Boom! and Event List 09.07.05

This blog entry was constructed in the evening, in my home and posted during the workday because at home I work off a Mac, which hinders my ability to post html-rich text.

I’m not mentioning my (obvious, angry) thoughts about Katrina, the relief efforts, the lack of help for the hurricane victims in the public sector, etc, because it seems pointless and self-indulgent. But if you want to feel useful, go here and let a hurricane victim crash at your house for a few days. Lindsay Lohan is doing it.

This past weekend, saw
Xiu Xiu at Bowery (good show – snob crowd) and Oneida with The Double at a parking lot in Williamsburg. The parking lot show was run by Mighty Robot, who declined to mention the $10 cover on any listings or flyers. Since I didn’t have $10 at the time, and wasn’t keen on paying an extra $1.50 ATM charge, I simply climbed the Wburg bridge and watched the show from the walkway. The tall buildings made for some pretty excellent acoustics. The Double sound a lot less experimental now than they did two months ago. Bird’s eye photos to follow.

Last night, dropped by the Stellastarr record release at Maritime. Schmoozey. Missed Iha’s set.

internet pre-sale starts tomorrow 10am for the 10.6 Hammerstein show! Password is: rentalcar

Sanctuary Records, home of Morrissey, Tegan & Sarah, Kelly Osborne, Blues Explosion, and mothafuckin Robert Plant, is rumored to be closing shop.

Why does listing the Sahara Hotnights show make me feel old? And you may think it’s weird for me to list a $25 drum n’ bass show like Roni Size, but New Forms is one of the most solid records ever. Special CMJ event list to follow.
