Wow – this past week has been insane with concert announcements and I must admit that I have been a little bit preoccupied with freaking out about Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds coming to the Jubilee on June 27 ( check my other blog post on this for a chance for presale ticket action! ) to realize that there are some other great bands coming to town too! Here’s a rundown:
