CMJ is in town and the folks at Fontanas decided they'd rather make some money and keep the bar open than watch us all grab-ass around while the Bruins and the Sabres skate around on the TV.
So shave off that soul patch or somebody might mistake you for a music journalist (more on the hazards of being mistaken for a music journalist below.)
Not to worry, though, Dave Guadalahorowitz and Rev. Timmy will be flying the Hockey Night in Chinatown flag high. But they'll be up in the DJ booth in the back, not conveniently perched in front of the TV at the bar (with Fontanas opening it's doors to the public, they thought it best to have the boys, you know, concealed.)
Come on by though, there is a good chance you'll get to see Dave and Rev. Timmy force feeding some poor sophomore from Northwestern the entire CD catalogue of Teenage Fanclub or Pavement while cranking Astroqueen at bone-rubberizing volume.
At least until the F'tanaz folk tell 'em to cut it out.
In fact, misdemeanor assault is so likely that they're not even taking bets at the OTB (they're also not giving action on Rev. Timmy falling down the stairs or spilling beer on someone.)
So slip on that Arcade Fire T-shirt, make sure you've got your favorite badge holder thingy to wear around your neck and slack your way down to...

Saké Mike dug up some stuff to help keep those music scribblers at bay.
That's his home town buddy Scott Carlson on the bass there (we think.)
Careful, this website will laugh at you. Or scream at you.
It's just like Hockey!
It is if you do it right, anyway.
Oh! Right! Hockey! Here's Sid the Kid's 100th goal, 200th assist and 300th point.
The bank is open!
