In my exhaustive research for the noiseletter this week I came across that horror of horrors: a double booking. Two dope gigs at the same dope spot on the same dope night. Now, I spend every waking minute worried I might be upsetting someone, somewhere, and not a few sleeping minutes doing the same. I almost didn't say anything because I was sitting on some quite upsetting news that I seemed to be the first to notice, and blowing that whistle would trigger a real sad react, which is exactly what I don't want. Gotta do the hard things sometimes as a noiseletter writer. As these things often go, two gigs entered and one gig left. SAD! 

Someone really oughta make a spreadsheet.

The Tet Offensive
This will be the fourth time this band has done a full album cover of Nevermind and I can never make it and I really want to hear the ten minutes of silence before 'Endless, Nameless' because I love when people put special secret bonus tracks at the ends of things. Wink.

Valley Queen (CA), Fiction, Big Fang
When you're at the Irish bar and they're singing 'The Irish Rover' and they get to the line about 'the ship lost her way in a fog' you're supposed to yell out 'BIG FOG' because like music is supposed to be fun and that's what I think about whenever Big Fang (or 'BIG FANG') comes up. Anyhoo, here's some rock bands.

Bush Tetras (NY), Shirese
The BT's copy sez 'jittery mixture of raw nerves and repulsion' which could just as well go for their local support, who are increasingly less reclusive and bully for them on that front.
