No plans on the horizon? We’ve mapped out the next seven weeks with (mostly free) local shows from bands near and far — and, to whet your appetite, queued up the songs we hope are on their set lists.
Plus, we’ve got a pair of tickets to an NYC gig (Crystal Castles, Local Natives, Delorean, and more) for seven DailyCandy readers. To win, post on our Facebook page (you have to “like” us first) which show you want to see, along with your idea for the best band name ever. (Making us laugh goes a long way.)
