3 bands + 5 bones = Good deal in bad economy

Say what you will about CD101 but they do bring great deals to their listeners (and even their non-listeners) in Columbus. A couple of upcoming $5 low dough shows – particularly nice in this thing they’re calling a recession – featuring some major label bands and a couple of up-and-comers.

Wednesday night’s show at The Basement (391 Neil Ave.) features The Duke Spirit, Eulogies, and The Black Fortys and while it won’t be as wall-to-wall packed as this week’s Fallout Boy show, expect a great turnout.
