Oof. As the two hottest weeks of the year loom upon us, I hereby plan to become almost entirely nocturnal, only leaving my comfy dark basement once the sun has fallen. And then, boy howdy are we gonna have fun.

Jugs McGee (my trivia team) will be back in action and ready to reclaim our title at KBGA's trivia night, and afterwards we'll gloat at the Badlander, where a buncha punk bands, including the ever-classy Buddy Jackson, are playing a free show.
(Or you could do something much more literate and attend James Lee Burke's reading of his latest mystery. Whatevs.)
Amy Leach reads from Things That Are at Shakespeare. It is a really neat book, if I say so myself. And oh look: I really did say so myself.
FARMAGGEDON STARTS TODAY. Calapatra is unequivocally excited for this. I know various scruffy, long-haired individuals who are going for the whole four days; unfortunately I did not plan ahead well enough to do so.
Lessee. There's also Wailin' Jennys at the Top Hat, if you're in an Americana mood, or Turkuaz, a 10-piece "power funk" band playing a free show at the Palace. I know where my boots are scootin'. (Sorry.)
Friday! Friday! Gotta get down on Friday!
Hee hee. So there's Slightly Stoopid and Atmosphere at Big Sky Amphitheater, and the Celtic Festival in Caras Park, and the zillionth Osprey game of the season (accurate counting, yes). You do you.
Scenic drives and beer! These things are not supposed to mix, but, well, here's the Bitterroot Microbrew Fest in Hamilton. Get a DD.
And if ye should return on time, Strangled Darlings and Birds Mile Home play the Palace. (Butter had to cancel.)
The KBGA End of Summer Family Fair sounds pretty fun, even as someone who only cares for a good-for-nothing cat. Hang out on campus, enjoy campus stuff without all the fuss of being a student. Win.
