Lots of great stuff this month. My can’t-miss shows are Ted Leo, the National, Camera Obscura and Feist, and I’ll probably check out Badly Drawn Boy if I can get tickets. If you’ve never seen Daft Punk, Jesus Christ, what are you waiting for? As usual, I’ll be the handsome young gentleman with the notepad scribbling frantically, so feel free to say hi.
