Warm & Fuzzy (that's me) will be 'on the decks' at Mary's for Happy Hour this Friday, June 20th from 6:00 to 10:00.

I'm loving the weather right now and will be playing songs full of surf, sun and summer love....or songs that remind me of summer.

I've got some new music and lots of old music that has been on my mind lately.

Expect to hear the new Stereolab single, the Helio Sequence, Galaxie 500, Swervedriver, Fleet Foxes, and my usual arsenal of indie pop/rock and goodies from the 80's and 90's.

free local music tonight at Wordsmiths in Decatur [13 Jun 2008|10:36am]

to keep this from being overly ad-tastic, i'm going to be short and to the point:

Wordsmiths Books, in Decatur, is celebrating our one-year anniversary all weekend. Information on the entire weekend is here.

Tonight kicks everything off...with THREE great local musical acts.

From 7-8 PM: The Lady Vanishes (sunny, 60's-esque cafe pop)

8-9 PM: Eryn McHugh (radio-ready confessional singer-songwriter stuff)

9-10: Lou Martyr and Nerdkween (Lou, formerly of One Hand Loves The Other, bring his angelic electro-pop as a solo artist, joined by Nerdkween on guitar)

unfortunately, Random Rabbit, scheduled for the 10-11 PM slot, are stuck in Asheville in a broken-down van (which i can understand, after dishing out close to 1k on my own vehicle in the past week only to have it still not working). we'll be scheduling a make-up soon...for now, though, a night of FREE, ALL AGES music at the coolest bookstore around.

End of Apache Cafe's Mic Club? [19 Mar 2008|11:15am]

Did anyone go to Apache Cafe's Mic Club on Tuesday? I heard Dres had some sort of dispute with Apache, and is closing the event down (or at least moving it to another venue).

Have any of you heard about this?

at a loss, looking for a band... [06 Mar 2008|08:21am]

ok, so this is embarrassing, and kinda silly, but i'm against a wall.

if you're in a local band, and you're good, kinda smart, interested in rocking a bookstore, and sound like some mixture or amalgamation of (or, at the very least, take from) hedwig/goldfrapp/uk punk-basically, looking for something smart, stompy, glittery and snotty. the "smart" is non-negotiable.

anyway, my deadline's today. if you're at all interested in an opportunity to play for somewhere around a store-capacity crowd (say, 300), shoot me an email:


i really, really need to tool through some local band myspace pages, but apparently my time has slipped away. anyway, this is x-posted to a couple of places, so don't kill me for waking up and realizing i've been slacking.
