Punk Blues (with a live Burlesque show)
If you're into a night of B&B, blues and burlesque, this would be the most interesting live show of the week to check out.  Think of this band as Moulin Rouge meets The White Stripes meets Reverand Horton Heat.  This is a band based out of Vancouver and The Voodoo Dollz is the name of the live burlesque troupe that performs while Big John Bates plays.  They will be playing at The Frequency at 9PM on September 14th.

9/16  Tantric w/Burn Halo and Adema The Annex, 9pm, 18+, $14/$17 more info
Hard Rock
A night of hard rock might be good for the soul.  If you're in the mood to get your alternative metal on, you could run down to The Annex at 1206 Regent Street.  This band released an album last year called "Mind Control" that was produced by Brett Hestla of "Creed."
9/17  Bascom Hill and Mark Croft High Noon Saloon, 9:30pm, 21+, more info
Pop Rock
It's hard not to like the name of this band if you come from Madison and they provide some very interesting music as well.  You should check out their hit song "My World (Sucks to be You)."  And to top off the song, the music video features the great Lou Ferrigno and features the members playing tennis with guitars.  You can check these guys out at the High Noon Saloon on Friday, September 17th at 9:30pm.

Alternative Rock/Punk
Gaslight Anthem will put on a great show and they have some new music with a third album "American Slang" that was released in June of this year.  The band formed in New Jersey and they exude an east coast vibe that transcends the Jersey shore and mixes in a thicker western folk to their rich sound.  They will be at the Majestic Theatre at 115 King Street on Sunday, September 19th at 7:30PM and are definitely worth checking out.
