I love the new Wye Oak album. "Civilian" is one of this year's best releases.

If you dress like you are from the midwest, you should live and play your music in the midwest.

i guess this news will cause many denizens of Brooklyn to return to their midwest roots

^ HAAA!!! YES!!! Go down south! you dress and act and play music inspired by life in the south, GO THERE! Please leave motherfuckers. Brooklyn is destroying the idea of NEW YORK CITY. NYC. New yorkers have been too nice to these midwest aids patients. Go home. Go home and play your country music.

Anyone know how to go to this show? Where the hell is the baseline stage.

I want to go to Wye Oak. Is this an actual show or do you have to be some millionaire dipshit to get in?
