Thursday night (cont.) / Corndogorama!

Looks like I won't have time to do a proper post on Mark Kozelek, but our friend Greg from Captain's Dead has come through in the clutch. He's posted a Kozelek show from February 2005 in three installments. Go there to download it.

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Part 3 has a bonus pic of Annie Hardy from Giant Drag lookin' downright crush-worthy.

UPDATE, 5/18, 2:20 PM: Captain's Dead has the final installment of the show up now!

Part 4

In addition to the happenings at The EARL and Variety Playhouse tonight, I completely overlooked the fact that Pinback is playing at The Roxy this evening. Yeesh.

This is normally where I'd make a cheeky comment about the Sox hat, but I can't bring myself to do it right now. Sigh.

It's a crime that All the Saints aren't on the lineup.

Could they still be added? There are a few TBA slots on the schedule. Oddly enough, one of them is the headliner for Sunday. That's strange.

I'll give Dave a call tonight and see if they can squeeze in. I don't know if you've seen them Rich, but they're headlining the EARL June 1st. You should come and bring your mics. I can probably get you on the list. Let me know.

I haven't seen them yet. Actually, I think the name turned me off before b/c of that British girl group called All Saints. Funny that. But I bet I can make it down on 6/1 after Hard Day's Night @ the park. If they're headlining they won't be on until 11:30-12:00 anyway.

By the way, I can't find their MySpace page now. What's the URL?

These songs are a horrible representation of their sound, though. 'Hard Lung' was recorded in their basement before a six-month break from live shows. Their sound developed quite a bit during that break, as they practiced every night. 'Jesus' is a better idea of what they're like, but you should just see them live to get a true impression. They also love to change sections and tempos of songs live to keep things fresh. If you like Dead Meadow, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, or early Floyd, I'm sure you will find something of interest.

Just so you know, I think The Sweet Loves is the new band of Adam and Shannon from Anna Kramer.
