Hiya gang. I got back from our Easter Vigil after only 3 hours (I’m Catholic, what can I say) so I figured that I should post something for you all to enjoy.
>>A very cool fellow from The Decemberists message board, Steve Goldberg, has some songs that I think you’ll like. He’s witty, he’s a good musician and gosh darn it I think he’s just what we need on this Easter morning. You’ll like this if you like all those Weezer-spawned bands like Ozma and The Get Up Kids. There are more songs at his website. Word on the street is that he’s preping a CD. Keep it on the down low though.
>>Electric Six Tour – May 6 Louisville, KY
Headliners. I’m thinking of going to this one so I can rock out to Gay Bar and High Voltage! My friend Jay assures me that their new album is wonderful, however I refuse to download it and don’t have the spare money to buy an album on a recomendation right now. Anyone either seeing Electric Six or know if their new album is good?
>>John Mayer’s cover of Kid A I had looked for a hosted copy of this back when I started my blog, but couldn’t find it. Now, I can. If you haven’t heard it, I highly suggest it. I prefer this to the original, actually. EDIT: seems to not be working now. Hmmm…. darn communists
>>My taxes. I did them and I get $$ back. Is this a cool country or what?
>>Decemberists with Willy Mason in May. It’ll be awesome. I’ve talked to some people that are going to the show and we’re thinking about getting together before or afterwards at a restaurant. Any of you going to the Louisville show and want in?
>>JukeBlog is an mp3-blog recommending website. Create an account and rank a couple random posts (e.g. they’ll show you a post on Largehearted boy and you rank it from 1-5). Then it will suggest which mp3 blogs fit you best. How it works, I don’t know. Hopefully YANP will be added soon. Thanks to Sixeyes for the heads-up!
>>My new Subbs the Zombie tshirt. It kicks some major butt. I’ll try to take a picture of it once I get back to college.
>>The Dandy Warhols/Brian Jonestown Massacre movie Dig! comes out on DVD April 12th. I will probably be chipping in money for this because both myself and my roommate’s girlfriend, Emily, totally dig the Dandies.
>>Roman Candle – they sound kinda like Speechwriters LLC and Jason Mraz. Their sound is definetely spiffy. Check ’em out if you’ve got the time.
