Here’s how today was supposed to go: Work from 10:00 - 2:00 Drive to Wicker Park from Jeff Park and take the Damen blue line, since I’d end up there later Catch Archie Powell & the Exports at 2:40, then Empires at 5:20 Head over to MOBfest and see Yeah Dude, South Jordan, & Kids These Days Back to Wicker Park to see Adam play keys for Scott Lucas for a Ron Wood birthday thing. Drive...
And this Tumblr app kinda sucks.
Even though I’m doing jack during the summer, I still get super excited for weekends. Jesse and Ben are (jokes, he’s still in Nashville. sad face.) is in town! Gonna see Fountains of Wayne with them tonight at MOBfest. FoW is more than just “Stacy’s Mom,” you guys. Seriously. Give their other stuff a listen. Possibly going to Fearless Radio with Yeah Dude tomorrow....
So. Warped Tour...
I can’t believe it starts next week. This time last year (and the previous years), I had my band list/schedule all ready to go. This year, I don’t even remember who was announced. I think I was just really excited to be able to see AM Taxi five times on the tour. Don’t get me wrong; I love Warped regardless. I find out about so many awesome bands and get to see a lot of my favorites. It just...
That is all.
I hate L.A.
Seriously. Stop taking my friends.
I've been to around 90 shows so far this year.
I went to 100 in 2010. Why am I so broke?
St. Louis, I'm coming for you. Hopefully.
I need to really start saving my money. I’m planning on going to STL in a month for Model Stranger, then coming back up with them the next day. Then when I heard the Missouri dates for the Ludo / Sparks the Rescue / Tommy & the High Pilots / Stamps tour (the Chicago date is the day before the MS show in STL), I found out they were during the same week that Warped Tour’s there. So...

Try this out.
I’m at work now, and since Last.fm doesn’t do free radio streaming anymore (the other lady used up all the free Pandora hours), I decided to listen to Idobi Radio on iTunes. I owe a lot to this station. I started listening to it in 2002. It’s the reason I found out about Lucky Boys Confusion, Allister, The Dog & Everything…the locals that got me started. Now while...
Tommy & the High Pilots. AM Taxi. Treaty of Paris....
Hour and a half long sets. I can’t even handle it. Sheffield & Addison, starting at 2:30PM. Be there.
