in which the narrator has had too much coffee before 9 a.m.

(off-topic post in the off-topic forum!) he's a lilly-white elitist liberal from VT Normally I would cross oceans to throw down with someone who has this viewpoint, but instead I'll just point out that anyone who says something like that about Howard Dean remains blissfully unaware of his actual vot...

manditory 'best of 2003' thread

Hi! An identical thread has already been started on the Barsuk board, I'm trying to keep my mind off the fact that I just flew across the country on Thanksgiving only to be dumped like a little bitch, and we all know that the InterWeb is an easy, wonderful way to shove yr opinion down the throat of ...

all in all, we cannot stop singing

i've never known a musician that wasn't terribly narcissitic, (myself included)and i've spent my entire life living amongst them and interacting with them in various and assorted ways. Apparently you've never come across someone like, say, Ted Leo? There's a whole fucking lot of sincere, earnest (t...

I am nothing of a builder; here I dreamt I was an architect

I saw the Decemberists this past Saturday in Chicago and it was like religion, only without the nasty aftertaste or damaging sociopolitical effects. The degree to which I am in love with that band -- and the performance that I bore humble, bowed-head witness to -- is unable to be described in human ...

my five cents

We was there. The debauchery (i.e. 2-hour almost-acoustic set) went down at an Italian eatery called the Mill. I consumed no fewer than ten (10) gin gimlets during the course of said evening in Iowa City, I don't even remember who I bought drinks for anymore, and our Travelodge room had box elder be...

i am listening to superchunk & drinking coffee. yay.

This drink was actually created when I went to buy Eric and I White Russians at the Metro and the girl at the bar upstairs had run out of cream. Ms. Bartender asked, "Uh, do you just want me to make it with Bailey's instead?" and I shrugged, which prompted her to say, "Do you realise how fucked up y...

My entire collection of 1,200+ is alphabetised, and also alphabetised within artist, though I know those slightly more geeky than me (there is such a thing, I swear) are prone to going chronological at that point. So please, no one act like it's a bad thing to keep yr CDs neurotically organised, or ...

Iowa City | 10/8 | late show?

Seeing as we are already hiking very nearly 1,400 miles to follow The Tour to End All Tours, I was surprised/thrilled to see a new listing for Wednesday (day after tomorrow!) in Iowa City, which reads simply: 10/8 | Mill (Iowa City, IA) | 11pm That'd bring us up to a grand total of seven (7) shows i...

regulators, mount up.

Count us in: Laura, our friend Leigh, and I will be in all-too-predictable attendance.

(That goes for Iowa City, Minneapolis, the second night in Chicago, and Champaign, as well.)

ill-fated presumptions

I think it's actually the IOTA. Which is not in our style, apparently. Hey, hey -- Drums & Tuba are playing at the end of the month, dude. Then again, Bettie Serveert are slated for October.

The 9:30, for a TLW headlining set? I don't think I could accept a bet for that. My money goes for the Black Cat Backstage. They did Galaxy Hut forever and a half ago, too. It's great there, even though the last time I visited, I had to go up the road (to IOTA, which is also a pretty nice, wee venue...
