Join me and DJ Deathstalker, live and in person, not just on the radio alone in your room, at Le Voyeur tomorrow night, Sunday June 25th, for a night of popsongs, post-punk, and pure evil. Think about it. New Order, Nothing Painted Blue, Magnetic Fields, Merzbow, Boyracer, Ramones, Tullycraft, Heavenly....that sort of sordid thing.

Minor Threat Joins the War On Drugs
Neato. Andrew Beaujon of Eggs and co-founder of Teen Beat records (according to All Music Guide, please correct me if I'm wrong, must relisten to that Mark Robinson interview I did in 96) has written a book about Christian rock called Body Piercing Saved My Life.

With much delight Tullycraft have decided to enter the 21st century with wacky blogginess. Check out those beards.

My attempt to document the joy this band brings to my life is contained in my Tullycraft photo set.

Also, new recordings in the works, at least two Tullycraft shows this summer.

Saturday, July 8th @ The Sunset Tavern w/ Racetrack, and Parenthetical Girls
Saturday, August 5th @ The Sunset Tavern (Ballard)w/ Boat

And in other pop news, Casper and the Cookies and Keith John Adams will be making their way across the country all the way to my lovely town of Olympia in September. I'm thinking an afternoon barbeque show followed by something on KAOS that night if possible, but we'll see how it actually pans out.

If anyone is morbidly following the truck crash story Matt has posted more info, links to his Flickr photos of the accident etc. A benefit show is in the works (of course).

Also, I am ALMOST done with school for this term. I am taking my time with this final, but as soon as the final is done I can get back to life. I'm looking forward to #1 Sonic Youth on June 30th in Seattle, and the fantabulous Fishboy show I'll be putting on July 21st in Olympia. And ATHENS Popfest.

For those of you who know I keep other blogs, I was thinking about moving to the East Coast. Now that school stress has died down I'm thinking of sticking around, not taking so many classes at once, and just enjoying all the things I get to do here LIKE put on shows, wear jeans to work, and pay less than $500 a month for a really nice apartment. Something about the sunshine, the farmers market, the little treasures I find on the ground (last night I found a glittery magic wand, today an unused sage smudge stick) has me feeling better.
Just a wee update:
Jeremy's report on the damage. No he didn't have renter's insurance so donations are being taken on the DailyKos front page. Jeremy was the first friend I met when I moved to Olympia and I am so grateful that the family wasn't home when this happened.

So I'm sitting here feeling pathetic that I have nothing important to blog about and that my niche blogging is distracting people from the real issues of the day etc. Mainly because my good friend Jeremy is in Las Vegas at the Daily Kos convention doing important political work. He's on the Daily Kos payroll (doing that stuff computer geeks do, programming and whatnot) and likes to rub it in that I used to criticize him for being apolitical and he ended up being a part of one of if not the most important innovations in modern Democracy.

Well, apparently he's coming home early as a truck crashed into his house last night.
