The curse of Nelly's "Hot in Herre": since that summer in 2002 when the song came out, every time somebody says, "man, it's hot in here", there's a decent chance some goon will instinctively say, "so take off all your clothes!". Shhhh! Anyways, Jenny Owens Youngs, who comes to Bottom of the Hill on Friday, also sings that cursed song kind of sweetly, acoustic-style. Yeah, acoustic covers of rap songs... here are a couple lists/threads with boatloads of them, in case you're interested: list one and list two.

Also, we'll be checking out Iron & Wine on Wednesday, snapping some photos and checking Sam Beam's beard for stray bits of food.

Select list of shows around the city, after the jump...
