Damn. We were busy trying to scrape together $1,010.00 or so to get Randy Blythe a few pints of Old Grand Dad and a ticket to this. Two problems: we're pretty much broke, and L.o.G will be yodeling at goat-herders that night anyway.
Speaking of bands we got to first, have you had enough of the distressingly smug Hold Steady hype campaign?
If not, well, here, check this out. We started it.

There is a new Yo La Tengo album and it has a bunch of songs that start and then go on for a while and then end. The songs are enjoyable, as is the album as a whole. You can buy it on cd or on vinyl lp, or you can even pay to download it from a website. Or I suppose you could even find a place to download it for free, if you don't have an ethical problem with or a fear of being punished for doing that sort of thing. Nevertheless, in addition to the many ways you can get the music, there are even more "places" to find reviews to read. As far as we're concerned here, though, the most important thing about the record is it's cover, and specifically it's artist - the inspirationally indefatiguable Gary Panter - with whom we conducted an exclusive interview, which you can read by manouvering your computer mouse over and clicking this line of text.
