The RAA is coming to town this fall. They play Schubas on October 29, 2012.

Ben Gibbard is coming out with a solo album in October, read about it over at AV Club.

Guided By Voices is coming to Metro on August 11, 2012.

Here’s a live acoustic version of “Unicorn Odyssey” by the Falcon:


I was watching this video of the Ben Gibbard performance at SXSW. I am kind of bummed I didn’t get to see him but I am pretty sure that was one of those shows where I would have ended up waiting all day and still not get in.  It also makes me nostalgic for the days back in college when I listened to Death Cab all the time.

Here’s another video from SXSW.  It’s Savoir Adore playing acoustic in some random parking lot. The more I listen to this band, the more I like them. “Bodies” is definitely one of my most listened to songs of the month.

It’s over a month away but I am debating whether I should already buy tickets to the Murder by Death show. I have Killbot 2000 stuck in my head.

Speaking of debates, I can’t decide whether I should buy a 3 day pass to Lollapalooza. I am not averse to festivals but Lolla last summer was such a disappointment compared to the experience I had at ACL 2008.

Lin says I need to listen to the Local Natives and the Clues.

And while I am on the subjects of recommendations, Sondre Lerche and John Vanderslice recommend that everyone listen to the Morning Benders. I saw a little bit of them at SXSW but I wish I had stuck around for more. Check out this awesome video of them:
