I really need to stop working Friday nights… Here’s your advance warning for a pretty ideal FREE show at Lulu’s!
If you haven’t heard the “new” Nude Beach stuff (versus the stuff from June 2011 when I saw them with Liquor Store), you gotta.
Add in the always mind-blowing Crystal Stilts and the really hard to google-search What Next? (who I think is made of ex-German Measles people but I can’t find confirmation. Whatever, we saw them open for Twerps a while ago and it was really good).
To sweeten the deal, you realize Lulu’s is one of those bars that does a free pizza for every drink you drink? Probably my favorite of the free pizza bars cos the pizza is good and there’s Christmas lights usually. This is the kinda show I would absolutely pay money for. 9 PM!

That up there should actually say “Western Mass” instead of “NYC” but it’s about where the band’s playing and tomorrow these dudes are at Death By Audio sooo please forgive me.
I’m writing this post because
A. Have been trying to be better about posting!
B. It’s a Wednesday and I’m having a very hardcore futon day with my roommate.
C. Last time I said to friends “Seriously listen to this band” it was Parquet Courts back forever ago and now they’re all everywhere and it rules but I didn’t blog about them until later and so no one except for my friends who had to listen to me know. You can’t be relevant if no one hears you.
So, these guys.
Pretty good eh? I love music.
See for yourself tomorrow at Death by Audio wiiiiiitttth:

Well here we are, the night of approximately 56,098 events. I realize you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, confused, happy, sad, mad and hungry while looking right in the face of a giant case of FOMO. Happens to the best of us, and there is no wrong decision. That being said, welcome to the post where I present three reasons to come hang out with us at Danny Screams in Not Kent Street Williamsburg tonight.
B. Danny Screams!
WHAT! A place you might not have been to before!!! Isn’t that what New York’s all about?!!? A cool spot at Grand and Leonard, I think you can see Bushwick Country Club from it? Just in case you need cheese balls. But yeah, nice dudes who let us have the best time back in December – more here.
C. DJs Elfgirl and KatePilgrim!
Working in a venue ourselves, we know well that the biggest buzz kill is when the crowd turns and runs as soon as the last band is over. WHERE ARE YOU GOING? DO YOU LIKE US? Well, not here, not tonight. I always say that my friend Becky is the one who taught me to dance in public and Erin (Elfgirl) is the one who showed me it’s cool to dance at shows. And I don’t dance unless it’s GOOD, so you know no bad songs will touch your ears.
That’s all I got. If you’re seeing some other band (why), you should come by for the dance portion of the evening. If you’re planning on dancing somewhere else, you should come for the band portion of the evening. If you need to stay in and go to bed early, that’s fair and we all need that sometimes.
TREAT YO SELF.
