September Bands- my thoughts

Just wanted to write a quick note about September, that way when 'other' blogs post their Sept thoughts I wont seem bitter when mine is completely different.
September 1st the Paradise reopens and Boston gets to see how Marina and the Diamonds balance actual songs with hype. But a chance to see her in a small venue - not to be missed.
September 7th Telekinesis plays TT the Bears, we have been playing their first album to death and are looking to see this transfer to the flesh. Somebody still Loves you Boris Yeltsin is the headliner and their new album holds up.
On the 8th Hot Hot Heat and 22-20s play Middle East Downstairs, 22-20s are a bold bluesy rock band with some class tracks, we keep bumping into this band and they keep us smiling. Hot Hot Heat are a fun solid band and will entertain.
On the 10th The Charlatans play Royale, if of course there are no injuries, everyone knows their class tunes and the Royale is still relatively intimate.
On the 11th we are heading down to Providence to see Surfer Blood and the Drums, two very buzzy bands play Jerkys- again a good chance to see bands down and dirty.
On the 12th we will be seeing turbo Fruits, (be your own Pet minus Jemina pearl) at middle east upstairs.
Biffy Clyro, scottish rockers extraodinaire make it to Great Scott, electric live it will be a thrill to see them at such a small venue.
The 15th we travel to Londonderry, NH and back in time to see The alarm play the Tupelo Music Hall, a bit of a twee fun but these gigs are fun.
On the 22nd The Boxer Rebellion play Middle East Upstairs with The augustines- Pela's reincarnation as support.
The Boxer Rebellion were a huge hit at SXSW2010 and I look forward to seeing a more intimate performance here.
No not over yet
Klaxons return to Boston on Sept 24th and we will get to hear the new album, its not Great Scott but The Paradise can be just as much fun.
Sept 28th we see Best Coast recently lauded as NME's hope for the best new band around play with the just as loved Male Bonding also playing at Middle East Downstairs- who in their sane mind would miss this?
And last but in no mean least we get Foals and Esben and The witch playing The Paradise on Sept 29th. I love love love seeing Foals play live and seem to have been waiting with bated breath since they came off stage two years ago in Boston.
So a busy month but so MANY MANY great bands.
