We picked a rough night to host a comedy show a Pianos. Tonight is also a benefit at Knitting Factory and the weekly Gelmania at Rififi. Gelmania host Brett Gelman is moving to LA, so this will also be his last Gelmania.

When Nik Freitas opened for Rilo Kiley I pointed out that he is on Team Love and stuff. Tonight he's opening for Johnathan Rice and Maria Taylor. Yesterday I noticed he's also in Conor Oberst's new band.

What else?

Just a warning -- I had nothing to do Saturday night, so I bought a ticket to the Steely Dan show (don't ask...). And even after multiple vodka tonics and a couple Vicodin the show was borrrrrring. The audience reminded me of a pre-Tiger Woods golf crowd and the band sounded like a CD, only less spontaneous.

"I do so reckon it's Brett Gelman, not Mike."

Thank you. My brain is funny sometimes.

"what about laura marling? she's rad! playing at mercury lounge early"

Thank you. I thought I had that in there.

"The Pack AD is at Piano's."

You're confusing tonight with July 16th.

and one last minute addition from Bill. Members of Dirty on Purpose, Au Revoir Simone and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah:

Didn't the Futureheads do a great cover of Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love"?

That makes me a fan.
