The Monday Show Low Down (Or “We Do What We Must Because We Can...”)

While I missed more shows than I caught last week cause of work, it was still a pretty amazing concert run just between seeing Bob Mould play the loudest acoustic performance I’ve ever seen at The Roxy and watching The Happy Hollows practically end the world at The Wiltern.

But this week? It could be even better.
