30 Bands in 60 Minutes
Presented by the Neo-Futurists at The Metro, May 27 ($16). Jay and I had a good time when we saw this show a few years ago. Not unlike Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, some acts were great, some sucked, but all were really fast.

The speed is the spectacle if you're new to this format. After 30 Bands in 60 Minutes, you can mock your friends' band that takes 45 minutes to set up amps, pedals, wires, drums, and a children's choir at 1am. (They know who they are, no need to name names.) Watch these bands plug in and play: soundchecks are for wimps.
