I plan to see The Dirtbombs again when they come back in May. $10 cover! That's hard to beat. I'm debating seeing The Kills again in May too. But I saw both The Kills and The Dirtbombs last year and don't know if I should spend all my entertainment expenditures seeing the same bands over again.

...However, I think that it's bullshit that some artificial market forces are hastening the demise of a music format I truly love. Ha... yes, it's all a big conspiracy man. It doesn't have anything to do with people buying (or simply getting ) music downloaded from the web. It all the man forcing i...

Right now all of my CDs are in storage, stacked in boxes right beside all my boxed up vinyl... and my one small box of cassettes. I view them only as backup storage.

I could totally be down with Gerry Roslie, though my vote for Iggy was predominantly because of his voice. Even that French video, when he's just talking... Man, what a voice.

But I'll get behind Gerry Roslie.
