Live & Local preview: 2009 Rammy Awards Show


How's this for service journalism? I'm giving you one more chance to find out about the opportunity of a lifetime â?? the chance to see the local concert of your lifetime, the 2009 Rammy Music Awards. Don't be one of those people who skips it only to later have to lie about it to their grandchildren about being there. Because there's no way your kids' kids are gonna understand why you passed up the opportunity to see Altus, Deadpool, Bombasta, the Heroine, Mexican Stepgrandfather, and Mexicans With Guns, all on the same stage (not at the same time), and all for FREE.

"Why weren't you there, grandpa?" Doe-eyed little Sally will ask you, confused. "I sure hope I didn't inherit your dumbass gene."

And one more reason to show: I'm reviewing the Mexicans With Guns show for next week's Live & Local. When everyone else reads the review, they'll be like "Yeah, I know. I remember how bad-ass that show was and you, Jeremy Martin, through the brilliance of your word poems, have brought all that amazingness back to my forebrain." But if you don't go, you'll be the one who's all like "Huh, what? Anybody catch that special episode of Smallville? My stuffed animals love that show!"

Don't be that guy.
