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!

It seems I’m getting back into regular posting! Tell your friends! I will try and stay relevant even though I’m currently listening to “Rhiannon” on repeat.
Speedy Ortiz is a band you’re probably familiar with if you live in Massachusetts and have paid attention to show listings in the past oh… year. They’re real good. Fun fact is that I met two of my favorite NYC people at a Quilty show (the band Sadie used to be in) at Goodbye Blue Monday in May 2011.
If you’re not familiar, I suggest you listen here:
They’ll be at Cameo tomorrow on one dreamy bill, and you ought to consider it. My roommate is working in the front bar too so you better be nice to her. Am I not being convincing enough? Shark? is playing too! What else do you need!!! I would be there but I’m going to be in Narragansett watching Saturday Night Live with my parents and I’m really excited.

I’m having a really hard time getting anything done. I’ve realized that not next Wednesday and not the Wednesday after that, but the one after THAT, I will be in Austin. I will not be wearing the huge sweater I am right now. I will probably be eating/just ate/about to eat a taco. You guys can gripe about SX as much as you want, for me it was a happy place (this comes from adopting an “eff it I’ll see them in NYC” attitude that saved my feet and friendships).
Anywho, life continues. There’s a cat on my lap and a pot of coffee in front of me. What’s going on?
*True story I’ve had this window open for about an hour now just talking to Laura (that’s my roommate) about pierogi trucks and Girls and boys*
It’s dinner time, so I’m just going to leave you with the knowledge and the recommendation that Boston’s Ex-Magicians have generously offered up their EP at a name-your-own/don’t-be-a-jerk price. And that I like it! Also they mentioned me on their Facebook page today which made my heart smile.
Theirs was the last show I ever saw at WWTA, and a tape that I own proudly.

I just figured out that we let http://www.pilgrimsofsound.com die! Like, the domain! You could buy it! What would you do with it, I wonder?
This is all wonderful beautiful fantastic WordPress’s fault, naturally. Why have a domain when you can throw any ole phrase in the gap between “http://” and “wordpress.com”?! The only reason I’m telling you this (my stories are shorter in person) is to let you know that I had to create a new email. I’ve been wondering why you guys hadn’t been bothering me about anything besides Favoriting every Tweet I ever Twat, but now I understand. I moved and I didn’t change my address, something I did in real life too and that’s why someone off the Morgan stop has MY Girlfriend’s shirt! VINTAGE.
Talk to me! katepilgrim1 AT gmail DOT com until I can get a hold of Cat and figure out what the password for firstname.lastname@example.org is. LIFE.
Also this means that you probably haven’t seen this picture blown up in a while, so I’ll leave you with that…

It’s about damn time the world got to have and hold Perfect Trip, the newest Darlings record.
I am avoiding hyperbole when I admit to you that I am obsessed with this record. Listen and join me:
