    I saw Primus/Firehose/Cracker at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, circa 1991.

    Awesome show

    I love the music videos and the shows look great (I miss the 90's )...

    These are some great bands here. The British people know their music.

    I just picked up the aforementioned Vampire Weekend album. It's great stuff.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Tonight @ The Orpheum in Boston I saw Honey Honey open for Matt Nathanson who opened for Lifehouse.

    First time hearing Matt Nathanson, and I must say I was definitely entertained.

    Do a lot of people actually like July For Kings? Maybe I just don't get it. Their stuff sounds so mediocre to me.

    Also, Television has to be one of the more underrated/underappreciated bands ever. It happens when you don't have a lot of material though. Julian from The Strokes said that Television is by far their biggest influence (which makes sense).

    Anyway, I'll make a few recommendations.

    The first is to check out Panic at the Disco's new record, "Pretty Odd." They're not exactly a new band, but the record is new and it sounds really good. It sounds nothing like their first effort and musically, this album sounds like a Beatles record (a cross between "Sgt. Pepper" and "Magical Mystery Tour"). I did not care for their first album at all, but this is a special record.

    Secondly, I recommend Duffy. Great singer from Whales and she's like this really cool hodgepodge sound of Dusty Springfield, Norah Jones, Dolly Parton, Amy Winehouse and some others I'm not thinking of. I'm curious to see how she'll be embraced in America.

By the end of the concert he was down in the crowd leaning against a column, singing a capella with sweat pouring off him as everybody stood there enraptured. A really unique musician. I've never even bought his stuff -- I suspect that he is someone, like Ian Moore, who is a live artist, period...or at least someone who never measures up on record once you've seen him live. Great stuff. he has a real mish-mash of old styles going on that sound really old school in person that I don't think would translate to record.

    I'm enjoying a band called Dodos this week. Bit poppy, bit rhythmic, bit all over the place...they're fun.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I discovered Butch Walker during the Hair Band Hey Day when he was with Southgang. I thought he had slipped into obscurity until I did a search for Southgang on You Tube and it gave me the video for M3's "Freak of the Week". I was blown away by the transformation in musical style over what he used to do.

    I kind of see his style as being as you said, a mish mash, mostly of Queen, David Bowie, and still some 80's hard rock roots.

    I was really disappointed that I found out who Marvelous 3 was 8 years after Butch, Jayce, and Slug called it quits.

    I've been listening to Bush's Sixteen Stone. I know I'm about 15 years behind most of the stuff I discover...
