A Form of Paying Attention June ‘08

4395

The Fleet Foxes record comes out on June 3rd and the LP—and it’s a gate-fold LP, mind you—comes with a digital download code, AND includes the Sun Giant EP on a second piece of vinyl! This is currently the only way to get Sun Giant on vinyl so it seems crazy not to buy it. Oh, this record is coming out on CD, too, if you’re into that. Buy it here. Want to know all about Fleet Foxes? Look here for tour info and here for myspace informations.

The new Wolf Parade record comes out June 17th, and it’ll be on CD and LP (w/ download code) as well. Buy it! We’re giving away a poster of the Wolfers’ heads on animal bodies, painted by Spencer’s sister Zoe Krug Sather. You can see it here. Click here for more Wolf Newz.

So, 20th Anniversary festivities continue to roll along quite nicely. We’ve got the big fest weekend coming up in just over a month and we’ve added The Vaselines and Les Thugs to the rock line-up and David Cross to the comedy line-up. Singles Club is not quite ready yet but we (I mean “they”) are working hard on getting it all lined up in a timely fashion—please be on the look out for it in 2012. Kidding!

Have a good June, and see you in July at Marymoor!

Grand Archives Get Shown Up by Legendary Steak House

4463

Today in Amarillo, TX Curtis Hall, drummer for Grand Archives, attempted the Free 72 oz Steak Dinner Challenge at The Big Texan Steak Ranch on I-40. Although Curtis made an admirable showing he only managed to put away 50 ounces—yes, THREE POUNDS!—of steak dinner in the alotted hour. Unfortunately for Curtis this means that his Free 72 oz Steak Dinner is really a $72 horrible fucking stomachache. Nice try—you’ll get ’em next time. Grand Archives will be headed up the West Coast — go see them and make fun of Curtis!

Grunge Summit 2008: Part II

4470

Here is the second installment of the results from Grunge Summit 2008. I thought Tad Doyle (of TAD) and Chad Channing (of Nirvana’s early days) would be a good pair since I’m doing this in twos. Tadchad!

What Tad Doyle Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?*
    I am a bookkeper for Flux, Inc. I occupy space and displace air or water depending on where I am.
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    Yes they do. Sometimes they know who I am.
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    Love it. There is always plenty of fresh new bands to keep a guy like me busy and listening for a lifetime.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. Middian Age Eternal
    2. YOB The Unreal Never Lived
    3. Christ Punchers Psalms For A New Dark Age
    4. Celtic Frost Monotheist
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    I usually direct the conversation to other subjects.

What Chad Channing Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?*
    musician/dad/landscaper 2 days a week
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    yup
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    I think some of the best music being made will never get heard. Big labels buying out the little guys is killing music. Something has to give…just hope I’m around to hear/see it. Not sure what I think anymore.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. Portishead P3
    2. Amon Amarth Odin At Our Side
    3. MIA’s second record
    4. TATU’s second record
    5. Ween (anything)
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    Not really. Breifly if anything. Sometimes.
