Bush/Blair Gay Bar

I just got this email link from Kate Chapman over at Plasma Entertainment. It's definitely one of the funniest emails I've received since the Idle Hands sent out their "Apology." Check it out at Damn, just when I thought I could get that Electric 6 song out of my head.

Har Mar Superstar has hardly been in England a week and he's already landed himself in hot water with the British authorities for his supposed "obscene" and "disgusting" posters. Read the developing story here.

So, 12 Rods have an NYC show lined up. If you're in the neighborhood they'll be playing at Piano's at 8 p.m. on June 16th. I have a hunch they'll take the city by storm.

Tonight, Raven has his CD Release Party at Lee's Liquor Lounge. I plan to make that show where locals Bottlehouse will be opening. (Read my review of The Bottlehouse' last show here. )

Tomorrow night (Friday) is musically nuts. Many people will be trying to make two shows, both Wilco at the Sculpture Garden, then Bellwether and friends will rock the Entry.

Here's what Dave Campbell had to say:

"Friday, June 13th promises to be one of this summer's finest evenings of shows. First, the heavily anticipated return of Wilco (with local shapeshifters Fog and super-jazzers The Bad Plus) will take place outside of the Walker Art Center. The upside of this event has always been the dazzling line-up, all the pretty people, and the traditionally great weather. The downside is the notorious line for beer and the event's imminent conclusion at 10:00. However, this year, 10:00 will bring only an intermission; a brief break in the action during which concert goers can travel the short distance to the 7th Street Entry. Upon arrival, they will find a discounted ticket price, access to all of the booze that they can afford, and three of Minneapolis' finest ready to rock onward. Opening up is Mike Gunther, sans his restless souls. Following Mike, indie rock super group First Prize Killers will blast through all of the hits from their recent release The Powdery Parade. Country rockers Bellwether will finish the job. Most recently, Bellwether has been in the studio where they are finishing the recording of two albums simultaneously, some of the material from which they will undoubtedly preview. Not to be missed!
