Welcome back to the Current Forecast playlist! Every Tuesday Current Magazine is putting together a playlist of the live music acts coming to town over the next week.

It is a bit of a slow week here in Washtenaw County for live performances, but there are still a handful of solid acts to find.  Melodic rock band The Bronzed Chorus kicks the week off tonight at Club Above.  Hardcore punk band Aggro or Die is coming to town on Thursday October 6th at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, promising an intense and chaotic performance.  Calming folk band Hoots and Hellmouth will be slowing things down on Friday October 7th at the Ark.  Finally, Desmond Jones is coming in from Grand Rapids to perform at the Blind Pig on Saturday October 8th.

Make sure to check back next week to see who is coming to town!
