Good News + Free Music: Jody Seabody & The Whirls Continue On, Put Free Stuff on Bandcamp

A Few Details on the Tragic Death of Jody Seabody’s Matt Johnson

I hate to have to even type this, honestly; what a tragic, crazy thing. As noted here a week or so ago, {Jody Seabody and the Whirls} bassist Matt Johnston died very unexpectedly back on November 9th

More Bad News: Jody Seabody and the Whirls Bassist Passes Away

Damn. Heard through the grapevine earlier in the week (from the {Cavernous} Facebook page, to be precise) that Matt Johnston, the bassist for cool/intriguing indie-rock-but-kinda-not gang Jody Seabody and the Whirls passed away last Wednesday…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Warped Tour (MP3!) + Pride Fest/Prideapalooza + Other Lives + Oax (MP3!) + Gritsy + More

Yeah, I’m attempting to not let the rest of the weekend get the jump on me, this time; let’s see how it goes, eh? Cross yr fingers, y’all… The big item on the list, at least in the physical sense, is this year’s edition of the Vans Warped Tour

A Sweet Hot Hell: Surviving Summerfest 2011, Day One

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Omotai + Ghost Town Electric + Searching for Signal + Featherface + The Manichean + More

Later than I’d hoped to do this, but we’ve got company in town, so my evenings have largely been shot playing cards & just hanging out ’til the wee hours; I figure it’d be crappy to pull out the laptop & frantically blog away while chatting, y’know?…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Orbans + Sara Van Buskirk + Art Institute + Jody Seabody & The Whirls + Winter Wallace + More

Behind tonight, I’m afraid — Midget #2’s been sick, so it’s been a rough few days… There’s still some cool stuff going on tonight (Fri., December 3rd), if you hurry-hurry out of the house asap…
