Bill O'Reilly - DANCE REMIX

Get your swerve on to Bill O'Reilly going ape shit, if you haven't seen the clips of Bill freakin' then you need. Someone was kind enough to remix his latest tirade.

Turn it up.

Yo Folks!

I've been out of touch for a bit it seems and I'M SORRY. I'm currently getting ready for some summer festivals and will be posting the ones I plan to attend as well as my recommendations.

If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for a good pair of shades. I needed a new pair for summer so I grabbed these Oakley Frogskins...

I'll also be coming at ya with new music to checkout, recent shows I've been to, and any other random stuff I think warrants a post. Check back often!

ACL Day 3 Schedule

I'm looking forward to the Foo Fighters, Raconteurs, Against Me!, and Band of Horses. But most of all, Gillian Welch. Do all that is in your power to see her!

ACL Day 2 Schedule

If you get to the park early enough on Saturday do yourself a favor and go see Mugison. The range of this Icelandic musician is quite impressive... going from an acoustic lullaby on one track to a dirty blues riff ala The Black Keys to the fervor of Mastodon. It's quite remarkable, having never seen him live - I can't wait. I'm also looking forward to Conor Oberst's new band, Beck, and Plant/Krauss. Concerns?

ACL Day 1 Schedule

So on first peruse, I like that the main stages are on either side of the schedule signifying their distance and location at opposites ends of the park. In terms of acts I'm excited about, needn't go further than David Byrne into Manu Chao. You couldn't script a progression of music revolutionaries any better... Thoughts?
