I was going to post tonight about the Great Escape.Â I really was.Â But then I started emailing people, and then I started chatting online, and then it became 11pm.Â And really, I should go to bed now.Â I have a fuckton of work to do tomorrow and I need to kinda concentrate.Â Well, at least if I donâ€™t want anyone to be deported.
That would be bad.
I am so loving the new New Buffalo album, Somewhere, Anywhere.Â It all started with Cheer Me Up Thank You and right now itâ€™s all about Stay With Us.Â Thereâ€™s a lot to love about this album, including the sparse and almost quirky vocals, the sweet melodies, and the very good lyrics.Â Itâ€™s heart salve is what it is.
On Saturday night, if I donâ€™t BURST WITH ANTICIPATION between now and then, I see Wilco.Â Wayne posted a dream set list and I tell you, itâ€™s not half bad.Â If they come even close to this Iâ€™ll walk away deliriously happy.Â I hope they balance out the new stuff with the old â€“ seemingly from past set lists theyâ€™ve done this, but I guess you never know.
We all need to send collective brain vibes to Jeff et. al. so they play Shot In The Arm, okay?Â Thanks.
