    The Funniest Man In America: Neil Hamburger

    He has a few records out but a couple years ago he put one called Neil Hamburger Sings Country Winners and it's basicaly the funniest thing ever. Los Angeles (and other parts of the country), Neil Hamburger will be performing at Spaceland on November 29th, and he'll be doing some comedy stuff, also at Spaceland, on October 25th. I'm tired so I'm gonna go to sleep now (yes at 9:45pm on a Saturday) - but dig all this other stuff....

    Ezra Furman & the Harpoons = Violent Femmes v.2

    I've been waiting forever to find the right time to post this. Once someone asked me, "Are there any CURRENT bands that I could go see now that are awesome and rock like Violent Femmes?" I had a really hard time coming up with an answer, and finally settled on Tapes n' Tapes, but still didn't feel like it was the right answer. A few months later I heard this fucking fantastic song on the radio, and if someone asked me who was like the femmes that they could go see now, I'd tell 'em

    Fool’s Gold at Little Radio’s Summercamp!! 8/30

    IAMSOUND records really scored with these dudes. I hear steel drums, and pretty much anything with steel drums scores points in my book. Seems like they're gonna put on a pretty entertaining show at the Little Radio shindig on Sunday. Be there or be really, really, really square.

    RIP Allen Shellenberger, 1969-2009

    So I'm not sure how I missed this, but I just heard from my guitarist yesterday that the drummer from Lit had passed away about 2 weeks ago.  The band released the following statement on their MySpace: Allen Shellenberger, drummer for Orange County rock band Lit, lost his battle with brain cancer Thursday, August 13, 2009 surrounded by his loving family, the band, and close friends. He was 39 years old.

    Silversun Pickups Swoon on Walmart Risers

    ‘There’s no secrets’ and Silversun Pickups stopped by the Risers set to let it all out about their new release ‘Swoon’, which has gotten nothing but rave reviews from bloggers and critics alike - aside from Pitchfork, of course.Personally, I'm not really too into this band. It's weird, I mean, I get the Smashing Pumpkins comparison and all, and I totally dig the Smashing Pumpkins, but this band just doesn't do it for me. Neither does a certain

    THROBBING GRISTLE LIVE, 2009: A Rundown

    So I'm TOTALLY bummed that I dropped the ball on every single chance I had to see Throbbing Gristle while they were here. But thanks to my obsessive combing of the interwebz and some good friends, I managed to peep some awesomeness in real time AND find enough resources to quench my thirst for the gristle. Check it:
