So I somehow forgot that the Corsair / Kiste show was tonight (Thursday)!  I’m home sick but y’all should go. No idea who Suzukiton are but I think they’ve played town in the past…

Mabuse

October 23rd, 2008 · Comments Off on Mabuse · By

Sorry for the lack of my presence at, or any blogging about, the Mabuse der Spieler screening at The Bridge last night. I caught some sort of nasty sinus illness and went home to bed with a pile of drugs and vitamins. Hopefully I can make it to part two of the screening tomorrow… hopefully […]

R.I.P. Levi Stubbs of The Four Tops. Don has the scoop (with plenty of links) over on Radio Wowsville. I had no idea he was the voice of Audrey II. ***** Completely unrelated to that, here are two great things I just found on the internet: “Black Car” by Black Tambourine, a short-lived Slumberland Records […]

Last-minute news; the Cinemasophia gig that was scheduled for next week is actually happening at The Bridge tonight, with Corsair and Lux Perpetua. {it was moved so as not to conflict with the Nice Jenkins CD release, I believe}. 9 to 11, $5 cover. There’s an even earlier (7pm) show at Gravity Lounge: Wes Swing, […]

Courtesy of the folks over at CvilleMuse, I’ve just been made aware of this scan of a Charlottesville underground punk ‘zine from 1984. Holy shit! Do any of you oldsters out there have punk tales from Cville’s 80’s? The two venues that keep getting mentioned are The Mineshaft and Muldowney’s Pub … anyone remember where […]

Nailgun presents: Media Sandwich at the Garage tonight!

I’m doing a film screening at The Garage tonight, including several videos by myself and a performance by my friends Chris and John. They’re in a new band called Mondo; they’ve been hosting weekly keyboard-noise jams at our old house and have filled several cassette sides worth of weird techno-hippie improv, this will be their […]

October 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment · By

So Leon Russel appears to have cancelled his Gravity Lounge show tonight? But apparently, there’s another (apparently metal-esuqe? i have no idea) show on the other side of town tonight?  Marie from Corsair sez:  May you pass safely under the Dragon’s Wing. May you benefit from the Flame of the Dragon’s Breath. May we see […]

Dust All-Star show tonight

October 17th, 2008 · 3 Comments · By

There’s a show at Dust tonight, with a pretty impressive line-up: Mogwai-esque hard-rockers A Cosmonaut’s Ruin, apocalyptic metal cowboys Horsefang, post-DC-hardcore powerhouses Worn in Red and Tapeworms, and a band called Savage Land, whom I don’t know anything about {although their name makes me think of X-Men comics from my youth}.  Apparently the show is […]
