Oct. 16th. The Faint. B.B. King's Blues Club.


New Years Eve Show

Yes. It's September. No one knows what they're doing yet. Take it up with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah who are playing Irving Plaza for $25. It was definitely a headscratcher but that is one cheap New Years show and I always thought the band's music was missing the sound of those cardboard and plastic blowhorn things. 119 preparty/postparty? Tix on ticketmaster or fee-free at the Irving box office. The Hennings and The Emmerlings will be in attendance with a possible appearance by the King(lewis).


Such Nice Kids

From the newsletter:

"Many of the artists on the Saddle Creek roster have taken some time in the last week to record some new tracks and organize a compilation to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The final tracklist for the compilation is coming together now and will feature Bright Eyes, Cursive, The Faint, The Good Life, Mayday, Orenda Fink, Maria Taylor, Andy LeMaster, Broken Spindles, Criteria, and others. The compilation will be made available on iTunes very soon and a CD version will be on the website and in stores as soon as possible. 100% of the proceeds from this will go to the Red Cross."

"A full tracklisting and more info will be posted on the Saddle Creek site on Monday, September 12. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the hurricane."
