New Music

Posted by Andrew on Sunday, October 16, 2011, In : Ramblings 
Finally!

I've updated the music page of this blog. A backlog that went all the way back to Bonnaroo. A backlog that included some of the sickest bands I may ever see. The backlog of all backlogs.

Unclogged.

And blogged.

As the year draws to a close I propose a list of the breakout bands of 2011 in my world (they may have been around for longer):

  • The Naked and Famous
  • Noah and the Whale
  • Rural Alberta Advantage
  • Awolnation
I've seen all of these bands live except for Awolnation which I'll be seeing in mid...

"Keep Austin Weird" is a slogan to promote small business in Texas' state capital.

This weekend I venture out into the heart of the American... um, heartland, to explore more of this massive country. This time the destination is Austin, Texas for a weekend of stomping at Austin City Limits with my good friend Steve (who graced this site on road trips gone by - both here and here) and possibly the Rabbi and a few others. Dreaming of revelry.

Headlining the show are these three guys...


Yes, that is Muse.

And yes, I am goddam excited.

A few other big names will be there, but ...

I think it is time now. These guys deserve big 'props'. I'd like you all to join me in raising your goblet of rock to the best rock radio station in the world, ever!

The reason today is the today is because I spent most of it in the city - and sat in a ridonkulous amount of traffic to get there and back. But these guys saved me. Literally. Moshing har...
