i knew i should have gotten out of work.

Here is Grizzly Bear 'Knife' from the LL here in Denver.

The whole album is amazing, but of course 'Knife' is the major standout. The are playing the Pitchfork festival in Chicago this summer. We should probably go to that too.

Haven't seen the video yet? It's amazing.

Here is Girl Talk (coming to the Bluebird soon- check to your right) gettin' buck on some Griz.

i want to kick it with these two so bad. i bet you'd break tons of glasses, get thrown out of a bar and into a fight, and when the sun comes up you awkwardy try to kiss one of them and the other breaks your nose and they wander off together into the LES morning looking for pancakes and cocaine while singing "private eyes" in short dresses. yeah. that'd be a pretty good day. why can't i have that day?

SLEEPERHORSE (ex- The Blackout Pact, Grace Like Gravity, Away By Train, Sound of Sinners, Slouch, Curious Yellow, Novallos, Sound of Sinners)
BEFORE THE SUNSET DIED (i think i fucked the name up)
special performance by TIMOTHY THOMAS CLEARY

It's the Horse's first show, so it's gonna be drunk shenanigans. Get in there. 212 Santa Fe (2nd and Santa Fe) in Denver, it's all ages, $6, Bring Your Own Booze (there is a liquor store like two blocks away too). It's gonna be fun, and DUH Signal is playing. Speaking of the dudes...

You should probably go read this interview with Signal to Noise. They shed some light on what makes the Colorado music scene so great.

fuck tuesdays

Yes But No But Yes has a great bit about 15 unintentionally funny comic panels. Its pretty hilarious; the website has some gold on it too. It's fun running into a new website with tons of new ways to completely procrastinate writing a stupid paper about something.

I survived birthday week somehow. On my forearm to the left you will find a list of all drinks consumed by yours truly on Friday, March 23rd. Thanks to all who made appearances, etc. We had a right good time. Saw TV on the Radio, the Thermals, and the Photo Atlas, hung out with the world's drunkest band Ratatat (seriously, dude could barely stand up), and ate massive amounts of Pho. I appreciate every one of my team from the bottom of my parts.

there are only three items on the agenda today.

So. My birthday is this Friday. Although Longman's treasure hunt was annoying (but worthwhile), I think he made a good point; it sucks planning a birthday. It seems wierd. That being said this Friday is my birthday. Here is what I plan on doing, where I will be etc. I'd love it if you join me. And I think we can go ahead and bring back the one-punch-for-every-year-of-life thing. Just don't be a dick about it.

THURSDAY: The Thermals are playing at the Hidive. Probably be kicking it at Sputnik until go time. And afterwards too, so come down and let's hang out. There will be the obligatory midnight shot fest I'm sure. I highly recommend going to this show whether you like me or not, Thermals fucking rule.

FRIDAY: Gonna grab the tight fam and get some dinner, then probably off to see Matatat at the Bluebird. Probably. Dunno yet, in any case there will be some heavy drinking at Rockbar. I know Rockbar can suck (unless you really like cocaine and being one of the beautiful people) but it's a cheap place to drink and a good spot for gettin' buck wile.

SATURDAY: Atlas is playing at the Hidive (wow that's wierd). I think it's the CD release show. Prada Hair Model Denver Dan [the one with the purse] promised to buy shots for everyone.

SUNDAY: Bloodies downtown somewhere.

Next week my new band Sleeper Horse is playing it's first show alongside Signal to Noise at Emerald City on Santa Fe. Friday night the 30th, no idea what time, but come down. The band is Small Brown Mike (TBOP), Josh (Away by Train, Slouch), some dude from Cleveland (Ryan Kelly formerly of Novallos), and yours truly. BYOB for real.

The day before that though I will be joining Mr. Tim Tom Cleary on some bass licks over at Tear in My Beer (Thursdays at Old Curtis Street). Some other Denver luminaries are gonna be backing Tim up as well, so don't miss it. If you haven't checked out his stuff yet I think you should do it right now.

Lost tonight. Locke-centric. 9pm ABC D.O.O.N.E.

Just take UF all the way. That's all the advice you need, believe me. How can you compete with this?

You can't. Just give up now and surrender.

There was a rant here. It went badly.

wet and rusting

1. Here is a video for Menomena's song 'Wet and Rusting'.

Besides just having a cool video, Menomena is a slamming hot band. Pick up Friend or Foe and try and prove me wrong.

2. SWSSucks. Come back friends and I don't care how long you danced with Ultragrrl or whatever. And yes, I wish I was there too.

3. We should probably go to Sasquatch this year.
