This is the infamous gig were WB gets the plug pulled on him. Exactly why is still kinda hazy. Drinking on stage, cussing and throwing furniture? I can verify the drinking/swearing part. I did see him gingerly upturn a chair. My view is that they had free beer there and bad words are in his music. I am not taking sides at all because I dig the people who run the event, it just seems weird that’s all. I am sure there was another reason, I dunno. Of all people, he seemed the most shocked to be getting the yank. He was genuinely happy to be playing there. I was actually enjoying his set. Super nice guy as well. Oh well. Some video love here. More photos here.

 So I am shooting down at the Arts Fest tonight and run into Sarah and her adorable son Wyatt. Driving home I think to myself how much I dig her and her old man’s band. Hey, I never posted the photos I took from the last time I saw them. More Wreckids love here.

I was slightly familiar with this band beforehand but I have to say that these guys were really enjoyable. I actually dug them more than their more popular label mates Broken Social Scene. I hope these guys make it through town again sometimes soon.

Lohio is wrapping up their very first ever cross-Midwest-extravaganza-tour tonight (Sunday 10/3) with yet another CD release show at Brillobox. Their tourmates and brethren in all things music Donora are also playing and I am confident that after a few weeks on the road together, this will be one tight as hell show. The release is a new EP entitled Family Tree and I had the pleasure of hearing some of it live at the last Liquid Sundays. I have to say I get worried when a band loses and replaces multiple members over time but with the anchor Greg has with Liz, I just love the direction that the band is going in.
