There was this quiet desert town once. It had a Main Street. It was on a major trade route to the west. It was warm and it was peaceful. And above all, it was quiet. This is how it’s gonna look today and tomorrow: I’ll see you on Monday.
That surge in Internet use across Southern California today may have something to do with the release (finally) of the Coachella Schedule. As expected, we’re going to have to make some tough choices (Digable Planets or Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Bloc Party or Sleater Kinney or Paul Oakenfold? Kanye West or My Morning Jacket?) On an […]
At the risk of taxing your bandwidth, I’m gonna post another thousand words today. I still feel like one of the backpackers in Hostel after spending some time in that abandoned hospital, but I’m at work and drinking coffee, so I’m suffering from the illusion that I’m on the mend. Here’s a photo I snapped […]
What’s happening on the Mezzanine? The Amoeba Music Mezzanine is getting a makeover. So print this up and study it. Things are changing. They’ll be at it till four this morning. I’m safely home. Ready for bed. Goodnight.
In preparation for a weekend in the sun at Coachella I’ve picked up a couple shifts this week. That’s seven nine-hour shifts in a row. Add that to the usual three shifts at the photo lab and that leaves me with very little time to write. Then today I wake up with a nasty sore […]

What? Already?? Yeah, so I’m a little behind. But Michael Keefe’s latest slice of crackling, critical ruminations through the latest in the music scene is now available for your pleasure. This week he takes a good look at the new Belle & Sebastian album, so check it out. And expect to see the reviews of […]
Last year my friend Llyr says she has two tickets for Saturday at Coachella and do I want to go? I say sure. I’ll check it out. I hadn’t been and I figured, what the heck. It’s a new experience. Even up to the last minute I wasn’t all that excited. Chaos. Heat. Dust. Desert. […]
I’ve blogged about these guys before. They’ve got a new album out. It’s a positively dreamy set of songs that’s gonna set the tone for my Springtime, I think. Check ’em out. The Concretes – As Four (224 kps mp3) album review at allmusic.com NOTE: To protect my bandwidth, I’ll yank this tune from my […]
