Weekend show recommendations
Let me start off by plugging a brand new radio show by a friend of mine called The Catbird Seat with Alex on WPGU in Illinois. You can listen to it streaming here. It's on Sunday night at 9PM. On the show, he brings on guests who know a thing or two about music and has them play their influences and talk about it. I'm enthusiastic about the idea because if there's anything more fun that listening to music, it's bullshitting about it.
The big event of the weekend is the Yuppie Pricks' CD Release Party at Emo's on Saturday night. The Put Downs and Young Heart Attack are opening. This release from the Pricks is their intro to the big time, at least by cruddy indie standards--they are releasing it on Alternative Tentacles. Hopefully I'll have a decent picture or two to share.
Tonight, as usual, is Mr. Lewis and the Funeral Five at Beerland. Yes, I intend to keep plugging them. They deserve more fans, dammit. They'll go on between 8 and 8:30, for early types. It also looks like there will be a Go-Go-A-Rama later that night, which better mean that the go-go dancers will be there. It's worth going to see go-go dancing in the year 2005.
