I am the Ayatollah of Rock and Roll-ah

April 16, 2008

If Brendan from Cork who I had the pleasure of meeting in the Gaiety on Saturday ever reads this, that was the best line ever and I commend you. Even if you did start talking about how your mother told you to say it because it would get you laid. Haha. On to last night, […]

Gemma Hayes Gig Alert

March 4, 2008

It looks like Gemma is playing The Academy Tripod (thanks for the detective work tenaciousT!) on April 29th. Jesus I love life lately. I know this only through her drummer‘s myspace so don’t shoot me if it’s not true. Hope this means the new album is on the way.

Uh Huh Uh Huh

March 3, 2008

Just back from the second most gay event of the week, the annoyingly named Uh Huh Her in The Village. (Did they have to pay PJH to call themselves that? I’m calling them UHH from now on) Great fun, but I think a lot of people were just there to stare at (the admittedly lovely) […]

Tegan And Sara Day

I feel like I’m on acid. Excitement city. Tonight, the Button Factory. swoon

Song For A Sunday

February 4, 2008

You Will Love Jenny Owen Youngs

January 16, 2008

Previously, we talked about the heartbreakingly brilliant Jenny Owen Youngs and the non Tegan and Sara song of the year, “Fuck Was I“. Don’t watch the following cultural commentary by the lovely Ms. Youngs (Owen Youngs?) and the equally dreamy Bess Rogers and some dude who I presume is a friend of theirs.  Do not […]

Ms. Indie Rock

December 21, 2007

Stereogum have a list up of picks for Ms. Indie Rock 2007 (and Mr. Indie Rock, further down). Nice to see Tegan Quin and Natasha Khan in the top ten. Don’t really know if I’d count M.I.A. as indie per say, but good to see her in there too anyway. Who am I kidding, this […]
