TGIF, Boston. On today's Accents we highlighted a bunch of shows around town, playing entirely homegrown bands playing shows either tonight, tomorrow, or Sunday. We moved the goalposts twice near the end to accomodate our Boston Accents Songs of the Day and get some some Passion Pit in the mix, but they're still Boston bands playing shows, just Florida and Michigan, respectively. That counts for something. Have a great weekend; see you at Aerosmith in Allston on Monday.
