Crystal Stilts are a local band that prove just because you can play bigger venues, doesn't mean you should stop playing regularly in your hometown. Catch them at Don Pedro's tonight.

The Punch Brothers have the same point of view.

Dave Deporis surfaces once again. Tonight at Mercury Lounge.

Marc Ribot's birthday week continues.

The Damned are here!

The English Beat are here!

Jarvis Cocker's new video for "Angela" below...

What else?

"Crystal Stilts are a local band that prove just because you can play bigger venues, you should stop playing regularly in your hometown."

I agree. They should definitely stop playing here. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

Jarvis,

We need to have a talk. You used to be good. You used to be clever. Witty, even.

So...what in the hell is this garbage? I mean, really now. The whole Elvis Costello meets Queens Of The Stone Age schtick just isn't working.

Please stop, before you embarrass yourself any further.

Sincerely,

~the rest of the world

@Anon5:01 - To bad that girl got to "/meh" on MySpace before someone could set up a parody MySpace page like the "TBA" band one.
