Incoming: David Sedaris, Atticus Tour, Boys Like Girls, Skinny Puppy, Tech N9ne
contestants coming, and that's not the only big show coming in October, as Boys Like Girls, the Atticus Tour, and Tech N9ne all bring their shows through town. Still, the thing we're most excited about is not a concert but a speaking date by author David Sedaris in May. Sure, it's a ways off, but you'd be wise to line up tickets to see the Naked author Talk Pretty One Day (that day is May 1).
