This week's entertainment picks: Jonathan Richman, Ra Ra Riot

With so many great things happening in the city, how is one to choose?  Not to fret, that's what I'm here for.  Try out:

Jonathan Richman, Revival, Oct 5-6th
Whether it's his work with proto-punks The Modern Lovers, or his quirky adorable solo stuff, I can't get enough of Jonathan Richman.  I think "Everyday Clothes" is one of the most simple, heartfelt, geek-love songs ever.

Ra Ra Riot w. Dinosaur Bones, The Phoenix, Oct 6th
I love Ra Ra Riot.  Two albums in and I'm smitten with their indie art rock.  Locals Dinosaur Bones have received lots of hot press too, though personally I'm not sold yet.
