How about the Low Christmas album, strikingly beautiful. Even as a huge Dandy Warhols fan, their version of the Little Drummer Boy blows it out of the water. It gives me chills during every listen.

So, I was driving and listening to the album and felt an urgent need to clarify the above statements. By "punk", I in no way was referring to some of my favorites of yesterdays gone. I was referring more to the cookie-cutter sound of today's popular "punk" releases marketed towards a teen crowd lack...

Well, the main guy is Walter Schreifels of Gorilla Biscuits and Quicksand notariety. He also produced Hot Water Music out of New York. The other three members have various punk backgrounds, as well. As Rival Schools, though, the seem to have kept the grittiness of punk but embellished the music with...

Actually, I'm itching to go see a show in Chicago in January. I've been looking for a show to check out. Anyone know of anything in the pipeline?

Has anyone else heard their cd United By Fate? I picked it up, along with the hype, last night and am rapidly becoming enamoured with it.

So, does anyone know anything about the upcoming Djali Zwan shows? Apparently, the band is made up of the Smashing Pumpkins ex-frontman, drummer and several others. A friend purchased a ticket for this SP extravaganza but I'm not sure what to expect.

So, does anyone have a gem of a venue that you think has not been given the respect it deserves? Likewise, any venue been given far too much credit for what it really is?

Hey now. So, I haven't posted before but was compelled to post this time due to a certain Wrangler commercial. Has anyone seen this commercial? The one where they play Fortunate Son amidst scenes of "All-American" folks. Now, I'm all for patriotism for your home country, but they have edited the son...
