Dance Party at the Tea House, Free Market at Random Row

November 25th, 2011 · 2 Comments · By

I suspect y’all have had either a fulfilling or traumatizing Thanksgiving (or some combination of the two), and are now looking to get out of the house and party. Tonight’s Dance Party at the Tea Bazaar should be a lot of fun: It’s being put on, of course, by the Rock Department at WTJU, as […]

I know that many of you are excited about tonight’s Man Man show — and with good reason! (you still have a chance to win tickets to that by the way; see details below) — but there’s another really promising gig going on this evening, and I want to make sure it doesn’t get overlooked. […]

Thank You at the Tea Bazaar, Invisible Hand and more on WTJU

February 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments · By

The Baltimore band Thank You are playing at the Tea Bazaar tonight; they’re a band that’s only come onto my radar recently, but I really like the EP they just put out (sample song here); plus they’re on Thrill Jockey, who tend to put out great stuff, so if you have any hesitations about tonight’s […]

two movies tonight: “Robin Hood” at the Paramount, “Straight No Chaser” at the Tea Bazaar

November 29th, 2010 · Comments Off on two movies tonight: “Robin Hood” at the Paramount, “Straight No Chaser” at the Tea Bazaar · By

There’s another two movies screening tonight, but great ones (although drastically different): At the Paramount, they’re concluding their swashbuckling classics series with perhaps the quintessential swashbuckler, 1938’s “Adventures of Robin Hood” with Erroll Flynn. It reunites Flynn with Olivia de Havelland and the always-excellent Basil Rathbone, as well as adding Claude Rains. It was shot […]

some WTJU notes

August 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on some WTJU notes · By

Here’s a few things related to WTJU that I thought I would take the time to note here… First of all, everyone has been asking me what the status of the station is. Well, it’s still up in the air. But where things were once incredibly bleak, they now look hopeful. The good news, as […]

an excellent film, a cool noise/electronic show, misc WTJU stuff

February 18th, 2010 · 4 Comments · By

First of all, there’s an amazing film screening at Random Row Books tonight. Charles Burnett’s Killer of Sheep at 7:00pm! Charles Burnett was part of the “UCLA Revolution,” a group of awesome young black filmmakers from the UCLA Graduate Film program in the early 70’s (along with Billy Woodberry, Julie Dash, etc); he filmed “Killer […]

DJ Poubelle tells me that Both Corsair and Drunk Tigers will be guests on “Radio Freedonia” on WTJU this afternoon. They’re appearing in order to promote their show together (along with Red Satellites and a band called New Rock Church of Fire ) at The Southern on Saturday. I believe both these bands (Corsair and […]

On the Air again

February 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

Hey y’all — not much goin’ on around these parts, except being snowed upon. Anyhow, I’ll be on WTJU again tonight (in addition to my usual Sunday night show)… if you’re anticipating a day off of work tomorrow, you might want to stay up and listen in. I’ll be substituting for Courtney and Dave on […]

James’s 9½ favorite albums of 2009

January 23rd, 2010 · 6 Comments · By

Well, here it is at last. {Inspired by last year‘s write-up, I thought: why not review my favorite albums of 2009?  But then of course I had too much to say about all of them, so I thought about making a single blog post for each record… but inevitably I ran out of time at […]

yet another WTJU show

January 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on yet another WTJU show · By

Last night’s playlist from the Madame Psychosis Hour is up here. Not to pat myself on the back too much, but this was actually a show that thought went very well, and I was quite proud of it — although once again I was struck by the sneaking suspicion at 2:30am that I had already […]
