April = Awesome

I bailed on seeing The Stills last night. I know, I'm lame. But when you fall asleep on the subway ride home from work and end up going an hour out of your way just to get back to your apartment, you know you need some rest. Plus, a new episode of Lost was on, and if I waited until tonight to watch it, my head just may have exploded. And that's just gross.

Hey but you know what? There are great shows going on tonight. In fact, all month.

Here's a fun fact: A Brief Smile played with El Jezel at our first Underrated showcase over a year ago, as a last minute fill in for The Upwelling. One of these days I'm going to create a whole six degrees of separation on New York bands. It's so incestual.

My friends A Brief Smile kick off their month long residency at Fat Baby tonight. If you have read this blog for a while, you've seen my numerous posts. Now, go out and see them. You've got four chances, and nothing to do on Thursday nights. I don't want to hear any excuses, ok?

    El Jezel is kicking of the latest showcase by Crackers United, alongside Foreign Islands, Rahim, and Other Passengers. We always have a crazy fun time at those shows. Expect tonight to be no different. Check out this post for all the info and mp3's from the bands.

    And starting NEXT Tuesday, The Upwelling will be playing every week left in April at Pianos. It's been far too long since we've seen this band play, and now that they've gotten all huge in the UK, our expectations are at the highest. Lucky for them, we've never been disappointed at one of their shows. We can't wait to hear their new stuff either. If you have yet to hear about this band, get out from under the rock (it's not very comfortable anyways, right?). Because this year they'll get all huge and you'll want to be one of the cool kids who said you knew them when. Plus, every Tuesday all you gotta do is walk upstairs after their show to hang out with the band and me at the fabulous party "Get On Your Dancing Shoes." Upwelling + Underrated Dance Party = Best Night Ever.
