Holy crapola, Emo’s has a pretty tasty little lineup for you music fans on Monday evening.  First up, on the outside stage, you’ve got crazy good live band King Khan & The Shrines along with The Fresh and Onlys and The Strange Boys.  Then inside you’ve got The Wedding Present and Ringo Deathstarr.  Not too sure if you can go between the outside and inside stage for this one, but it’s worth a try.  If only it wasn’t on a Monday…

So maybe The Secret Machines have fallen a bit on hard times with the critics, but does that mean they can’t bring the house down with a live show anymore?  I think not.  Head over to Emo’s on Wednesday night for one of these face melting shows from this once time Dallas based band.  Openers will be Ringo Deathstarr and Imaad Wasif.
