music news from other places

  • Basia Bulat and Devotchka concert review – some thoughts on the recent show at Diesel. Don’t really agree with the Denver comment, but check it out.
  • Blurb in the Post Gazette about Olympus Mons – saw them play at Gooski’s with Suburban Sect a while back and they were pretty sweet. CD release show TOMORROW.
  • An old preview about British Sea Power – did anyone go to this show? It was last week and I’ve liked The Rosebuds ever since Chris Cain mentioned them in this great interview on The last minute is gold.
  • Aaron Jentzen talks to the Takeover UK about their new EP on Rykodisc – I know you guys like them as they are probably the most searched local band hit for gigawave. Here’s an ending quote from the drummer:

    “It’s basically just a lot of hustling, man, just getting out of Pittsburgh,” says Sickels. “You’ve just got to get out, or you’re never going to get anywhere.” Snyder quaffs his beer and offers a little barstool philosophy: “You basically have to shrug off every single responsibility that normality would give you.”

Sad but true. Unless you play hockey, do research for CMU, or curate. I can’t really think of any other career-catapulting opportunities here. ALSO, afternoon beer? Really?
