    Eastern Youth with Cursive and The Blood Brothers - Friday, October 3; Mississippi Nights

    Sometimes it's better to be blissfully unaware. Take listening to music in foreign languages: Do you need to know what Serge Gainsbourg is saying to know that it's a little bit sexy and a whole lot sleazy? Do you need to know Portuguese to appreciate...

    South Side Rocks Off - Saturday, October 4; multiple venues

    Rumors are flying around behind the scenes at KDHX right now. But while the truth may be muddled about a lot of things, there are a few things that are for sure: 1. Community radio is a good thing. 2. KDHX knows how to hold a fundraiser. Tha...

    Radio Berlin - Saturday, October 4; Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center

    What the hell are rock musicians so happy about these days? Whatever happened to danceable music that makes you feel good about being gloomy? Why aren't more soundtracks for dramatic suicides being produced? Where have all the chorus pedals and synth...

    Frank Black and the Catholics - Show Me Your Tears (spinART)

    Long removed from his reputation-establishing work fronting the Pixies, Frank Black has watched his stature diminish terribly over the past ten years. While ex-bandmate Kim Deal went on to great success with her Breeders, the onetime indie-rock hero ...

    Television - Marquee Moon / Adventure (Rhino)

    Though Television emerged from the same NYC punk-rock milieu as Blondie and the Ramones, those bands often disregarded (or clearly fought against) technical proficiency. But Television was (gasp!) a Musically Accomplished Band, one that played with a...

    Thelonious Monk - Monk in Paris: Live at the Olympia (Thelonious Records)

    These days, it's a rare occurrence for an "important" record to be released. Of the six billion human beings on the planet, probably four billion are musicians after a fashion, recording and releasing all manner of sonic fluff. Since the record indus...

    Yo La Tengo - Thursday, September 25; Pageant

    With their 2000 album And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out, Yo La Tengo made the leap -- a small one, sure, and certainly not an unexpected one -- from critically acclaimed cult heroes to the elder statesband of indie rock. That's what happens i...

    Christopher O'Riley performs the music of Radiohead - Thursday, September 25; Sheldon Concert Hall

    The purpose of music is to lift the listener from one state of mind into another. By the simple act of creating sounds in patterns, musicians have the ability to induce states of mind, transporting the listener to any number of inner destinations. Un...

    Aerosmith - Sunday, September 28; UMB Pavilion

    Let's build the case right now: Aerosmith has a lot to answer for. Start with those horrible bandana-bedecked mic stands, the ones that every lame blues-metal chump imitated throughout the '80s. Move right along to their central role in the dubious f...

    Best Rock Club - Rocket Bar

    The appeal of the Rocket Bar can be summed up in six little words: "That is a damn high stage." And it's cramped, too. When Trans Am played in the spring, there was barely enough room for them to hand off instruments to one another, and there are onl...

    Best Bartender - Roxanna Ratossa Modesto

    Tangerine hasn't been the same since Roxanna Ratossa -- she of the sharp wit, sexy disposition and totally hot cigarette-stained voice -- left last year; a whole row of fawners were heartbroken. Some -- gasp! -- turned to drink and ended up sauced at...

    Best Club to Close in the Past 12 Months - Galaxy

    All right, the closing of the Galaxy wasn't really all that bad -- more of a mercy killing, really, after it limped and staggered through the last year. But don't remember the Galaxy as a Clear Channel outlet with a poor sound system and a stage faci...

    Best Bouncer - Barry Currie The Pageant

    This is the way Barry Currie does it at the Pageant, where he is a doorman and bouncer: Spotting trouble, be it a malcontent or miscreant, he puts on his best face and assumes a calm disposition, one that comes very naturally to him. He's like that h...

    Best Place to Play Darts - Screamers

    From the outside, this south-side pub could be the city's ugliest bar. It takes more than a little gall to paint the name of your business in lemon yellow on cheap-looking bright-blue siding. It's like something from a bad acid trip. But ignore the g...

    Best Punk-Rock Venue - Creepy Crawl

    Most of us have the good sense to not eat near the toilet. Unsanitary! Smoking cigarettes near gas pumps is a bad idea. Unsafe! How about letting a thousand or so hardcore bands play in your living room every day of the year? Unthinkable. There's a t...

    Best Place to Play Pinball - CBGB
