What’s the point of having a music blog if I can’t plug my friends’ bands? Here it goes…
Collin’s band Breaker! Breaker! has a great new CD available at Kim’s and other fine music shops. Watch their video too.
Viv and Ed’s band Mommy And Daddy have an awesome new video in which they’re sweaty and rocking out. I lost the link, tho. Viv, send me the URL!
Dennis has an acoustic residency Sunday nights this month at Pianos. Check it out and maybe he will wear his cool shoes.
Rob’s band Morning Theft plays Pianos on my birthday, 4/28. I saw them acoustic last week and he sounded like Paul Westerberg. Rock!
Marcus plays bass for Argentine. See them live this Friday April 23 at (where else) Pianos.
Bex performs her unique brand of “sexuopolitical songs and puppetry” at NorthSix on April 29.
Danny’s band Ladyjane has a new Website. They perform at Luna Lounge 4/29.
And three non-music things…
Lindsay Lindsayism will bring the 2nd Ritalin Toothing Series to Pianos on April 27. Sign up for updates here.
Thanks Nicole for sending me some awesome stereogum.com pins. Check out her site Rock The Tote where you can buy cool bags, shirts, and pins.
James, my good friend and the instigator of numerous indie rock flame wars on this site, is back in his native U.K. for a few months. This means he can’t go to concerts with me this summer. But starting today I can read his rants at rawstory.com. His first article is about a British TV documentary causing a stir because it shows an abortion. Welcome back to the blogosphere James.
