Wayne Coyne Makes My Day

I was starting to get worried that I didnt get excited about music festivals anymore, and then this happened... 

Taken at Lolla 2006.  By far my favorite live show ever.

Stumbling Along...

So, I've got this list I keep of songs I've heard that I like that I would potentially download, or to check out the artist.  A lot of the time, this list grows without me going back to really look at it for a long time.  But today, I heard the Phoenix song "Long Distance Call" and it sounded very familiar.  I consulted my list, and there it was, 7 songs back.  I've heard a lot of buzz about this band lately, but somehow, if I dont stumble on a band on my own, I tend to ignore the hype.  

Phoenix, consider yourself stumbled upon.  

Coming to Chicago?  No US dates on the tour schedule. Maybe a p4k or lolla stop???

Despite what Scott Masson said in my interview with him about being over the 'scene', he's added a few dates for the band on their myspace page.  More details in my write-up for Gapers Block today.  

In other news, I'll be at the Cut Copy/Matt & Kim show at The Vic tonight!  Should be a great show!

New Andrew Bird Video: "Fitz and the Dizzy Spells"

I was there for the awesome secret show when they filmed part of this video at The Hideout.  And don't think I wasn't looking for myself on my first run-through...
