I've got a whole city to hold down

Summer season starts with a thud

The summer concert season of vapid shed shows, street-fair meat markets and heatstroke-inducing club gigs traditionally stretches from Memorial Day to Labor Day. But this year hardly opened with a bang. Sure it's early, but so far local stages and pages are remarkably bare.

All of which is one way of saying we're hard up for subjects today. So, dear readers, we're turning it over to you. Any new discs grabbing you? Underrepped acts rocking you? Undeserved hypes irking you? Good books absorbing you? Upcoming shows obsessing you? Have at it in the comments.
