more things to do!


FIRST, in Edinboro, there is a bluegrass band playing called J.D. Crowe and the New South. I'm laying out my section as I type (ha, multitasking, not really, I have other work I should be doing) and I believe tickets are $5 to the public and free to EUP students. Not my cup of tea really but I have to go and I'm not completely sure I'm going to have room for this story. meh. I really should get a pull-out section. NO WAY I AM TRIMMING THAT "REVOLUTIONARY ROAD" REVIEW. IT'S ART.

Then, in Cleveland, there is the Cleveland International Film Festival. I cannot go to this. but I'd like to go to this. www.clevelandfilm.org. I have not heard of any of those films, because I'm uncultured like that. but if you're into that stuff....you pretentious bastard...

Moving on, Tuesday- and normally I would not announce things like this, because the music is minimally interesting to me- the Albers Trio is playing at noon at Penn State Behrend. But then I saw a picture of them. www.alberstrio.com. I don't have to say anything more.

Back to my stomping grounds, Edinboro has ArtsWeek and a Writers' Series coming up next week. Partake in events from both! this means I will be BIZEEEEE, as Sigma Tau Delta's little bitch, and giving the reigns to Al. again. hay. more on these events to follow, though, because they are big events. 

My stress this week has been outstanding. my body cannot function. six nights it was too painful to get a lot of sleep. 'sweird. I'm not doing very well in my one class as of the moment and would like to leave on a bus and never come back here ever again. does anyone really read these things when it doesn't concern "Kyle XY?" mmm probz not. 

LASTLY:  "DON'T STOP" COMES  OUT IN A MONTH. I AM IN LOVE WITH ANNIE AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO. "ANTHONIO" IS OUT:  check it at her MySpace.
and read her blogs, they're the most adorable things ever.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
