Rundown: 8/2/10

2 Aug

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti / Puro Instinct @ Hailey’s

Listen, all the info you could ever want about Ariel Pink has been provided by other sites, and they have done one hell of a job doing so. I suggest you listen to them and make it a point to catch this show.

Miniature Tigers / The Spinto Band / MATAS @ The Loft

Hey, kids, be prepared to get over yourselves and love the new MATAS record when it hits. I heard the mixes recently and was blown away, as the band has taken their game up three or four levels to deliver one of the better releases coming out at the end of the year.

Dunes / True Widow / The Bizzaro Kids @ The Nightmare

The Bizzaro Kids’ blend of visuals and music is one of the most exciting things going on in the area that almost nobody knows about. Make it a point to catch these guys and rethink your view on what can be done with a three-piece band.

Rundown: 7/13 to 7/19

14 Jul

Just got home from seeing Bruno, and there was a certain vignette in the film that struck a chord with me,towards the end of the movie Sacha Baron  Cohen attacks a current American obsession MMA. I fucking hate MMA, something about watching to tweeked out men in short shorts roll around on the ground mounting each other fails to impress me. It feels as if the continued dumbing down of America is at a nadir when any of these events come around, and really nothing about this “sport” could ever touch the cultural impact some boxers had, namely the ground broken by Jack Johnson, Joe Louis and Ali. So, it’s hilarious when British comediene (that’s me trying to be clever) shines a light onto something so deplorable, of course my lack of Affliction t shirts, and energy drinks could be behind this line of thinking.

Anyway, music showcases, EP release shows, and interviews and reviews all await you this week. Enjoy.

Rundown: 7/7 to 7/12

7 Jul

The issue of doing most of the writing for this site is when something comes up I don’t really have anyone to fall back on to get post up, and I’m forced to through random shit up via my phone. 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

23 Jun

Blah, blah, blah opening paragraph, blah, blah, blah something esoteric, blah, blah, blah, I’m sick, blah, blah, blah, Please if you enjoy the music provided make an effort to either go down to your local record shop, or try one of the online retailers (amzon, emusic, itunes) to find the albums for purchase.

Rundown: 6/22 to 6/28

22 Jun

It’s funny to realize that you’re aging, I say this because of the realization that kids born in 1990 are quickly approaching 20, and the idea you had of them being this young group of kids who were obsessed with Hannah Montana goes flying right out the window, when you see them stealing beer from a keg.

Anyway, it’s a slow week, and I’m sick so don’t expect much. Continue reading
