Taking a bit of a hiatus for three good reasons:
A. Working a lot more than a lot! Not to mention DJing a lot (have you hung out with us at Alaska yet?)
B. Between BBQs and free day shows and the occasional need to do laundry, summer has this knack for flying by.
C. The replacement power cord I got for my replacement power cord isn’t working and I find writing posts on my phone somewhat maddening. And don’t even get me started on an overheated laptop in 90 degree weather.
I’ve mastered the art of the 140 characters though, so please please follow us/keep following us on Twitter.
Mark my words, I’ll be back before CMJ. We got some bands to weed out. Now, let’s all go outside and have fun!

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

Tell me, have you met 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).
