Setting concert priorities for October

As you might guess, Laramie weather turns unpredictable this time of year. This week we went from flip-flops to boots. Last night I could smell the chimneys on my evening walk, keeping everyone cozy for the 30 degree night.

What does this have to do with music? Around about now, we Laramigos need to think carefully about what shows warrant a 2 hour drive south to Colorado in possibly (likely) crappy conditions.

So please, take a look at the list below, and tell me what I cannot miss. And what I'm forgetting.

October at the Larimer Lounge offers many pleasures:

10/9 Earl Greyhound
10/12 Dr. Dog
10/13 White Rabbits
10/19 Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter
10/20 Earlimart
10/23 Caribou
10/27 Kinski
