Jee-sus 'effin Kee-rist, it's been a hell of a couple of weeks. Yours truly has been hammered by multiple deadlines in advance of the coming days off (all next week! woo!), and as a result I'm just now managing to climb out from under my work-imposed rock to discover, holy crap, there's been a lot going on. Rather than post individually about each & everything thing, though (the prospect of which makes me break out in a cold sweat), I'm gonna try to hit as many as I can in one big catch-all post before I attempt to make it out to the 2nd annual Suspects reunion show tonight. Here goes...
Anyway, this one's called Hootenanny, and it's gonna feature a ton of good local folks playing as the bands they feel influenced (at least somewhat) by. Blades will be playing as the Foo Fighters, John Sears as Sam Cooke (wha?), Indian Jewelry as Depeche Mode (ooh, I wanna see that...), Laws as Creedence, The Jonx as Nomeansno (although I'm bummed that they won't be playing "The Tower"; I tried to talk Danny into it, but no luck), The Dimes as the Pixies; The Mathletes as the Talking Heads;
UPDATE: Whoops...sorry, I confused my mega-shows, apparently -- Grant Olney and the Brokedown Gospel, who I've been told include ex-Panic in Detroit people, are playing tomorrow night at the We Are The Hollow Men art/music deal. Panic in Detroit themselves, at least according to the Hootenanny flyer, will indeed be playing, I guess in their original incarnation & not as somebody's backing band.
(I'm somewhat embarrassed, by the way, to admit that when Sara sent out her email, I emailed back and said, "sure, I'll do it!"...only to absolutely zero. Sadly, I've come to the realization that I can barely handle this Website/blog, much less a whole other daily-written thing. Maybe one of these days...)
Also, in more recent Thee Armada news, the band will be filming a video for "Rock, Shock & Load" tomorrow, Saturday, December 22nd -- it'll be at Irma's, at the corner of Commerce & Chenevert, over by Minute Maid Park, at about 3PM. If you want to be in the video, show the heck on up (under-18s, get your parents to sign the consent form on the band's Myspace) and rock out.
Argh. I feel like there's more, but that's all I can do for now...
