Got it? Good. Also:

Two Gallants, Cold War Kids, and Cartright will be playing at Rubber Gloves tonight. We've seen Cartright before and the guy puts on a great live show. And although Cold War Kids are kind of dorky, we can't help but like their catchy songs... thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear for that one. And yes, we really do HATE everything on Saddle Creek other than the Faint, including Two Gallants. They sound like emo for people that are into Rev. Horton Heat or something. Du-umb.

I don't think they sound that bad. I think I may go to this. THEN I can judge. I've been wanting to see Cartwright for a while now. Am also slightly curious about the other band.

there is this really fucking awesome spanish electronic group coming to rgrs on thursday, EVERYONE SHOULD GO TO THIS:

"In 1978, El Aviador Dro landed its spacecraft in a vinyard outside of Madrid, Spain. Over the next twenty-five-plus years Aviador Dro churned out some of the most inovative electronic rock the world has ever heard, touching on everything from Electro to Punk to Industrial to New Wave to Rave and even a bit of Hip Hop for good measure. Their albums are bona fide classics of the genre, on par with those of DEVO, KRAFTWERK, SUICIDE, and FRONT 242. Of course, because Aviador Dro sang exclusively in Spanish, few humans outside Spain and Latin America took notice.

Fortunately for all of us in the English-speaking world, the American independent electropunk label Omega Point Records is soon to release a career retrospective compilation for the US and Canadian masses (with some unreleased tracks for the already converted). The release will be supported by Aviador Dro's first major tour of the USA sometime in 2006.

Un saludo electrico!"

anyone that enjoys electronic music at all should go to this, they really deserve the support.

ps. a friend gave me a copy of one of their early albums about a year ago, and it instantly became one of my favorites ever... I still listen to it on a regular basis, these guys have done stuff that most modern electronic acts could only dream of.

If you're not going to the Darkside to see us and Femme Fatality on Thursday, pleease go see El Aviador Dro.

I'm really afraid that that show is going to be completely overlooked, like all the fuckin' rad acts that used to get booked at Mable Peabody's, that nobody ever saw.

We're playing with El Aviador Dro on Friday in Austin at the Flamingo Cantina.

Response to jamo:

I dunno. You definitely have more selective tastes than me, and I don't like everything. That's why I'm flattered you like our band! Now send a drummer our way please
