I tend to veer away from news stories, but this past week was particularly weird, and I'm not even including what happened in Cleveland.
How about the lunkhead who suspended second graders for pointing deadly weapons at each other (aka number 2 pencils) and making gun like noises? These kind of stories make me talk back to the radio when I'm all alone in the house. What are they going to do next? Take little boys fingers away?
And did you hear about the three guys who attempted to steal an ATM from a Potomac bank? What were they thinking? Is no one going to notice a back hoe loading an ATM into the bed of a pick up truck? And what the heck do you do with it when you get that sucker home?
Even if you could steal one without anyone noticing, a backhoe couldn't carry all the musicians playing around town this Saturday night. Take a look at DC ROCKS' calendar and pick your poison from the Loggers at Maggie's to the Hula Monsters at Quarry House. And don't forget Doug Stevenson and the Spades, Kid Goat and Jelly Roll Mortals at the Pinch. And more. You don't have to break into an ATM to afford FREE LIVE MUSIC.
