I've been getting down with the Iron and Wine/Calexico disc, which is pretty good. Also the new Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, which I think might be better than Cold Roses . Is is possible he could go 3 for 3 this year? That is assuming they get the supposed 3rd album out before Jan. 1. Also, I can't ...

I suppose I must clarify. It's one thing for someone like Barabajagal to actively go to see someone who you are familiar with and expect to see something good only to be dissapointed and then walk out, or to know the other bands playing and choosing not to waste your time with them. I'm guessing tha...

People who would leave after seeing one band of a two band bill are the same people who spend money to go to concerts and talk the whole fucking time. It's all fine and good if you want to try to shout at each other during a set by Arcade Fire(just an example) I'm pretty sure the music will win that...

New Pornos is definately up there. No matter how hard I try I can't stop listening to Arcade Fire or Andrew Bird. Clap Your Hands... is keeping me interested longer than I expected as is the Bloc Party Remix album. As far as new stuff, I got a copy of Dangerdoom. It's really damn good, and the Adult...

Nope, no hurricane. When I first got down there, the projected path was directly through Austin, but alas, no rain. Not even dark clouds. Truth be told, a little rain would have been nice because by Sunday the temp was up to 107 and there was a thick haze of dust. By the time Coldplay came on to wra...

Austin City Limits '05

I got back from Austin yesterday. Damn it was hot down there, but I saw some pretty good performances. I won't really go into too much detail, but there was plenty to see on all three days of the festival. Highlights included: Thievery Corp., Allman Bros., Black Crowes, Built to Spill, Bloc Party, A...

They've blown up a little , but it's no where near like what happened with Modest Mouse last year. What I mean by they've blown up is that they are known by more than just the small pond of internet dorks that you describe. In no way am I saying that they are international superstars, but I think t...

I don't think Arcade Fire has gone mainstream. They've blown up a little, but it's no where near like what happened with Modest Mouse last year. Difference being that MM had been putting out albums for several years, gaining a few new fans here and there until blowing up. Arcade Fire blew up on thei...

I've wanted a tattoo ever since I was about 16. I vowed to get one when I was 18. Well, I still haven't done it and I'm starting to wonder if I ever will. It's wierd because I have 2 really good friends who are the same way. We always talk about going to get them, but we never really get around to i...

Don't go to CBGB's

I guess you could at least go see it before it's "really" gone.
