Hey, all. This is a last-minute request, and may not be very helpful, but I'm looking for pretty much any show going on this saturday, may 17th, 2008.

I'm going to be traveling from Virginia to Illinois and plan on stopping somewhere in between for the night. I'd like to stop somewhere interesting to split up the drive and crash for the night, and I figure that somewhere with a good show going on is just as good of an idea as any.

I'll be driving through:

Charleston, WV
Lexington, KY
Louisville, KY
Indianapolis, IN
Champaign, IL

I'm trying not to go too far out of the way, but the following cities are along alternate paths that don't take too much longer:

Columbus, OH
Cincinnati, OH
Bloomington, IN

And of course all the small cities I don't know of. Any help is appreciated. I'm mainly looking for any resources that might have a calender of shows since I don't know how many people actually live near these cities, but if you happen to live near there and feel like offering up a place for me to crash that night, that's awesome and even better if there's a show going on that night as well.

Go figure... they don't have a slew of local punk shows listed on a national ticket-selling website...

There's always something in Columbus, but I'm not sure what this weekend.
I'm not a punk rock hero and you're no fairy princess, just 'cause you're beautiful and I've got a stupid haircut.
Well it's not exactly in your path, but I'm going to a battle of the bands in Milwaukee and there's supposed to be some really good punk/ska bands there.

Can't say I'd recommend it though cause I don't really know anything about any of the bands
I'm sure there's something going on in Bloomington tonight, I just lost all my phone numbers for there. If you go to Columbus and walk around 14th st. where the punk houses are (i believe) you should find a party or at least a place to crash.
