The Monday Show Low Down (Or "The Smoke Machine Gave Me A Sore Throat")

I'm still way behind with the site's show calendar beyond this week, but will catch up by Thursday's concert post. Sorry... The nice weather, the wonder that is The Gold Room, helping friends move, and God of War II can all dogpile up to do that to you.
