my favorite album of the year (so far) goes to . . .

SILVERCHAIR 'Young Modern'
(US release date is JULY 24th)
CLICK HERE for my last post on Silverchair. (includes video for "Straight Lines")
I remember seeing the band in concert back in '95 or '96 in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm sure I still have the ticket stub & FROGSTOMP T-shirt I bought from the show. (I'm a dork. I'm an avid collector. I keep all my concert ticket stubs, concert posters (especially Bill Graham Presents / Filmore posters), everything Andy Warhol, plus a few other things . . .)

Here's the 2nd video from the new album 'YOUNG MODERN'. I like how they incorporated the album artwork into this video. (interesting choice of single . . . I'm surprised they didn't go with 'Young Modern Station' or 'Low')

CASTLEDOOR begins SLL residency tonight!


Castledoor just get better and better each time I see them. Finally other peole are taking notice too! (they get played on Indie 1031, Kcrw, Blogs etc . . .) They have come along way since they opened HELL YA! Night w/ Los Abandoned last year. I hope to have them back to HEADLINE HELL YA night soon - but they keep getting booked for big shows, looks like I will have to wait. :)

Tonight they start a Thursday night residency @ the SILVERLAKE LOUNGE. They go on at Midnight. (i know it's late, but I promise you - it's WORTH IT!)

Expect big things. I love this band so much. Just wait till you hear their new songs! (like the title track to the upcoming ep - "shout to the mountains" sooooooooooo amaaaaazzzziiinnnnnngggg)
Till then, here's my other fav -


Also playing tonight is INGRID MICHAELSON @ the HOTEL CAFE - She goes on at 9pm. I will be at BOTH shows tonight so make sure to say hi if you see me up front singing all the words. :)

the saddest thing ever . . . RIP John Pike (drummer RA RA RIOT)

I got an email yesterday from Josh, the manager of one of my favorite NYC bands RA RA RIOT. He was asking everyone if they had seen JOHN PIKE, the drummer of Ra Ra Riot. I was sad to hear he was missing, but thought for sure he would turn up. They played a show on friday night in Providence, Rhode Island, then went to a party in Fairhaven, MA where he went missing.

I just checked my blackberry and saw a follow up email about John:
"I'm so sorry to say this but the police have just found John Pike's body. Thank you so much for all your help and support.

We all loved him very much."

What!?!? How could this happen? I'm so sad, I can't belive it. I'm so glad that I got to meet him, see his band, love his band. Ra Ra Riot played my HELL YA! show @ SXSW this year, they were so amazing, I got to introduce John to TOM from Myspace, who became a fan after seeing them play.

My thoughts are with John's family, friends and of course Ra Ra Riot.

Here's a demo from the band - one of my favorites.
