A Few Things

November 29, 2006

Here are a few things I’ve been enjoying on YouTube recently.

I just discovered this gem, the video for “Pump Up the Volume” by MARRS:

If you’re one of those people who have always been curious to see The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of The Moon playing, but have never had the chance or initiative to actually take the time to put the two together, here’s a 10-minute clip someone put together just for people like you:

Finally and randomly, I might add, here is the video for Wolf Parade’s “Modern World”:

Bouncing Souls

November 29, 2006

I know it’s pretty last-minute of me to remind you that Bouncing Souls are playing tonight at the Gargoyle with Street Dogs, Whole Wheat Bread, and Left Alone, but that’s exactly what I’m doing. Bouncing Souls are one punk band that I continue to listen to throughout the years, even as my music tastes change, morph, and broaden. Their knack for a brain-drilling melody and their street sense help them transcend any allegations of trendiness or bandwagon hopping.

MP3’s:
Bouncing Souls – Gold Song
Bouncing Souls – Sing Along Forever
Bouncing Souls – Punks in Vegas
Bouncing Souls – True Believers
Bouncing Souls – Code Blue (TSOL cover)
Bouncing Souls – Night on Earth
Bouncing Souls – Kate Is Great

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

November 28, 2006


Would Boris Yeltsin ever poison an ex-KGB spy? I think not. And the members of Springfield, MO-based Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin probably don’t think so, either…. but I don’t know for sure. Don’t worry, though — you can ask them yourself when they perform at the Creepy Crawl on Tuesday, December 12, with The Changes. You know you want to.

MP3’s:
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Oregon Girl
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – House Fire
The Changes – When I Wake

Mississippi Nights

November 28, 2006

Well, the rumor mill’s at it again; this time, it’s another rumor predicting the closing of Mississippi Nights. It apparently has to do with the new Casino being built on the Landing. Is this true? Are they planning on moving to a new location? Please comment if you know anything more. Hopefully, it’s only a rumor.

The Oranges Band

November 27, 2006

The Oranges Band are playing at Off Broadway this Tuesday, November 28th, with local bizarre-pop band Shed Shot. I’m a big fan of The Oranges Band’s jangly take on pop-punk and power pop. A definite point of reference is Ted Leo, but listen to the mp3’s provided below to make up your own mind. I am definitely looking forward to the show.

The Oranges Band – If These Stars Are Struck
The ORanges Band – All The Ghosts In Your House
The Oranges Band – Stars Are Ours (Stuck)

Silversun Pickups

November 26, 2006

As Annie Zaleski has astutely noted on the Riverfront Times Blog, Silversun Pickups have canceled their show with Wolfmother tonight and their in-store performance at Vintage Vinyl due to their being booked to perform on David Letterman tomorrow.
