AMG Weekend Picks: Broken Social Scene, Please PleaseRock Me, The Dynamites and More!

[ 0 ] February 10, 2011 |

Hope everyone is doing fine battling the crazy “snow storm” we got last night. No? It’s pretty much all melted now? Oh well, it was pretty and unobtrusive while it lasted, which is all we can really ask for. Because that means nothing has been postponed/canceled and we can all go and rock out this weekend with no fear of icy roads or falling on our butts on the sidewalk. Hurrah! Also, this spring’s concert schedule is shaping up to be just insane, so get those wallets ready and check out the on sales at the bottom of this post.
