Interesting Gigs coming up

Thank goodness for the Canadian Virgin festival, it is bringing over UK acts leading to a sudden deluge of decent acts.
Forgive me for it seem like I have gone insane planning gigs. My most painful decision is that in all honesty I cant really skip work next week to go to see Sky Larkin in New York, oh why couldn't they play a Saturday?
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTT.We do get Does it Offend You, Yeah?, The Wombats, The Pigeon Detectives, Sons And Daughters, Laura Marling and Johnny Flynn, Stereophonics, Noah and The Whale, Glasvegas and last and by no means least - oh my God after years of waiting I actually get to see................
drum roll please......................
James! Despite what every American thinks the song we die to hear is Sit Down not Laid.
So something to look forward too.

and From The Jam at Foxboro on 9/23 - their show at the Blender in Feb was the best I have seen in years. September is looking great for Boston area shows topped off by the 'Ocean Rain' Bunnymen show in NYC on 10/1. You're in for a treat if you have not see James before. Last time I saw then was in front of about 50-75 guests at a private Lizard Lounge bash in 1997.

Mike, would love to know more. I am sitting on the fence about From the Jam as it will be horrendous to get there from the north shore. Also to be honest Paul Weller is just plain boring live i would hate to bust my ass to get to Foxboro to see something not amazing. can you email me more insights?
