I'm seeing Art Brut and blogger favorite Birdmonster tonight. Excited about the former, dreading the latter -- I intentionally avoided them during SXSW, that's how uninterested I am. So, should make for an interesting full report tomorrow, huh?
Art Brut -- Good Weekend (repost)
Art Brut -- Rusted Guns of Milan
Seen out and about this weekend at the John Vanderslice/Laura Veirs/Minus Story show: Mrs. Gerard Cosloy (nee Sally Crewe) escorted by the always dapper Mr. Jim Eno (of Spoon), sound dude extraordinare & man about town Jeff Byrd (who was in the company of long-lost TRGAW housemate Glamourous Glynis...), Shearwater percussion master Thor Harris, and former Silver Scooter Scott Garred -- among others! (BTW, the cupcakes were a hit! I wish I'd thought to take a picture.)
My mom writes about my grandfather getting older and his music collection on her blog -- it was hard to read, as his grandchild and a music collector.
So, the big question of the day is: Who leaked the fabled and unreleased Mountain Goats album Hail and Farewell, Gothenburg! this weekend? And was it really on the Good Hodgkins site, at least for a little while? Would I get in horrible trouble if I just posted "You're So Vain?" (Answers: Dunno. Yes, apparently. MOST DEFINITELY, SO PLEASE DON'T ASK.)
