The Monday Show Low Down (Or "We Reserve The Right To Refuse Service To Everyone...")

Last Friday at Bordello w/ The Movies, The Happy Hollows, and The Savages was one of those nights that felt more like a party than just a regular show -- and it looks like we're in store for an entire fucking week like that.

So forget about catching up on the latest episodes of John Adams and/or Battlestar Galactica because over the next few evenings, you're going out...
