Metro just announced that the Lawrence Arms are playing a show there on January 7, 2012. I am super excited for this one. It’s been far too long since I’ve seen them:

You can download a new song (“Dreamers”) from Savoir Adore over at Spinner.

I just got my Craig Finn tickets in the mail so that gives me an excuse to post one of his solo videos:

Last night I saw Hot Rod Circuit at Bottom Lounge. It was a relatively small show but I had a good time. I’m glad I finally got to see them live. I’ve had this song in my head all day:

Slate has an interview with Holdsteady frontman Craig Finn where he discusses his solo album.

Speaking of Craig Finn, he’s scheduled to play the Empty Bottle on February 7, 2012.

Apparently all the good shows are coming in February:

  • Jeff Mangum plays Athenaeum Theater on February 6, 2012 and February 7, 2012
  • Other Lives plays Lincoln Hall on February 10, 2012
  • Sharon Van Etten plays Linclon Hall on February 16, 2012 and February 17, 2012

Speaking of Other Lives, there’s a nice live concert video of them streaming on Arte Live Web.

Also, it looks like Wild Flag is playing Metro on April 5, 2012. I’ll be sure to clear my calendar

Telekinesis recently released a new video for their song “Country Lane”:

Junip was on Kimmel the other night. Check it out at Stereogum.

Craig Finn has an update on his solo album entitled Clear Hear Full Eyes.

There’s a new Tegan and Sara live album entitled Get Along and it’s streaming over at Rolling Stone.

Last night was We Were Promised Jetpacks at Metro. They were great as always. They had a ton of energy and the sound was amazing. I’m not sure whether it sold out but there were ton of people there. I’m glad to see that more people are getting into them. The guys handled the transition to Metro with no hangups. They started the set with “Circles and Squares.” They played about an even amount of songs from both albums. They didn’t do an encore and they ended the night with “It’s Thunder and It’s Lightning.” It was a good show and I had a blast.

Alternative Press has an article with Ben Nichols looking back on Lucero’s That Much Further West.

Metro just announced that the Falcon is opening for Naked Raygun. Now I’m even more inclined to go.

I don’t know how I didn’t hear this Chuck Ragan song until today, it features Brian Fallon as well:
