i only did it 'cause i felt so lonely
Actually, I did it because it was free and also right by my new place.
On Monday, the Biltmore re-opened after renovations and under new management, celebrating with a free show with the Choir Practice and the Buttless Chaps. I snapped some pics, but they're still stuck on my camera, so you'll have to trust me when I say that I'd never though that I'd describe the Biltmore as looking "classy," but it does.
I'm interviewing Zak, who's handling all the booking for the venue, for Tooth and Dagger tomorrow night, but before speaking a word to him (at least in person), I can tell you that you should be excited about hearing that, because he also does the booking for Broken City in Calgary and he was one of the minds behind Sled Island (that featured the Boredoms last year).
SWAK finally announced some shows for the New Year...
Baby Dee is at the Media Club on February 10th.
Pinback is at Richard's on February 15th.
And they're bringing the Mountain Goats back to Richard's on February 22nd.
and Petroleum By-Products and Suspiria are at the Balmoral on December 22nd.
Wintersleep is at the Commodore on February 16th.
I wrote something on Gob for Chart that I thought they canned, since it was due months ago, but apparently it's in the new issue. No, seriously.
I wrote about AIDS Wolf for Chalked Up... check Gordon's sweet photos. If you have photos or video from their stop here (or anywhere else), the band wants 'em: aidswolf [AT] aidswolf.net. Don't forget to wish Chloe a speedy recovery from her broken foot while you're at it.
And last, but most certainly not least, it's my sister's birthday today. Happy birthday, kid... see you in a week.

It's the only song with "sister" in the title that I could think of, save for an Air track from the Virgin Suicides soundtrack (too morbid) or "Oh, Sister" by Dylan (which is either about jesus, wanting to get with a lady and calling her "sister" in that hippy way, or both - regardless, also not good).
QOTSA - Little Sister and also Damien Rice - Baby Sister from his lime album. I think Sufjan has a sister song from his bible album. But that could be about Mary Magdalene or something.
oh no, wait, Posies - Solar Sister is probably the best one.
how about "sister christian" by night ranger? WHAT"S YOUR PRICE FOR FLIGHT?!
or... Charlotte Diamond's "Why did I have to have a sister?". yeah, that's a nice song for a birthday.
Nico - Little Sister from Chelsea Girl
