Tonight, I’ll be at the North Star in Philadelphia to see Damien Jurado rock out with T.W. Walsh and Songs:Ohia. I can’t wait. Hope to see you at the show.
Last night, I watched most of the World Series game at my friend Dave’s house. I left when it was tied up, but then stayed up late enough to see the Giants pull through. I’m still a National League fan at heart, even though the Giants and Dodgers are fierce rivals. And, I really do like Barry Bonds.
All American Radio are playing tomorrow night in Lancaster at the Chameleon with One Line Drawing, Arms Bend Back, and Falcon Jones. Starts at 6pm. All you Lancaster folks go out to the rock. I’ll be on my way to Pittsburgh to see the Philip Glass Ensemble play two nights.
I talked to Denison on the road last night. He was in Kansas City and had just played at a David Eggers book signing in Missouri. He seems to be excited about how the tour is going. Be sure to see him while he rides around in his van around the country. Say hello.
I just heard from Unwed Sailor who are in Italy at the moment and are very happy with their shows there. They seem really excited about their touring, too.
A few new cds arrived today…Stars of the Lid : Avec Laudenum, Death Cab for Cutie : You Can Play These Songs with Chords (original demos, plus extras), Christmas Decorations : Model 91 (Kranky), and Bailiff (Kranky). I also re-stocked the Low Christmas record, in time for the season. So, be sure to get that from the on-line store. I added a few new releases, but also added a “Recommended New Releases” and “Recommended Classic Releases” for shoppers looking for cds which I would highly recommend.
Next week is CMJ in NYC. I’ll be going up to see Pedro the Lion in Brooklyn on Wednesday and quite possibly to see The Six Parts Seven on Halloween Night. Scientific will be playing with Pedro the Lion and Seldom in Philadelphia on 1 November, so I’ll be at that show, too. Should be a busy week.
