This is Awesome: Stream Side A of Fishboy’s Classic Creeps

3 Feb

Fishboy (aka Eric Michener & Co.) has long been one of my favorite local acts. Michener’s childlike, simplistic songs deceptively distract from his incredible talent and the talent of the other musicians in his band. That simplicity also masks the elaborate back stories, often explained in greater detail in the accompanying comic books that Michener creates.

It’s been almost two years since the release of Fishboy’s last album, NOM. But in April we will get a new Fishboy offering, Classic Creeps. You can stream Side A of the record right now from Fishboy’s blog and tomorrow you can find out how to pre-order it.

Classic Creeps is everything you’d expect from Fishboy, in a good way.

Anyway, we’ve got a fairly decent week capped by a free show we’re throwing, and a that little bit of breaking news we had for you on Sunday. Continue reading

The best part about putting together shows is it raises my awareness/appreciation for the bands we end up working with, something that has kind of ruled my week as of late. Fishboy‘s upcoming record features a press release nugget that’s slightly mind blowing, and I quote… Continue reading

Rundown: 6/15 to 6/21

You know what’s fun to realize? The fact the the Mavericks had two different opportunities to trade Dirk for Kobe, and passed both times. Now this may just be my continued sour grapes over the Harris trade causing me to mention this, or it could be the fact that I continue to watch the Mavs fail while seeing Kobe continually rising to the highest level of success, and it kind of pisses me off.

Though let’s be honest, there’s no way Dallas fans accept Kobe over their beloved blue eye’d German.

Anyway, whe have one hell of a week of music in the metroplex, let’s take a look at the highlights.
