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 […]

Andrew Cedermark & Hot Lava at The Box

February 15th, 2010 · Comments Off on Andrew Cedermark & Hot Lava at The Box · By

There’s a show at The Box tonight with Andrew Cedermark and Hot Lava. Andrew’s music is something I’ve been raving about for a while now; it’s stripped-down, sloppy-slackerish indie-rock reminiscent of the mid-90’s, but with a sparse, sprawling freedom to it that’s pretty liberating and joyous, while still being smart and thoughtful.  I have no […]

WTJU Sock-Hop! / also a Random Row show

February 13th, 2010 · 7 Comments · By

Here’s a thing tonight that I’m super excited about: The last few WTJU dance parties have all been super-fun (and very successful), and I have high hopes for tonight. Department-spanning WTJU newcomer (and seriously awesome dude) Steven Villereal is gonna start things off at 9pm with some Peruvian jams that I’ve been assured are somehow […]

some Art shows, a Bridge concert, & the BirdLips Farewell show!

February 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on some Art shows, a Bridge concert, & the BirdLips Farewell show! · By

Here’s an art show that you probably missed in the blizzard last Friday; been trying to dig up info on this for a week, actually, but for a while it seemed to be one of those annoying things that was being promoted only through FaceBook… Thankfully, Patrick Costello emailed me yesterday with the scoop: At […]

After a week or two of near-inactivity, here are several cool things going on this evening: First of all there’s the third annual Silent Valentines film screening at The Bridge; following past years’ screenings of films by classic silent comedians like Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd, this year’s event will dig a little deeper in […]

“Brazil” at the Tea House / more radio

February 10th, 2010 · 4 Comments · By

As part of their ongoing project of screening every single Terry Gilliam film (and at least one that actually by Terry Jones), the Tea Bazaar is showing 1985’s “Brazil” tonight, on their brand new in-house video projector. It’s free and it starts at 9pm. I was a huge Gilliam fan as a kid, but as […]

On the Air again

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 […]

Saturday Snow updates, & an aptly-named Random Row show

February 6th, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

Seemed like we got most of our snow early this morning; woke up late in the morning to an extra foot or so — it made the walk to work beautiful, but slow. As I’m writing this, huge construction vehicles are toiling noisily outside my the window down at the intersection of McEntire and Preston. […]

Snow News is not-so-good News

February 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment · By

Folks, I regret to inform you that Cold Cave, scheduled to play at the Tea Bazaar tomorrow (Friday) night, have — somewhat unsurprisingly, given the circumstances — had to postpone their appearance.   The good news is that apparently Nite Jewel, the other out-of-town band, are still hoping to play, so we’ll do our best to […]
