Denison Witmer will be opening up for Cat Power at the Trocadero in Philadelphia next Friday, 17 October, doors at 7pm. See you there.
Wednesday night, The Six Parts Seven played The Fire as part of their autumn U.S. tour. I brought the covers for the one-sided LPs to the show and am hoping to have the vinyl to fill them sent shortly. Attitudes of Collapse is some of The Six Parts Seven finest material and one of the best releases to be on Burnt Toast Vinyl, so be sure to get it as soon as it’s available.
Thursday night, a van load of us went up to Allentown to relive the metal years and see Stryper rock it live. Needless to say, heavy metal is keeping it real in the PA countryside. It’s interesting to see a band back on the road after quite a few years and there is something completely funny about it all that seems to be lost on the band. They were good at what they were doing, so I guess that’s admirable in some way, it at least entertained us.
Tonight, my friend Dave and I saw Tarantino’s Kill Bill. It was flashy, well-filmed, edited, and scored, but the action was a bit on the predictable and cheesy side. Not a gripping turning point in American cinema, but a reasonably entertaining time.
Tomorrow night, I’ll be going to NJ to see Sufjan Stevens and Soul-Junk play at a Daniel/Elin Smith sponsored event at at The Waters, 274 Delsea Drive in Hurffville, NJ, 7pm. Artist Paul Goode will be displaying his work. Matt Ralph will be reading from his recently released book, Not Even Your Money: Stories of a Quick Stop, which is supposed to recount a moment when I visit Matt at the 7-11 and one of the customers attempted to hold him up as some sort of joke.
and the Cubs/Marlins are going into extra innings…
