DUDE — IF YOU WEREN’T AT THE BE de-TROIT SHOW LAST NIGHT AT THE BOWERY, YOU FUCKING MISSED OUT! IT WAS RAD AS ALL HELL.
I totally love The Kills. They’re amazing. Go buy everything they sell. You’ll be a happier person. Alison is this CK One-looking creature and it’s fabulous.
STILL BEN SWANK AND LOVIN’ IT!
The most surreal moment was when the little person was grinding with a really tall drunk girl during the Dirtbombs. And then Tom crowd surfed and Ben Swank poured beer down his pants and then they started fighting… as did Johnny Walker and blond dude from the Datsuns. I guess around 2a.m. things always start to get a little out of hand.
I want to give a shout out to all my peeps, and a special HOolla to Richard!
MORE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL TONIGHT.
Pics of The Dirtbombs European adventures over at Kalium.nl.
Thwoar! Craig is on the cover of the new NME. Also, the NME sadly hails Brooklyn the “coolest neighborhood on earth.” Everyone knows Manhattan is the new Brooklyn… although with the MOMA move, Queens might be the new Manhattan… watch out!
Catherine’s entry from Thursday cracked me up. Yeah… I think a LOT of people were doing the same thing last night as well. Tonight the Mercury Lounge becomes “I will do anything for a ticket.. no really, ANYTHING” central. WoohOO! Ticketholders, be prepared for a lot of propositions. Let the begging begin!
HOT MONKEY SEX @ Betty’s.
Starsailor fans in Chi-town. Check ’em on the 22nd at Virgin.
Tonight in the world of drunk.. on WFUV: “1-3 AM, The World Café: Ryan Adams is David Dye’s guest on this edition of the World Cafe. Ryan, formerly of Whiskeytown, brings his full band into the studio in support of his 2nd solo album Gold. The CD is aptly named, as it is one of the best albums of last year in David’s view.”
And hold on to your emo, kids- we have to draw the Gideon-line somewhere. (Who saw the new hair?)
Did I mention this before? The Dirtbombs hit NYC March 23 at Bowery. Holly Golightly and The Greenhornes 2 days prior, March 21 at the Mercury Lounge.
