Mike Dreams, Dada Trash Collage featured in this week's City Pages
It's Wednesday. Hump day. Time to shuffle down to the neighborhood coffee shop and pick up the latest issue of City Pages or peruse the latest print articles on our website to see what's new. This week, we've got a couple of local music items that feature artists we've never written about here on Gimme Noise -- so if you're looking to find some new local music, this week's paper is a good resource. Here's a rundown of what you'll find in the print music section.
