It’s an unfortunate truth that if I stopped working Thursdays, I wouldn’t be able to afford anything but lentils and rice. If I lived in a boring town with no sense of creativity (is there such a place?) this would be okay, but REAL good things keep happening on Thursdays and it’s verging on torture..
Take tonight at Muchmore’s: halfsour + Summer Saints + Infinity Hotel.
halfsour is a new band from Boston, made up of three very cool people. Their bandcamp went live just yesterday with the songs from a five track cassette (c/o everydayisamixtape) and I’m happy to say it’s fun and catchy and very worth the fifteen minutes of your life it’ll take to listen.
WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT ALBUM ART?!
Facebook RSVP heeereeee but 8 PM and $5 is kinda all you need to know

I’m going to be twenty-eight in exactly two weeks. That’s insane! Cat and I started Pilgrims when we were twenty-one (I remember because we interviewed a band at All Asia and that’s where I had my first legal USA beer)! Seven years.
This yearly realization of “whaaat am I doing” is part of birthdays for everyone, I think. I’m going to be jumping on the grenade here and making myself post every day, so get ready to learn a lot about what I’ve been thinking and eating (they’re opening a Vietnamese place in Bushwick!!!) and listening to.
Starting with Prince Rupert’s Drops.
I love this song:
The internet tells me that Run Slow, which came out in Autumn 2012, is their debut album despite being a band since 2005. I guess we’re all pretty late to the game, but another one of my resolutions is to see them before summer’s end. You can stream the whole album here and maybe you’ll go see em at Knitting Factory July 5th?

I have a pretty strong aversion to doing things on Sunday nights. Besides the part where it’s pretty wonderful to have a lazy day and turn in early with your ex-boyfriend’s Netflix, I think the core issue is alternate side parking. I usually have to move my car by 8 AM on Monday morning (I realize I could be outside moving it right now but I’m busy) and I really like getting more than five hours of sleep in a row. Also, I have cats. Three of them. You’re asking me to leave the futon party I’m hosting?
That being said, the show at Death by Audio might make me put on pants! Seriously! Pile and Fat History Month are rolling through on their way back to Boston after one epic tour and, if you didn’t know already… they’re good!
$7 8 PM doors hop to it!

But a cold’s a cold and last week was insane. If you haven’t yet, check out the video for Speedy Ortiz’s “Ka-Prow!” (same Northampton, MA band that Carpark welcomed to the family this week).

I had a pretty great day yesterday, sponsored by cats and sprouts and Shark? and Beach Fossils and… pizza. One of the best parts, though, was sitting here, eating a pickle in my coolest tie-dyed shirt while watching the new Colleen Green video. I had succumbed to post-SXSW stupor entirely and all I could think was “Everyone I know is a babe”.
And today I’m futoning in my “Wicked Pissa” shirt and the truth remains: Everyone I know is a babe, and gosh if some of them aren’t super-talented too. Watching Colleen’s new video, I am blissed out counting the friends I know on screen and holding the knowledge that one Pat Breen (Garbagetown) is super good at this whole directing thing.
If you haven’t, watch it!
