Last week NPR posted a pretty good video of Deer Tick’s John McCauley performing “Main Street” in front of some portable toilets.

My friend Audrey wrote up a review of Metric’s Synthetica, you can read it over at Pigeon Town.

Refused plays Chicago tonight, it should be a great time. Here’s a random video of them playing a small show in Ireland back in 1998:

Rumor has it that Big Boi is playing Pitchfork Fest.

Speaking of Pitchfork, they have a video up of Here We Go Magic playing SXSW. Don’t forget that they are opening for White Rabbits at Metro later this month.

On a more personal note, I am going to see Deer Tick tonight @ Bottom Lounge, tomorrow night it’s Japandroids @ Lincoln Hall, and Monday is another trip to Lincoln Hall for The Morning Benders.

Stars has their new single “Fixed” available as a free download.

Cursive covers Starship for the A.V. Club and it’s pretty terrible.

Deer Tick has a new song, entitled “Twenty Miles” for download. It’s a little less country, a little more Rolling Stones. Also, I just realized that Andy isn’t in the band anymore. Does that mean no more “Dance of Love”? I guess we shall see on Thursday.

Babelgum has a video of the xx performing at the SXSW Lawn Party.

Also, for those keeping track, this Friday’s Japandroids show at Lincoln Hall just sold out.

Like every month there are a bunch of shows I want to go. I tried to limit myself this month but it was hard:

  • April 8, 2010 – Deer Tick, Those Darlins @ Bottom Lounge
  • April 9, 2010 – Japandroids @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 12, 2010 – The Morning Benders @ Schubas
  • April 17, 2010 – Rogue Wave @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 22, 2010 – The Antlers @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 25, 2010 – White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic @ Metro

April 8, 2010 – Deer Tick, Those Darlins @ Bottom Lounge

I’ve seen Deer Tick once before. They played with Dawes at Empty Bottle last year. I really enjoyed that show despite not knowing much of their catalog. Since then, I’ve become a big fan so I’d like to see them now that I am more familiar with their songs. I’ve never seen Those Darlins but I’ve been wanting to see them for a while now; sadly I did not see them at SXSW. Moreover, I’ll probably end up going to this show because Bottom Lounge is just a few blocks from my apartment. That place rarely seems to get good shows now but when they do happen, I have to take advantage.

April 9, 2010 – Japandroids @ Lincoln Hall

An awesome band playing one of my favorite venues in the city. I saw Japandroids at SXSW and was really impressed. Those guys have tons of energy. I can’t even imagine how awesome this show will be. Japandroids on a Friday night, it’s going to be intense.

April 12, 2010 – The Morning Benders @ Schubas

Saw maybe two songs of these guys at SXSW. I have barely heard any of their music but everyone says they are awesome. Not sure if I’ll actually make it to this one but it could be fun.

April 17, 2010 – Rogue Wave @ Lincoln Hall

I listened to these guys a lot in anticipation of SXSW and I actually saw them at Red Eyed Fly. I was a little too far back to really enjoy that show so I’d like to see them again.

April 22, 2010 – The Antlers @ Lincoln Hall

Mike told me about these guys. I have listened to their album a few times. There are two songs on there that I really like. When it comes to shows at Lincoln Hall, that’s all it takes to get me to go.

April 25, 2010 – White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic @ Metro

Never seen White Rabbits before but I really like their latest CD, It’s Frightening. I have no idea how they’ll be live. I don’t think I’ve heard anything by Here We Go Magic. Michelle likes them so they can’t be that bad, right?
