    I don't know if it's cause St. Patrick's Day is coming up (I don't really even care honestly) but Flogging Molly's album Swagger still rips. Especially this song, Devil's Dance Floor. https://youtu.be/YPaz0p2dpEk

    The fuckin' Go-Gos, son! 
    They came up on shuffle and it just demanded a record or two's worth. I now believe that the secret MVP of the Go-Gos is Kathy Valentine (bass). Never thought about it before today, but the bass always seems to be doing the right thing and it really sets their tone well. 

    Also, could it be that they were a huge influence for the Smiths, particularly with an eye to the rhythm section? I'm listening to You Can't Walk in Your Sleep, and aspects of it feel super Smiths-y.

    So, today on Bandcamp.com all proceeds go straight to the artists! So, if there is an artist out there you would love to support, I know from personal experience, it would be MOST appreciated! I'll just pick a band, oh I don't know, let's say a band from Cincinnati called The Newport Secret Six. Yeah, everyone loves rocksteady and reggae right?  ;)

    I'm still not 100% if I like it or not but 100 gecs new album definitely makes me feel something:

    Why would Michael Jackson dance with Roland Orzable? (starts about 30 seconds in)

    This is just music, no lyrics, from Sufjan Stevens. Highly recommend. This is exactly the shit I'm into.

    He dropped it early because of COVID-19.

    Thanks for the heads up on that! In case it interests anybody as well Shearwater announced yesterday that they did something similar through their Bandcamp page too. I heaven't heard it yet, but I really enjoyed their sort of 30 minute meditation release that they did a ways back. Between those two releases I think my work from home day will be pretty focused and pleasant. Nice!

    a few for me come to mind. Hot Snakes, Hot Water Music, Helmet, Hot Chip.

    and I can raise my hand for Q and not U. one of the most memorable shows I went to back in the day (shout out Bottom of the Hill in SF). in fact, i have that show poster in my cube.

    Man...I missed a really good Hot Snakes show a long time ago and I still regret it.   Got one for H though!!  The Hold Steady! I forgot we opened for them way back when, when I wasn't an old man.  

    And that's awesome about Q and not U.  Found one for Q but it isn't that great.  My wife reminded me QOTSA opened for NIN.  These were free tickets.  Well, almost free. I dropped off a case of Lone Star on a guy's porch for them.

    Ooooo QOTSA is a good one! didn't cross my mind.  Hot Snakes actually just played in Santa Cruz right before stuff starting shutting down. i passed cause it was on a Tuesday and b) my social distancing mentality had already kicked in.

    I feel you, man.

    For whatever reason, that day 12 years ago has started turning back over in my head a lot recently, the day when some miserable, broken guy decided he was going to take out me and my family and all the other little kids and their families in our church who had ruined his country. 

    If ever there was a song which captured the feeling of a moment, this is it.

    Eick, Mathias ('E' was also weirdly hard. I almost cheated and used "Elvis" for the custodian/Elvis impersonator at the hospital I work at. He is totally legit great.)
    Fugazi
    Guðnadóttir, Hildur (she's the one who wrote the amazing score for Chernobyl. I saw her in a small room that held about 50 people, and I was able to sit, then eventually lay down, about 10 feet from her)

    Jlin
    Kid Koala
    Lightning Bolt
    My Brightest Diamond
    The Necks
    Owens, Kelly Lee
    Perfume Genius
    Quartjar (had to go with a local band for this one. But I even have a bonus local Q: Hector Qirko)
    Rzewski, Frederic (he played The People United Will Never be Defeated in its entirety. Also got to sit on the floor about 20 feet from him, and it was sublime)
    Souleyman, Omar
    Tortoise
    Uncle Earl
    Violent Femmes
    Wu Fei
    Xylouris White
    Yo La Tengo
    Z -- nothing comes to mind...

    Thanks for the heads up. I really need to dive a little deeper into DBT. Only heard a couple of tunes, but I dig them. They talked a bit about "Three Great Alabama Icons" on Music Exists and it popped up on their playlist. Good tune. Do you have a favorite record?

    I'd say Start with Decoration Day. If you like that everything else falls into place. It's the classic lineup with Hood, Cooley and Isbell.

    New Nine Inch Nails, Ghosts V-VI, right now on their website, streaming tonight!!

    If anyone was going to drop a pandemic soundtrack, I would vote for NIN.

  • I was on a hunt (on YouTube) for instrumental background music for reading, writing, studying, etc.

    Well... I came across this pianist (Luke Faulkner). Simple, thoughtful, lovely scores... check him out.

    Here’s probably my favorite piece...

    I know I'm a few days late to the party, but fuck it. I need a little sanity fun break!
    I may not be able to fill the alphabet with shows (I have too many Bs, Ss, Ps, etc. that need to be better distributed. So many Bs and Ss), and I'm going to use the Last Name/First Name order to my convenience where needed. Let's see...
    Alice in Chains
    Breeders
    Cradle of Thorns
    Dr. Dog
    Elastica
    Franklin for Short (Folk Implosion for something a little more recognizable, but I love me some FFS and wish more people knew them)
    Guided by Voices
    Hole
    Imaad Wasif
    Jefferson Airplane
    Kool Keith
    Les Savy Fav
    Margot and the Nucear So and Sos
    Neko Case
    Okkervil River (we were late and more or less missed them, but we had tickets for them opening for Wilco and did go and I need an O, so I'm counting it.
    Pavement
    Quasi (but I too can claim Q and not U)
    Radiohead
    Shins (see Franklin For Short regarding my desire to answer The Spires)
    Tapes N Tapes (holy shit they were good)
    EDIT: the Undertow. Seth Pettersen and*
    Van Etten, Sharon
    Wilco
    X, dammit. I got nothing. My sister saw X. I saw multiple X-Men movies. Damn...
    Y (I may have seen Yo La Tengo at some point, but I don't feel comfortable claiming it)
    Z ... Look! It's Elvis! Oh, it was just a floating paper bag. Nothing to see here.

    *Super lame move, but the "U" is so hard to come by that I'm pulling the trigger

    Thanks, man. I was feeling so surprisingly good about the whole thing until the end. Man, the back of the alphabet is fuckin brutal. Ha!
    I totally think The XX counts. Figure, in library type organizations they drop the "the." Thus the super dumb joke that The The doesn't actually exist.
    I've never heard of Zeke at the Bottom of the Hill. Worth a look? Sounds intriguing.

    haha the band  is called 'Zeke' and i saw em at the Bottom of the Hill (though 'Zeke at the Bottom of the Hill is kinda catchy). i'm trying to remember who they opened up for. they're alright, not really my thing. super intense and loud. like a grungy, metal, punk band. i had never heard of them at the time, then after i felt like they would always pop up. they had a song on Tony Hawk 4 which had a loaded soundtrack and i put countless hours into.
