Bambi Kino is a Beatles cover band featuring Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices, etc), Erik Paparazzi (who has played with Cat Power and others), Ira Elliot of Nada Surf, and Mark Rozzo of Maplewood. They recently played four consecutive shows in Hamburg, Germany beginning on August 17, performing the exact sets The Beatles performed in Hamburg exactly 50 years ago. Tonight they play Bowery Electric in NYC.

Arts & Crafts-signed Mexican band Chikita Violenta are here.

Oh my god, I almost fell asleep during that Drums video.

10:11 & 10:50 - A black child is not a "niglet" either you idiots.

The Drums should really feel embarrassed.

The Tropical Storm warning has been moved up to Thursday night for NYC. What are the chances of the BTS on a boat being canceled?

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 1:20 PM

12:45 - Way to miss my point entirely...which is that people who use such racial slurs are idiots.
