In spite of our desire to find cool things to do in Connecticut, this weekend our sexy neighbors beckon, and if you have a tank of gas to play around with, we suggest taking a drive and checking out any of the following:
Finland's Children of Bodom bring an air of rock stardom to every live performance. Their oft-deployed sense of humor saves them from any accusations of cheesiness for their guyliner or other goth posturing, and their playing is simply dazzling. Who else would hear a speed metal song in Creedence Clearwater Revival?
And now for something completely different - indie rock legends! In our favorite town for meeting girls and eating... vegetables!
Newer, contemporary, hipsterly indie. We'd hit that.
