Bells On Recommends


I need to get serious for a minute. Very, very serious.

I know some of you out there live in Chicago, and Denver, and Boston, and Milwaukee, and somewhere in buttfuck Michigan that might be close enough to Ann Arbor to make the trip.

The Long Winters are touring again
. And the good news for you is that they're not yet popular enough that they play the big clubs. You can see them in a small club. With probably some decent sound.

You must go. You must. They just fucking rock. They just do. You will love them. Especially the lead singer/songwriter, John Roderick. Gals, you will want him for your boyfriend. Guys, you will want him for your best friend. Unless you are gay...in which case you might have to reverse the gal/guy thing. Any way, the point is, you cannot resist him. Resistance is futile.

Go. Go, go, go.

Alas, Ann Arbor is like 4 hours away. But it is lovely here in Buttfuck right now.

These guys are in SF the one Saturday in months I'll be out of town. I never get to have any fun!

Chris: Too bad, because I really seriously think you would love them. Download some tracks, dammit:

Michael: I have no idea of your musical taste, except that it appears to be very diplomatic (Springsteen v. Mellencamp). But if you want smart-ass lyrics that also just happen to break your fucking heart (my favorite kind of lyrics), check 'em out. See link above.

Listen to the lady, she knows what's she's talkin bout.
"Carparts" & "Stupid" are two of the greatest pop songs ever written.

I just love that resistance and futility thing. I smile every single time!! If I can ever get your sister and her new beau out of Boulder, I'd convince them to go see your new band crush crew.

Fuck and alas, they're not coming to Norfolk. They are however, playing a venue in DC that I've NEVER even heard of, unless Rock and Roll Hotel is a secret code name for the Black Cat. . .

If you say so.

Yeah, I think I can manage to resist trendy twee-looking ironic-bearded thick-framed-bespeckled guitar-based pop stars badly dressed in suits. There's, like, a million of 'em! They're EVERYWHERE.

Jess,

"Yeah, I think I can manage to resist trendy twee-looking ironic-bearded thick-framed-bespeckled guitar-based pop stars badly dressed in suits. There's, like, a million of 'em! They're EVERYWHERE."

I agree, but these guys are legit.

Well, far be it for me to condemn judging a book by its cover.

Jess said...

I thought that's what band shots were for. For me to judge and find wanting. I thought that was the whole POINT!
