Thanks to Mike for the text message to tell me about The Appleseed Cast show at the Unitarian. Brit and I dropped everything to meet up with Mike, Jeff, and Christina. It’s a shame you weren’t with us Willi$. I was trying to remember when Willi$ and I saw them play in Philadelphia. It must have been 1998 or 1999 in the fall back in the Unitarian basement. We are old men. Ha ha!
Anyhow, tonight! don’t forget!! lenny smith!!! vollmar!!!! half-handed cloud!!!!! above circle thrift, 2007 frankford ave, 8pm, $6. Mike’s running sound and I’ll be there for sure.

I went with Matt and Ben to see Rosie Thomas play last night at World Cafe. Johnathon from Unwed Sailor is on tour as Rosie’s bassist, so we got to hang out before, during, and after the show. I’m running a little low on sleep, but will try to get caught up tonight because tomorrow, I’m helping put on a show with Half-Handed Cloud, Vollmar, and Lenny Smith. It starts at 8 above Circle Thrift, 2007 Frankford Ave. in Philadelphia. See you there!

Everyone has left my house after a busy few days. I had everyone making LPs for me on Monday to help me get caught up on distribution. Redeye is going to distribute several LPs with the first batch hitting on 16 May. Starflyer 59′s Portugues Blues one-sided LP and Talking Voice Vs. Singing Voice LP, Ester Drang’s Pleasure Themes and Get Rich Schemes, and The Six Parts Seven Attitudes of Collapse will all be out then. This will be the first time to get those Starflyer vinyl releases in a record store near you.
Soporus has just created a myspace page that features 3 songs, 2 of which can be downloaded. They will be one of the bands on the 4 way 2xLP split release.
Johnathon Ford is coming to Philadelphia tomorrow as part of Rosie Thomas’ band who are playing at World Cafe Live. Maybe I’ll see you there.
