An evening of firsts.
Tonight is the first time I'm putting on a show at The Empty Bottle. It is also the first time I've been able to get Frisbie on a Tankboy bill, although we've been trying to work together for over seven years now! It is also Sleeps With The Fishes' first ever show; fancier folks might even call it their debut. it is also the first time I'll be seeing Aaron (an old and close friend, and guitarist for Spanish For 100) since he quit working for The Man and decided to work in independent radio instead.
MP3: Frisbie "S.F.B."
MP3: Spanish For 100 "Attack!"
MP3: Sleeps With The Fishes "Biting Heads"
MP3: Sleeps With The Fishes "Leave You"
Across town The Bomb Squad begins our two-night stand at Liar's Club. Tonight we're upstairs -- some fine rock bands are playing downstairs -- and we've lined up White Stripes Icky Thump giveaways and will be previewing the album for our lucky partners in dancecrime. Josh De La Scala, DJ Rudy Tuesday, and DJ Fisticuffs will be holding court as your musical guides for the evening. Tomorrow the core Squad -- June Cleavage, Amber Waves, and I -- will be spinning downstairs ... but more about that tomorrow.
And did I mention I'm DJing at The Continental Saturday night? man is this a busy week ...
