Wed. Night via Nepotism

Whatcha up to? Going out tonight? Hitting the downtown scene with the scene kids? Trying to be seen? No? Well, then this post isn't for you. This post is for my downtown on a Wednesday night kind of people. My people who work in the morning but still wanna see When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth play the Mohawk's inside stage tonight. My people who are ok with the fact that the show won't end 'till 2am. Maybe I should digress at this point before I've convinced all of us to stay home and make love to the DVR.

Or hey, you know what? If "doom-rock" isn't really what you're down with, the Glitoris is taking 4th street to Church and tonight is the inaugaral throw-down. Dress up for Church at Oil Can Harry's tonight and listen as their sound system makes noises it has NEVER made before. There are rumblings of a red wine special via faux-eucharist. Going too far? You decide!

So, you don't want doom-rock or electro-homo dance party at a gay bar? What's wrong with you? Well, don't worry I have your back. Bloggy-favs, TV Torso are playing a tour-kickoff show tonight on Emo's inside stage. If you're reading this "from away" then make sure you click the band's name, above, to see if they'll be hitting your town.

Remember that CD of Matisyahu live at Stubb's? Well, he's doing a live sequel tonight. I feel like tickets will be available for last-minute purchase but mayhaps me underestimates the draw of Matisyahu? Mayhaps indeed.

So, that's what I may or may not be up to tonight. Perhaps I'll see you on the Night Owl bus?

New Matthew Dear LP

Maybe it's the sweaty summer days, or maybe it's just my mood lately but I've been rocking the dance music a lot this summer. Needless to say I've been obsessed with the stuff Robyn has put out lately but I'm looking forward to hearing the new one from Matthew Dear tomorrow. I was kind of late to the party on Matthew Dear but my old roommate loved him. I'm terrible at all of the sub-genres of electronic music so I'll let you decide for yourself what you want to categorize his sound as. Or you could go with what his Wiki entry says.

I have to include this remix, as I was obsessed with the XX all winter/spring.

If you're not feeling the electronic music tomorrow you can get your sensitive singer-songwriter on with new releases from both David Gray and Ray LaMontagne. Personally I save music like that for the winter but there's no reason you can't buy it now and listen to it when the weather cools off.
