T Revue at the Frist Center.

Battery: A Metallica Tribute at Mercy Lounge.

Knowing Me Knowing You: An ABBA Tribute w/The Mothership: A Led Zeppelin Tribute at 3rd & Lindsley. Settling, once and for all, the great debate over who kicks more ass: Sweden or England.

India.Arie at the Ryman.

Casper and the Cookies w/Everything Now, Palm Threat & Ikaik at The End. I totally wrote a pick for this show when Darla Farmer were on the bill, but they dropped off, so I got nothing.

Atomic Garden w/Ampline, The New Depression & The Slow and Steady Winner at The 5 Spot.

That's all I had room for, but you can see the full list here. If we missed anything, let us know. Check back tomorrow, and have a good weekend, my ninjas.
