It's that time of year again. Yup, that's right. You can now buy a wide variety of egg nog flavors at your local grocery store. That is where you'll find me. And what's with these people who say they've never had egg nog? Is it you, perhaps? Shame is a hard quality to live with my friend.
So, on this first night of Hanukkah (or as one of my co-workers said "that Jewish thing". Whatta dumb piece of crap she is.), let me send an early holiday wish to the celebrators, the non-haters, and to the band Yo La Tengo who will never read this I'm unfortunately sure.
Looking forward through this hectic month of holiday bliss, we got some action heating up in the brick mower bullpen. Most importantly, we're going to be heading in to the Hunt Stuido with Eric Bennet in mid-December. We will be expelling 11 songs from the uterus of rock n roll onto the petri-dish of magnetic tape (shhhh... actually digital micro-chips. Analog rules, but not as much when you're broke).
And here's some shows we have lined up for the season to keep you and yours warm:
-12/9- Mojo 13 Wilmington, DE w/a cool band that dropped off the bill. Others will be there now who are probably cool too.
-12/10-Savage School of Rock- Blackwood, NJ w/Period Girls, Beta Male John Wayne, Lost Weekend, +1.
-12/12- The Fire - Philadelphia, PA w/ The Sidekicks (OH), Dirt Farmer, The Dangerous Ponies
-12/28- @ a spot in New Brunswick w/ Backpocket, For Serious This Time (NY)
And if you want to pick up a gift for the band during this season of wintry bliss, I usually take XL shirts and like the game Simon, Kit takes a size 7 1/2 shoe and uses thick purple picks, and Steve takes big baking tins and 1.75 ltr bottle of Jack.
