Quick Picks

Week of September 1, 2004


Anybody who thinks the Lou lacks variety should check out these shows in quick succession: The Queers, who make pounding, caveman-simple punk songs with titles such as "Half Shitfaced" and "I'm Okay, You're Fucked" come to the Creepy Crawl this Sunday. Get up Monday, wash the grime off your face, and get down to the Ambassador to hear the sweet old-school R&B of Angie Stone. She's one of those fresh-faced soulsters who's more Delphonics than Usher (she had a kid with D'Angelo -- how's that for R&B cred?) Music doesn't get as different, or as fun, as these two acts.
