A regular posting schedule will resume next week. Between the last week and weekend spent at work, and the week that's just starting--I understand why people cut themselves and I'm gratefull we'll be in "long-sleeve weather" soon. The Electric Six, BRMC and Beck shows this week will be the only times I'm allowed out of the office, so if you see me passed out at any of the venues--if you could throw me in a cab and send me back to work, I'd appreciate it. Here's the little bit of news I have:
UPDATE: Arrested Development's almost-didn't-happen 3rd season starts tonight. Why aren't you watching this show?
Welcome to JamRock. Bob Marley spawn, Damian "Junior Gong" Marley, will open both
Someone must have beat some sense into Damon Albarn: Gorillaz will play actual live shows in November. That's a step in the right direction, but you're still nowhere near sane enough for Coxon to come back and deal with your shit. Keep trying.
Carl Barat, former co-singer/songwriter of The Libertines--you know the normal one without the coke habit or supermodel girlfriend/ex-girlfriend/girlfriend, is putting his band back together. Meanwhile, Pete Doherty is somewhere being a twat and thinking he can get a tour off.
Loyal readers will know of my love for The Hold Steady's latest album, Separation Sunday, and will have already bought tickets for their November 1st show (since it's going to sell out). It turns out The Hold Steady is NOT headlining this show--the Constantines are. This does not make the ribosomes happy.
Best Ann Arbor venue: Madison House. If you weren't lucky enough to see Johnny Headband's acoustic set last night, you can catch Great Lakes Myth Society next Sunday-- the last Madison House show of the season.
If you plan on attending the Electric Six/ Troy Gregory/ Johnny Headband show at the Belmont tomorrow night, prepare for an over-capacity crowd. And don't get there before I do.
