we're somewhere between


things that are happening in chicago soon that are worth going to:

november 9 is another hollows record release show. they play girl-pop heavily influenced by the 1950's, and their song "muncie, IN" is perfect. this show is free.

november 13th brings both a locrian record release show, and a protestant show. unfortunately, they are no-where near each other. bummer-sauce.

november 14th brings two shrinebuilder shows, and bomb the music industry. you CAN do both of these.

drink slow with nowhere to go

the lawrence arms are releasing a new ep entitled "buttsweat and tears", and you can hear two songs from it here. i really dig on "the slowest drink at the saddest bar on the snowiest day in the greatest city". unfortunately, i'll be missing their 10th anni show to go see a play about professional wrestling.

i was going to write a long letter about how much i don't like the new mountain goats, but honestly, i guess i really just want to say "i think this is my stop, i'll be getting off here."

kind of a bummer.

at least the new converge is ten thousand kinds of awesome.

"this song would have been good if the barenaked ladies hadn't written it ten years ago, when it was called the old apartment." - my friend foursquare on the new mountain goats single

i'm going to write more about the new mountain goats record, since i went to a screening of the film about(?) it tonight, but i'm sleepy right now, and i'm worried i won't articulate things as well as the mountain goats deserve.

the film is terrible, by the by. music aside, it is one excruciatingly long shot punctuated with shaky cameras, needless rotation, and cheesy lighting.
