Saturday night sure is busy in the city Highlight of course is Steve Ignorant and Paranoid Vision postponed album launch in the Voodoo Lounge. Unfortunately there’s a couple of other gigs that night which means a clash if you wish to see Alien She as they are in the Mercantile, and you could well wish to see Bitch Falcon too who are playing in the Workmans Club. At least the Buffalo Sunn gig in Whelans is late so you can catch that along with another if you have the stamina. They will just all have to play on the same bill at some stage to make up. As for m I will be at the launch og Steve Ignorants second record with Paranoid Visions
