with februaries like these...

and while we are talking collanders and calendars, here's, as best as i can pull together right now, a list of modlins-recommended shows for the month of february. with friends like these, i'll only have to figure out what to do with 15 of the next 26 days, because almost half of this month is already filling up with rock. here's what i got, here's to being happy, let me know if i missed anything.

wed 2/6 - joanie + secretaries / the fascination / emery byrd @ u31 (free)
thu 2/7 - the vision of a dying world / the paddle boat @ tnt mcasd (free-ish)
fri 2/8 - transfer's cd release @ the casbah, with apes of wrath / holy rolling empire / the sea of cortez ($12)
mon 2/11 - swim party / talkdemonic / a.m. vibe / f.u.z.z. @ casbah anti-monday league ($7)
wed 2/13 - hot hot heat / louis xiv / editors @ hob ($25)
wed 2/20 - red feathers / the paddle boat / the sessions @ u31 ($5)
fri 2/22 - swim party / silverbird @ the whistlestop (free)
sat 2/23 - secret apollo / drowning men / more tba @ tower bar (free? $3? $5?)
sun 2/24 - frantic romantic / get your death on / war stories / inigo @ casbah fm 94/9 tim pyles sunday night (free)
mon 2/25 - red pony clock / old man hands / bad weather california @ the che ($5)
fri 2/29 - the modlins / syndicate / repeater @ the ken club (free!)

11 shows, 34 bands, $54ish in cover charges, ~ 214 miles of driving round trips from my apartment to the venues @ 24mpg @ $3 / gallon = $26.75 in gas, assuming i can hold myself to $10/night at each place = $190.75

renaming february 2008 februaROCK = priceless.

ok in hindsight maybe i could do better than "februaROCK," but you get the idea...
