Hello again

I have been avoiding this blog for the last couple weeks. I haven't been feeling like a good musichead. But here's a little update on my attempts.


-Behind on mix-making again. Finished one this week. E Dub, yours is next.


-Finally sent Veronica Fever a CD I made her months ago.


-Joined last.fm. While this site seems suspiciously like social networking, in a constant search for new music, I think this is the next step.


-Favorite new artists:


1) James Husband (especially the song "Little Thrills")


2) Strange Boys


-It is the slow season for shows in Minnesota. Case in point: I've been going to free shows at a bowling alley on Monday nights. This week will be above average for concert-going though:


Monday: free show at Memory Lanes

Tuesday: nuthin'

Wednesday: free show at Sisters Camelot

Thursday: punk show in Iowa City

Friday: Low at The Varsity Theater

Saturday: maybe see a show in New York, maybe not

Sunday: see Saturday


Not bad for the slow season. The only thing missing is some Cedar shows. Soon to be resolved.

Whoa, Angel.

THROWBACK! You know I spent far too much time in my college days road tripping to Iowa City (from Cedar Falls) for punk shows. I'm sure all the bands I used to see are organic farmers or raising large families or both now.

Bummer about Low's cancellation. Presumably there was some other way to fill a Friday night in the 612 area code.

BTW...if you (or anyone you know) likes Nick Cave, or perhaps the 16 Horsepower/Wovenhand side of Americana...get thee to The Gilded Palace of Sin.

MamaE - We will have to trade notes. I would love to hear about the shows you saw.

Fever - Didn't find a replacement for Low, but thankfully they rescheduled. I will look into the Gilded Palace. Been on a Nick Cave kick, so that seems like a good fit.
