Wednesday, we are welcoming Faun Fables home from their recent tour in Austria and Switzerland. They will be playing with Australian legend, Daevid Allen (which we here is Faun Fables' dream - Hooray for dreams coming true).

If you aren't into great Australian pop songs, then you can always check out the overplayed-yet-still-talented emo stars, Plain White T's and Fall Out Boy headed to the San Jose Events Center on Thursday night. Okay, okay, if you don't want to spend your Thursday night with 13 year-old girls then be sure to see Luce, a five-piece band from San Francisco. Word is, they will be featuring some new music on Thursday night.

The weekend offers several different favorites starting with Friday: Iron & Wine and Califone over in Oakland and Voxtrot (watch "Firecracker" here) and Division Day at Bimbo's. We will be partying it up with local bands: Cold Hot Crash (Live 105's 2006 Local Band Winner), Elephone, Built for Sea, and The Hundred Days. They will be featuring songs from their latest compliation, A Foggy Holiday. This seems to be the perfect way to start off the holiday season and support some great local bands.

Saturday night, we'll be at The Independent seeing our first show of L.A. based band, Great Northern (who are supporting Soulsavers.) Earlier this month, we sent a lucky winner to their show, but they are back and this time it's not to be missed.
