If you're wondering why Cymbals Eat Guitars didn't open for the Walkmen, and why they aren't playing Public Assembly tonight:

Greetings,

Our dear friend and bandmate Dan Baer has recently been admitted to the hospital with a potentially life threatening condition. As a result we've decided to cancel the shows we have scheduled through Sunday April 19th, in order to be by Dan's side. We will keep you posted as we know more. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Regards,

Cymbals Eat Guitars

I would love to see Torche, but they are only playing a 40 minute opening slot and I don't like Dredg.

I saw Rosebuds at 92Y today - great performance - they really engaged the crowd.

The Veronicas (with their band) and some guy (with his band) whose name I didn't recognize performed at the Miss USA 2009 pageant. The blonde Veronica wore a wifebeater with "I HATE YOUR BAND" written on it. Miss North Carolina won. (I didn't watch the whole thing; that's what I gathered while channel surfing.)

And on "Family Guy," there was a legalize-pot musical number.

I am concerned about the environment. I love to wear black. I think government is best when it stays out of people's lives and business as much as possible. I love punk rock. I believe in a strong national defense. I have a tattoo. I believe government should always be efficient and accountable. I have lots of gay friends. And yes, I am a Republican.

Try less than 30. Got there at 8 and they started a few minutes after. They were done just before 8:30pm
