Battles + Thee Armada + More New Reviews [6/23/2007 01:11:00 AM]:
I need sleep. Gah. Day-job deadlines have eaten me alive these past couple of weeks, as has my three-year-old refusing to sleep through the night, and on top of that, I'm currently blogging/putting crap online on a work laptop, sitting on the couch at my folks' house in San Antonio, surreptitiously using a neighbor's wireless network to get online. Ah, the joys of the Internet life...
At any rate, I'm a bit bummed that I'm not in H-town this weekend, 'cause it's looking like a very cool weekend, in part because much-heralded heavy post-rock "supergroup" (ex-Don Cab, ex-Helmet/-Tomahawk) Battles are kicking it tomorrow/tonight (6/23) up at Numbers with Ponytails and dear SCR pals (and damn good musicians) Sharks and Sailors. We've got a review up for the show, naturally, so give it a read.
This week's update also includes a review of local boys Thee Armada's debut disc, which I/we have really been enjoying. It's been kind of nice timing, actually, 'cause right after these guys released the album, The New You, they got tapped to play the Houston stop of the Warped Tour, due up at Reliant Park on 7/15. If their live show's anything like the way they sound on CD, they're gonna burn the stage down. Here's what's new this week...
Reviews: Battles; Ronnie Day; Thee Armada; Blank Pages; Bill Callahan; Jascha Ephraim; & Secret Annexe.
Enjoy the weekend; I'm off to bed. Sleep good...
