Are We Not Men?


Yes, Tonight!

Devo! At The Sunken Garden Theatre, an awesome outdoor venue that's just a 10 minute walk from my house!

This will be my 6th time to see the bad boys from Akron Ohio. And like alot of things in life, the first time was the best!

I've got a Gut Feeling tonight's gonna be hot!

The Psychodelic Furs are opening up - sounds like a Slap Your Mammy blast of fun.

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
(These opening lyrics from Uncontrolable Urge explian exactly how I'm feeling about tonights show!)


Dude - no shit - I just ran into Mark Mothersbaugh at Central Market across the street from my office and he totally frosted me! Really!

I was leaving Joe Barfield a message regarding my 2 free tickets (That's Right!) and I jokingly said I was wandering around CM with the first Devo album under my arm hoping for an autograph. As I was fixin' to head down the stairs outside he was walking up.

He was all dapper in a white fedora and starched out duds and I said excuse me.

Uh Excuse, me. (He walks past me going faster) Oh man c'mon.

I finally said I'll see you tonight and he turned around barely smiling and walked away. Shit!

Anyway, it's still gonna rock.



UPDATE II: It most certainly did! Rock That is...

Recycling The Throwaways

The kids over at A Bunch of Beatniks Riding a Rocket (a MP3 label disguised as a blog) are offering an entire CD of really cool low-fi indie pop from the likes of The World Record, Kincaid, The Smittens, and one of my all time favorites - Masters Of The Hemisphere.

As if the title of this freebie doesn't make it clear enough, this is a compilation of songs that never quite made it on to an official release. And after a listen or two you'll understand why.

But don't let that stop you! There are a few gems - including Stay In Your Shoes from The Mendoza Line, Colin Clary's Absinthe Minded, the hilarious Pierre Pierce from The Poison Control Center, Hey Jacques Le Brain by The World Record and Canal Styles Masters Of The Hemisphere.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
