Dukes Up!

So yeah, as you've noticed, we at TPM have barely been able to post for the last week or so. Del and Rach were at ACL and then had to assimilate back into their normal, non-festival-going lives. Mad props to them for holding up the phone during Wolf Parade’s set for me. It’s almost as if I were actually there…

I had a massively successful album release and show for The Big Sleep this past Tuesday and Thursday. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported them- the show was so much fun!

And Mega is chilling with her mom in Italy, probs drinking boatloads of vino and massive quantities of pasta. Damn her!

Now, before I throw myself back into my life's work, I wanted to point out that there is someone out there who is willing to fight me for the president of the Spencer Krug fanclub.

Last week- this photo was in my email inbox:

and I countered it with this:

We shall see what happens tonight when both me and my adversary are in the same room with the man himself. CK1 (kate) and I were at the show last night and I’m still on a high from it. How can one band be so immeasurably talented? Spencer was in an amazing mood, cracking jokes and interacting with the rambunctious crowd. His new moustache is a thing of beauty… well maybe only to me. Someone in the crowd yelled out “You look like Magnum P.I.!” and when he put on his sweat-head band, he claimed he was The Karate Kid Magnum P.I.”

Oh that guy. He can do no wrong.

I’m pretty sure they played almost every song off of “Shut Up I’m Dreaming Of Places Where Lovers Have Wings”, plus a new one, as well as Winged/Wicked Things, and an updated Three Colours.

Anyways, hope you are coming tonight, or else you’ll be missing out BIG TIME.

Moments Like Deez

Whoooooo Wheeee! What a day at the office I've had. It's been non-stop and I don't really forsee a break for awhile. But that's ok, I can't complain. Although I should point out that I offered a certain Holmes my first child if he'd help me out on a review.

Anyways, it's 6:40p and I'm taking a brief break, before I pound out somemore work and then head for the soccer field to avenge our last Icy Hot losses.

What am i going to do to relax you ask? well I'm glad you did.

1. I'm going to unwind to music that I love. Right now: Ferraby Lionheart, Eagle Seagull, Swan Lake (well only what has leaked), WP, Beirut, Destroyer, Ween... pretty much nothing has changed in my rotation of tunes for the past couple weeks.

Check out the new Eagle*Seagull video for Photograph. Yaps anyone?

2. Search for things to go in my new apt in Brooklyn with CK1 (Kate!)

Who wants to be the Jack to our Janet and Chrissy? Wait, please say I'm not Janet.

3. Fantasize about the weekend. Free Love as Laughter show AND bday parties for Sono Oto and 3xWes!

4. Check up on how my favorite panda, Tai Shan is doing at DC's National Zoo with Panda Cam.

5. Shooting angry thoughts at Rach and Del for going to ACL without me. How i'm going to make it through tomorrow's Wolf Parade set by phone... I do not know.

New Music Fridays

Chrashers loves White Flight. Wiscod loves White Flight. Readers of TPM... will love White Flight. Watch all four of his videos here to figure out why.

Last night Chrashers told me that he often finds new music through his fave bands myspace top 8's. And so since Chrashers loves White Flight, he came upon his new love... Black Nasty. Listen to this Witchita, KS masterpiece and hear why this band, with songs like 'Gimme Your Butt' and 'Jheri Curl', is poised to become the next big thing. Check them out at

Now That's What I Call A Video!

Check out the new video for Band of Horses 'The Great Salt Lake' featuring my boys from Seattle. All my friends are there- makes me miss that town so bad. If you watch the sidelines closely you can see 'Ja!
