I just spent a few days back home in Pennsylvania and while it was fun to see friends and family, I am glad to back to the normalcy of Boston. There's only a few more weeks until the end of year [and my annual two weeks of doing nothing], plus I'll have a little end of the year vacation to LA from Dec. 7th-10th. Besides holiday stuff, things have been pretty quiet -- the Orioles are still making awful moves and work is still busy as hell. As for shows this week, there are a ton of great acts coming through town -- everyone from Ghostface to Radio 4 to The Goo Goo Dolls are playing, and on top of that, locals The Bon Savants are dropping their debut album with two release shows at my favorite local haunt, Great Scott.

11.27: Forward, Russia!/Read Yellow @ Great Scott
These guys have graced this blog before, and this will no doubt be the last time. Their debut Give Me A Wall has quickly become one of my favorite discs this year, but the most enthralling thing about this group is their live show. I caught them once this year, playing an early evening set at SXSW, where they taught the indie kids how to dance, or at least unfold their arms and move around a bit! Since I love these guys so much, I have a pair of tickets to give away -- the show goes down tonight at 9 pm and it is 21+. Not sure what time everyone goes on, but that doesn't matter -- show up early and get a little bit of High Life in your system before the show! First one to e-mail me gets the tickets.
MySpace: iForward, Russia!
Audio: "Sixteen"
Audio: "Eighteen"
