Few things can rip me away from baseball, especially fall baseball, but the Sci-Fi Channel had something great on tonight -- Back To The Future. It's a movie so good that I've probably watched it over 100 times. And although my beloved Baltimore Orioles are way out of the playoff race as usual, my hometown Phillies have been red hot as of late and are now in the lead for the NL Wild Card with one week left in the season.

Lots of shows are going down this week, and this weekend should be pretty crazy with NEMO going on, and I've picked and choosed some of the better shows, but if you want the full list, you will have to go the website.

09.30: Ladytron/CSS @ Avalon
Despite Ladytron being around for years, I have yet to see them and when a band is on their third album, they are normally owning the moment and totally confident. Sometimes electronic acts can falter live, but those things that may trip up others are strengths for Ladytron, a group that never forgets to add life to their music. Opening is the always ready to party CSS, who I missed when they played Great Scott over the summer, a show that was undoubtedly soaked in alcohol and sweat. I'll be there this time [$17.25; 7pm]
MySpace: Ladytron
Audio: "Seventeen [Soulwax Mix]"
