The Last Full October Week In The Baltimore Region

October is coming to an end and we will be lucky to top 60 degrees this week, but there is good news. There are so many shows this week, that I don't even know where to begin. I will say that some of the weekend shows are part of DAM Festival.

The week starts off on Monday, with San Francisco's Hudson Bell at The Talking Head. DC9 has Deleted Scenes, Headlights and Stamen & Pistils. Tuesday night brings Mojave 3 to Black Cat.

On Wednesday, The Oranges Band will be at The Talking Head, with Squaaks. Black Cat has Tilly & The Wall, Love Is All and Pony Up.

Thursday is where the real fun begins. The Rapture and The Presets will be at 9:30 Club. The Black Cat has The National, joined by Nethers and Devastations. The Rock 'N Roll Hotel has The Gray Kid. There is a great show at DC9, featuring Cold War Kids, Soft Complex, The Oranges Band and Bellflur.

On Friday, The Dresden Dolls and The Red Paintings play 9:30 Club. Longwave, Falcon, Travis Morrison and Hopewell take over The Rock 'N Roll Hotel. Velvet Lounge has Let's French and The English Department. For those that want a change of pace, Madeleine Peyroux is at Lisner Auditorium.

Things definitely do not slow down on Saturday. Ben Lee takes over at Ram's Head Live. Lady Sovereign brings the flow to 9:30 Club. The Wrens, Plus/Minus and Palomar play Black Cat, where Girl Talk will also be spinning. General Miggs plays Hamilton Arts Collective, while The Red and The Black has The Payola Reserve, The Eames Era and The Rewinds. DC9 has a packed bill with De Novo Dahl, Bound Stems, Bishop Allen, Pela and Forget Cassettes.

Sunday has Favourite Sons and The Drones at Black Cat. The Talking Head has a CMJ Preshow featuring The Mall, Casper & The Cookies, Decibully and Peter & The Wolf. 9:30 Club has The Decemberists and Lavender Diamond for the first of 2 sold out shows. The same bill plays on Monday October 30.

That should do it. If I missed something, let me know. Get out there and support someone. There has to be somebody that you like this week.
