These guys: ain't nothin' to fuck with
​She's a real mixed bag, this week's just announced shows. As we head toward the holidays, the shows start to become more scarce and, oddly enough, full of more popular, well-known acts. Case in point: Ozzy Osbourne, The Tempations and Alice Cooper's annual Christmas Pudding show.

None, however, hold a candle to the upcoming December 8 Wu-Tang Clan show. Billed as a "reunion show" -- a difficult accomplishment since founding member/media darling Russell "Ol' Dirty Bastard" Jones passed away almost six years ago -- their Celebrity Theatre gig will be interesting, to say the least. While members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah have found recent success with solo albums (Cuban Linx Pt. II, Fishscale), other members have remained less active. That's not to say the clan -- eight members strong -- can rock their respective mics. It has been three years since their last album -- ten years if you want to count anything memorable, although "Gravel Pit" is hardly that -- but methinks they still have plenty left for their fans.

Joining the Wu with shows of their own are The Temptations, Styx and Cradle of Filth.
