Rocktober and its baseball-impeded insanity of great touring band after great touring band is over. Of course, just because the calendar turns doesn't mean the schedule has dried up: This weekend's offerings include local release shows by Britches and the Campfire Club and a punk show down by the river (you'll just have to find someone who knows...). And the out-of-town docket includes home-state heroes Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, which is a seriously great band, Dr. Dog and some guy who likes to play play pi-ano.
