Days of Summer Calendar



August 31: Will Ferrell, Jon Heder, and straight America have taken male-male figure skating away from us. Our only option is to take hockey away from them. Chill out at the Coors Cup, an all-gay hockey tournament at the Ice Centre in Westminster, Colo. For more details, log on to

September 1: VHS or Beta? Frankly, we'd choose NetFlix, but the Kentucky dance-rock trio who sport this moniker have released their third album, Bring on the Comets, a hook-soaked record of chunky guitar riffs, danceable disco grooves, and anthemic choruses. We look forward to the band's promised underground remixes of the apocalyptic, New Order'like track 'Burn It All Down.'

September 2: Bless the bigwigs at HBO for renewing two of our favorite series, slick sausage-fest Entourage and quirky musicomedy Flight of the Conchords, for next season. In the meantime, catch the shows' season finales. Yeah, all the dudes are heteros (ostensibly), but we still can't get that delightful Conchords scene in which Jemaine sings about spooning his band mate, Bret, out of our heads.
