So I should probably be taken out in the street and shot for not noticing and posting this sooner (thanks for the tip, Dave). Two of my current favorite bands are touring... together, and they are playing a club close enough for me to walk to. This is a glorious day. The dates and venues are as follows. Rejoice.

UPDATE: Ground Zero canceled the Minneapolis show. Why do they have to suck so hard? Is anyone in charge over there who is competent? I don't think so at all.
To the benefit of not me, Iris has added shows in Chicago and Detroit.
