Twitter’s weird, isn’t it?
Ever since I’ve gotten involved with it, I occasionally get an overwhelming urge to tell the entire world about how I just stubbed my toe. An hour later I get annoyed that with just one click I can find out what my friends are thinking/doing/eating and find myself wishing that cellphones didn’t exist and dial-up modems (56 k haha!) were still rudimentary.
The thing is, amidst the sludge, it can be an incredibly useful tool. As you’ve likely discovered, following bands and venues is a very easy way to find out about new releases and shows. And even though we might not update this blog every day, I’ve been trying hard to make sure our Twitter account is a constant presence, highlighting our picks for gigs of the day.
This is basically a very long commercial to say that if you’re on Twitter, ADD US! www.twitter.com/pilgrimsofsound
(If you search hard you can find my Twitter. Cat says it’s hilarious.)

I just updated our Show Listings page for the next few weeks. Nothing more because if you’re like me, Thanksgiving is the most important upcoming event at this point and my attention wavers when anyone mentions anything post-Turkey Day.
BUT OH! Tonight there is a very cool and very free show at the Plough and Stars.

So, I got an email from my dad the other day. My car insurance was very due and, being the caring dude he is, he wanted to be certain I hadn’t forgotten. The postscript, however, included a jibe at the fact that we haven’t updated this site since early October. Nothing like your parents to get you to take action; I have no good retort and so here I am, posting.
Let’s talk about tonight! Remember those choose-your-own-endings books where you chose option A or option B and option A had you turning to page 67 while option B made you turn the book upside down? That’s what this post is.
I give you three magical doors for your evening, on this Friday the 13th.
A. Go to Great Scott in Allston, see the Bon Savants play, and dance your little misunderstood heart out at The Pill. 9 PM, $5, 21+.
B. Find Gay Gardens for a good ole Allston house show. Bonezone (who I’ve never seen but really want to) are playing along with Gila Monster, Fat History Month, and Golden Girls. Fun starts at 7.30.
What happens next is up to you. Please report back if you chose to do any of these things and had a great/bad/okay time.
