A bit of administrative-type news first -- I'm heading out shortly for a much-needed vacation to the wife's sister's place in London (well, Ealing, actually, but it's technically London, although that's a bit like saying Surfside is technically Houston), so things're likely to be a bit quiet on the blogging/reviewing/etc. front for next week-and-a-half or so.
Don't fret, though; I'm not taking this opportunity to meander off into the sunset a la the Skyline site. SCR will be back to normal as soon as I get home & get things unpacked. In the meantime, though, I wanted to mention a few cool upcoming things...
Most crucially, on Tues., February 24th, Kirke of Teenage Kicks has set up a show featuring sing-along folk-punkers Ghost Mice and local quirky/sweet folksters Sew What over at Amy's Ice Cream (3816 Farnham). I'm seriously, seriously happy to see shows happening at Amy's once again -- I've got fond memories of Matty & Mossy and Junior Varsity playing there, among others. Show's at 8PM, and there's no cover, but Kirke suggests donating a bit to the bands for gas money & whatnot.
There's still plenty going on while I'm out, btw, so here's an abbreviated list for those looking for things to do:
