I just saw that ad myself and came here to make sure I was hearing what I thought I was hearing.

What a spectacularly bad idea.

Is there seriously no other song with a few nice bars that they could have used?

Sure, hardly anybody will notice, but for those who do...

The west side of the mountains (where Seattle is) doesn't get much snow at all. And sooooooooo cold is usually in the 20s when it's real bad, maybe even in the teens, but usually it's just lots of 30s and 40s. Pretty mild, really. And right now it's not nearly as cold as it was last week. On the eas...

No, it was a plaintive solo acoustic guitar fellow. Local, can't recall his name. The Muzzle cover, though, is interesting in that it doesn't change polarities. Was the band having fun queering the listeners, or were they genuinely gay? I know they're not gay, so I think they were just covering the...

Was it this cover of "Fuck and Run" done by Muzzle (a long-defunct Seattle power pop band...)?

Seattle does this nice thing for my birthday every year by throwing me a little party called Bumbershoot.

This year will be my 30th, and I'm glad the boys could make time to play my little gig.

A DCFC show with no LW? Say it ain't so.


That's a great show, though.

Go see Mates of State.

$15 ain't dirt cheap. It would almost be a reasonable price, especially when you look over the massive list of bands you could possibly go see -- the problem arises when you get there and the crowds are too big for you to move from one venue to the next, and you end up seeing 3 1/2 shows. Funny, fo...

Bumbershoot is nothing like SXSW. It doesn't cost a year's savings to have a good time, and most venues are easily accessible. Lasst year, I walked right in to nearly every show I wanted to in the Sky Church (which is a GREAT-sounding venue, by the by). Only the 764-HERO show required about a 3-minu...

Just because the bands are great, and from here, dosn't mean they're household names. Understandable, but I always read articles from the great Northwest, and hear about how The Long Winters are #1 on the "Northwest Rock Chart"(or something like that). So when I hear these things, I only assume, wh...

Re: "The Only Living Boy in New York"

Second, I wonder if John, the other boys, or any of you recording types might have a good copy of our guys performing it live. I have an mp3 of that song from the SAM show--which I've cleaned up as best I can considering the acoustics in that room--if'n you want it. Let me know, or PM me your e-mai...
