i wouldn't be doing my job if i failed to mention to you all...
in case you're interested or into the likes of; Mumford and Sons, Bonnie Prince Billy, the Decemberists... you know, s*** like that.
my brother-in-law Charlie's band Sotto will be doing a show a 3 Clubs in Hollywood tomorrow night at around 8:30.
night?! i see now the time was changed from 8:30am. man, i thought it must've been some video shoot or something and that's why it was so early. well, it's hard to switch things up when you have a kiddo, so i have to miss it anyway. hope you and everyone else who goes enjoys it though.
Plus, it just doesn't sound right without Mike singing background vocals
mark your calendars... i remember when there was one every weekend, then it was reduced to Pasadena only - which i haven't been to in years.
apparently this one is held twice a year.

The Return of Jack White: Former Stripe announces solo LP, releases new single | CHARTattack
Almost a year to the day that the beloved Stripes bid adieu (February 2, 2011), White has dropped a preview of his forthcoming solo record Blunderbuss. You can now listen to “Love Interruption,” which will be released with non-album B-side “Machine Gun Silhouette”—you can pre-order that single from his website.
Got an email from Michael Gira this morning.
The Swans Double Live CD Limited Edition with special handmade packaging is now available at this link.
It is called We Rose From Your Bed With The Sun In Our Head. The music was culled from the best recordings and performances of the recent Swans tour(s) of 2010/2011. It sounds good, in my opinion!
The packaging is a handmade woodblock print of a drawing I did for the occasion. With hand coloring and detailing by yours truly, it is 4 colors, in all. Each one is signed and numbered.
This special package also contains solo recordings I made here at home of some of the songs that will appear on the upcoming Swans studio album, The Seer. I also talk about the songs, describing how they’ll be realized. These recordings will appear nowhere else other than this version.
There are various ways to buy this package, which is in essence a fundraiser for The Seer. Your purchase of one of these options goes a long way towards seeing the new studio album come to fruition. Thanks for your support!!!!!
Thanks to all of you who showed up along the way as we toured, and we look forward to seeing you later in 2012, when we’ll again commence touring for a year or so.
The Seer, by the way, is set to be a triple vinyl/2XCD/Digital release. The special 2XCD edition that will be available exclusively through younggodrecords.com and live shows will also include a live Swans DVD.
I Love You! - Thanks!
