The 20 Best Show Announcements of the Week

Those summer dates are starting to fill up faster and faster each week, and it looks like the coming season will be a great one for live music. The most talked about announcement this week, however, was a actually a three way tie between Too Short and E-40 at Trees, The Mountain Goats at Dan's Silverleaf, and Charles Bradley at the launch party for Do214. Now imagine if they all walked into a bar together, oh the possibilities.
