It’s a good week for music in ‘cuse and I have to decide which show I’m gonna check out, perhaps all of them if I’m feeling saucy.

On the 21st over at Lost Horizon there’s a ska show featuring Reel Big Fish, Big D and the Kids Table, and Suburban Legends. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a time where east coast hardcore, ska, and fast and fun punk rock was the big thing but this is my kinda show. When I was in my teens in Northeast PA, this was the shit (probably just dated myself). The scene has definitely died down a bit and is not what it once was, but it’s good to see some of these bands still out touring. Tickets are $18.

If ska isn’t your thing and dubstep/electronica is, Westcott is the place to be on the 13th. Flux Pavilion with Cookie Monsta, and Brown and Gannon will be doing what they do. I was never a big dubstep or electronica guy to be completely honest, but from some of the stuff I listened to on the intrawebs – it’s pretty solid. Tickets are $25 bucks and the show starts at 9pm. If anything at least you can hit up Alto Cinco before, during, and after.

Maybe ska nor dubstep are your thing and you enjoy some heavy fucking metal. If that’s the case Attack Attack!, As the Sky Falls, Chains of Honor, and Evolutions are going to be at Lost Horizon on the 15th. Tickets are 15 bones.

I linked up some samples of as much of the music as I could find so you guys could get a taste, so hopefully something strikes a chord (GET IT?) and you find yourself at a show this week.

Maybe you don’t wanna go listen to music, that’s cool. Sometimes you don’t wanna spend money, I get it. If that’s the case.. Well. You’re kinda shit out of luck. There isn’t a whole lot more that I could find happening in the area this week… Unless you wanna go over to Shoppingtown Mall and check out the book sale at the library.

Slow week in ‘cuse it seems, perhaps the ‘Taste of’ festival was a real crazy and we need some recharge time. Fear not, I scowered the internet and found at least a couple things that are going on this week. I can’t promise they’re for everyone, but hey. Beggars can’t be choosers.

June 6th over at Lost Horizon on Erie you got Crossfade, Feeding Affliction, Silent Fury and Weaving the Fate playing. It’s only $13 in advance or $15 at the door. I’ve only recently heard Weaving the Fate at the Flogging Molly show last week – they were alright. For 13 bones, I’d go see this show. If you’ve never heard of any’em, just click their names – I’ve attached some muzak samples for your listening pleasure. It’s mostly hard rock that has some catchy hooks. It’s not the worst, especially when you’re stuck in ‘cuse.

So, while you’re over in Dewitt for the show at Lost Horizon, the post standard thinks you should go check out Mario and Salvo’s pizza. Apparently they are the best pizza in Syracuse. I’ve never been there, but I’ve had some decent pizza around these parts (I’m partial to Varsity), but the Standard thinks these guys are top tier. So maybe you should go out there and see if they really beat out Cosmos, Varsity, or Sardos. I’ll reserve judgement, but I think they have some hype to live up to.

If you’re out near Rochester or wanna take a ride to the Museum of Play, a new exhibit called Design Zone just got going. According to the website Design Zone is a “hands-on interactive and computer-based activities reveal how video game developers, music producers, roller coaster designers, and others use math to do amazing things. Feel the beat in a DJ recording studio, test a virtual roller coaster, create on-screen action in a video game design studio, and more.”

Good luck kids. I will not be at any of these places, I’m going to Hershey Park for the weekend. Yeah, be jelly.
