Pick the album up on itunes and get the track “If You TalkToo Much (My Head Will Explode)[Bonus Acoustic Track]".
607 puts out a new album every 3 months. His newest is Devil's Violin.
Check him out tonight at Art Amiss 4 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. @ Dickson Theater 7pm : $5
Be friends with him on myspace and check out a few tracks.
People In Planes were also just added to VH1's Artists You Ought To Know list featuring the likes of James Blunt and The Fray.
Make sure to Pick up the new album As Far As The Eye Can See this Tuesday when it is released. It may be on its way to mainstream media, but I am a little partial to their album. I also have an autographed postcard available if anybody is interested.
Anyways, The Exit put on a good and exciting show. I was also unaware that they played live with a saxophonist. The set started with a duet featuring the bassist/vocalist and the keyboardist from Straylight Run. They then progressed into a hefty set including highlights like "Back to the Rebels", "Don't Push", and "Pressure Cooker". If you like rock at its finest I recommend these guys all emo aside. I'm not ripping on Straylight either, rather The Spill Canvas. Note to Self: Avoid Emo Bands!
A Little Place Called The Public Theater (Grand Serenade and Sugar and the Raw @ Public Theater 3-10-06)0 Comments Published by cbotwell on at 12:30 AM.
Sugar and the Raw played first giving a great collection of songs, and definitely playing a great show. Grand Serenade followed them with a great run through their discography. Sadly they didn't play many of my favorite oldies.
Off of the topic of the movie, this soundtrack is superb. An excellent selection of Beethoven is included, along with other classics like Singing in the Rain and I Want To Marry A Lighthouse Keeper. The juxtaposition of these tracks with the eerie and bizarre work of Walter Carlos create one of my favorite soundtracks and a very memorable one as well.
First in the lineup is Fayetteville shows. Parts & Labor with Illease and locals Tel Aviv, who you all know from my Arkansas Artists Post.
Next We have Little Rock shows. Now I have tickets to these, but am to lazy to drive home tonight and I have a test tomorrow. Ted Leo / Rx with The Duke Spirit and Les Aus are at Vino's Brew Pub, and there is an aftershow featuring my favorites Man Man at Whitewater Tavern. I highly recommend Man Man if you are 21 and can get in.
The final concert is in Oklahoma and includes Thunderbirds Are Now! , Rahim, and El Paso Hot Button.
If you like noise in your music, but feel you are missing something by the performers not expressing themselves, you will love the voices Man Man does. Take a listen to a couple songs and then pick up the full album you will not be disappointed.

S&TR with Grand Serenade Public Theater/Little Rock
Make sure to check out S&TR this Friday at the Public Theater in Little Rock with zombies favorites Grand Serenade.
S&TR 3-17-06 (Valley of the Vapors Festival) Schapiro's/ Hot Spirings, Arkansas 9:00p.
decided to reemerge as early twenty-something white boys, then lace their sound
with wiry guitars, jungle percussion, horns that feel like tornados and a dance
party. If that could happen, it would look and sound something like Sugar and

Locksley is a band who I heard about through the wonderness that is You Ain't No Picasso. Their track She Does sold me right off the bat with their obvious similarities to British invasion bands like the Beatles. Make sure to check these guys out on their latest tour and buy their 2005 EP here, where it can also be streamed, or on itunes.
Locksley is a four-piece rock and roll band, in the grand tradition. Hailing
back to the early Beatles/Kinks days of the British Invasion, Locksley are equal
parts raucous, energetic live performers and precise, melodic songwriters.
Although the friends from Madison, Wisconsin's West High School performed
together with regularity during those formidable years, the Locksley story
doesn't really begin until the boy's mutual love of a band set them on the road
to New York.

Just a little update and some links here. Check out this really cool shirt from threadless. Its titled hipster doll. I think if you wanted to you could actually print he picture and cut it out. Make sure to get it while its hot, and before it sells out.[link]
I posted this link on another site, but its a copy of Jimi Hendrix performing on It Must Be Dusty! June 12 1968. It includes a rare duet with female vocalist and host Dusty Springfield and Jimi himself. It also contains the first "official" public performance of Voodoo Child (Slight Return).

I figured I'd also take this time to update you on a few of my favorite albums that I have been listening to lately. I'll have a new mix up soon.
- Blood On the Wall -Awesomer 
- Finian Mckean - Shades Are Drawn 
- Mogwai - Mr. Beast 
- Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones (Not Final Version)
Take a listen to these if you get the time. Buy them at Insound.
Measles Mumps Rubella have released their new album, and I think a 7.9 from pitchfork would be considered as a rating of approval. This song Algorithm of Desire seems to me to be what makes MMR so great. This is one of my new favorite songs and I like nearly everything about it. I probably listened to it 8 times after the first listen. What creates a great element of the song is the breathing added to the singers vocals. I do love my dance-punk music and this song is a new favorite. Recommended for fans of !!! or just dance -punk in general. Hopefully the rest of the album, Fantastic Success, is as good. Read the Pitchfork review here. [buy] [myspace]
See them on tour March 14 at Whitewater Tavern w/ A Fir Ju Well in Little Rock, Ar.
