Goodbye Real World, Hello College

Summer '07 RIP. It was a good one for sure. I am now in Oberlin, Ohio where I think I will be spending a good part of the next 5 years of my life. I keep getting short moments of "Oh shit! I'm in college! what?!" and then other times its like, "WHOO COLLEGE!! YEAH!" It's all part of it sinking in I guess.

I have all these random clips from the summer that I was too lazy to get around to posting. Until now that is. enjoy:

Cave Newts

So I'm in a band called Cave Newts, and we are currently finishing up a split with Chow Bros and we played the Silent Barn on Tuesday and if you like keeping it real than you should check us out, because that's all we really do is -- Keep it Real.

Some pics from our show on tuesday [thanks Lex!]:

We also played with Capillary Action. John Pfeffer is a powerhouse. They are on a huge tour across the USA so you should check em out.

Big A little a @ Don Pedros

The Rats of NIMH put on a stellar show at Don Pedros on Monday. Got some pics:

Lullatone brought on the child-like vibes. This Japanese couple makes music that sounds as if Nobukazu Takemura met up with Múm to make a soundtrack for playfully wrestling a koala bear or blowing bubbles to in the summer, or something equally as cute. I think that their style has more to do with weird japanese sensibilities than with obnoxious trying to be over the top cutsiness. You be the judge:

Lullatone - Bedroom Bossa Band
Lullatone - Wake Up Wake Up
Lullatone - Music Box Samba
Lullatone - Bushman's Samba

Yea Big + Kid Static

Also, I failed to get many pictures from the showpaper benefit on saturday (which went off amazingly; thanks to everyone who came out and supported showpaper!), but check out Edan's flickr page for some prime snaps. I especially like the ones from Dirty Projectors intimate, sort of acoustic headline set. MORE...
