What a bunch of little shits.

Saw the Ready Stance band in Columbus Ohio last week (I think they're from Cincinatti). Torchbearers of honest, melodic rock.
Need to get them out to Brooklyn, pronto, to show skinnyjean hipsters how it's done.

I like the china man.

He looks like we could watch Annie Hall together.
