How Did It Get So High?


Hey, it's Geddy Lee's birthday, which calls for one song: Stereo by Pavement.

Yesterday, I Got So Old


While they were in Chicago recently, Superchunk stopped by the offices of The Onion's AV Club and recorded a great cover of The Cure's In Between Days. The AV Club's Undercover series is winding down, so there weren't a ton of choices left, including Superchunk's own Detroit Has A Skyline, which they passed on playing for the series. Not many songs left, I'm kind of curious who will end up doing The Mats' I Will Dare.

So, So Sick


If you haven't seen me out and about in a bit, it's because I've been at home, popping Mucinex DM and playing Civilization.

Let's Get Lost


While I'll be looking forward to seeing the reunited Guided By Voices at the Matador at 21 show, I'm pretty excited about the fact that Come will be getting together to play in Vegas as well.

Ain't Sure Where You Stand


Why yes, I am old(er) and still bald, thanks for the reminder, everyone. Not quite as interesting of a birthday this year, since I'm at home rather than tromping around Himeji.

Devil May Care

Saving Souls in Sin City

A few protesters on the Strip in Las Vegas in 2004, from the last time I was in Las Vegas.

I hadn't planned on trying to get tickets to the incredible Matador at 21 concert out in Las Vegas, but a friend scored some tickets earlier today, so looks like I'll be heading out the Nevada for the first time in ages to see an incredible lineup of bands! You know you're looking at a pretty stellar group of bands when folks like Superchunk are getting relegated to the lower part of the billing poster.

A few songs by bands that will be playing:
- As We Go Up, We Go Down by Guided By Voices
- Sonic Youth playing Teenage Riot on the Jools Holland show last year.
- The New Pornographers playing The Laws Have Changed on Letterman.
- Guitar Wolf's cover of Summertime Blues

A Fat Tire, Please

This is from when we are at some subterranean bar in Chapel Hill. Did you know that you can get New Belgium beers in North Carolina? Totally unfair that you can't get them anywhere else on the east coast. Oh well, I guess I'll be out west soon enough.
