I finally got the new Failure DVD of that they put out. While the DVD footage looks like it came from a handheld camcorder or worse, the content is really great. It made me really miss their second record (Magnified) which I had on tape only. I went out and got that last weekend, along… Read more »
We went to see the Old 97’s last night at The Fillmore. It was a great show and I think it even made it onto Alanna’s best ever list. Rhett Miller looked a little out of it for the first couple of songs but then the whole band settled in for a great show. I… Read more »

The Shins show was really good last night. Well at least the Shins were really good. The opening band was a weird female rip off of Steely Dan, without the good songs. Everyone thought it was the fiery furnaces when they came out and it took them a few songs for them to even mention… Read more »
Went to the Death cab show last night. Great show. On the Speakers is getting better and I think that was the 3rd time we have seen them in just as many months. Didn’t stay for to much of Ben Kweller because well, I already have lots of Weezer records.
