Hey there everyone, I’m really f’n sick. I haven’t been able to eat much of anything since Thursday. I’m going to take a few extra days to recuperate so I won’t be updating MCOM this week. I’ve included links to performances by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Andrew Bird, Nirvana, Wilson Pickett, STP, TVOTR, Urge Overkill and The Verve, hopefully those will tide you over until I return. Sorry about the lack of setlists, I can guarantee all eight shows are well worth your time. Download ‘em and judge for yourself. Leave a comment for others and let them know what you think, if they should download a show or not, and explain why (wow, that really sounds like a book report, didn’t mean to make it seem like homework).

Next week will focus entirely on my all-time favorite band, Pearl Jam, in honor of the re-release of Ten. Enjoy this week’s music and I hope to see you all back next week for a week long celebration of Pearl Jam!

Did anyone see Watchmen this weekend? If so, what did you think? Is it as good, better, or worse than the book? Leave a comment, let me know what you think about it. I'm curious to see the supposed "Director's Cut" that's rumored to be released (possibly) in theatres this July.
