Hey all, she may not be from "'round these parts," but I wanted to post a quick note for a gig that slipped by our radar—mostly because the folks at Dante's seem to have launched it with some sort of radar-deflecting stealth technology.

Most, though, are thankful those unfortunate choices aren't immortalized online—unlike the ultra-permed, acid-washed image of Dan Reed inhabiting videos by his old band, the Dan Reed Networ...   More
