A month of shows

Some September shows - of course, there are tons of weekly ones, like Chicks and Giggles and Oh Hello and many more I have no clue about. If you have a special show or details about yours, send them to me (ideally this weekend) and I'll try to add them here. Also, please note that these were cobbled together via emails, show sites, MySpace pages, etc., so check official venues for details though they should be accurate, as far as I know.
