whoaaaaaaaaaaaaa

First, I'm sitting here and I heard my cell go off. which upset me at first because I thought it was Virgin Mobile just saying "you got a text message we can't let you see it because you have no money left! HA!" but instead it was an advertisement for THIS AMAZING EVENT: http://www.virginmobilefestival.com/#/lineup/

oh shitttttt. I am not so sure how I like all of them (Taking Back Sunday?) but it's free and the good bands (Franz! St. Vincent! PUBLIC ENEMY!) more than make up for it. but then it's during the school year. on a Sunday. but, you know. screw it. layout's on weekdays. and I think I might have that Monday off. fuckers! (actually classes begin that Monday, but as far as I know if I headed up immediately thereafter I'd be okay)

But back in Erie, and sooner than that, Christopher Bell will be playing the Presque Isle Coffeehouse on July 1st as part of his bike tour (some people ride those). I would go! I will go! http://www.myspace.com/thechrisbell

and finally, second to Ghostface Killah, this is the best interview I have ever encountered. http://www.spin.com/articles/qa-marilyn-manson I should start listening to him, just because of this:
This is going to be the best interview ever.
Good.... I was going to email you a photograph I just took. It's of a new piece of modern art I created. Let's call this work my Jack-off Pollack, of sorts. I had two condoms -- alien things to me, I haven't seen them in 25 years -- and I threw them on the mirror, and they stuck, and they formed this piece of modern art. And I can't decide what to call it. I'm thinking about calling it "I Don't Want You to be Cursed With My Retarded Child," or "It's Not Just Love, It's a Lifestyle," because they were Lifestyle condoms.

"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
