Hip quote…Stan from the film Office Space


Look, we want you to express yourself, ok? If you think the bare minimum is enough, then ok. But some people choose to wear more and we encourage that, ok? You do want to express yourself, don’t you?

– Stan discussing flair with JoAnna at Chotchkie’s

iTunes Free Single of the Week: Jake Bugg – Lightning Bolt

For those that use iTunes (doesn’t everyone?), the Free Single of the Week is Jake Bugg’s ‘Lightning Bolt’. You can download it free here –>itunes.apple.com/us/album/lightning-bolt-single/id620456099 in the U.S.

It amazes me that Jake Bugg is only 19 years old. I have t-shirts older than him!

I first became familiar with Jake Bugg after reading an awesome concert review (complete with excellent pictures) on the blog Every Record Tells A Story. You can read it here–> EveryRecordTellsAStory.com/2013/03/27/jake-bugg-live/ (This blog is full of great stories out of the UK. I highly recommend it.)

The first thing that strikes you when you see Jake Bugg live is that he reminds you of a sulky teenager (because he is one) in his Adidas trainers and Fred Perry shirt – but then he opens his mouth and out comes the most amazing voice. This is a voice that cuts through all the nonsense in the newspapers and leads you to ask “How does someone that young get to be so good?” ~ EveryRecordTellsAStory.com

Local news update: Morrissey cancels tonight’s concert in Richmond

morrisseywehateitOriginal Hipster…Morrissey…has canceled tonight’s performance in Richmond Virginia at the National Theater due to health reasons. (Refunds are at the point of purchase).

Here’s what Vulture.com had to say about it:

Morrissey’s health issues forced him to delay a string of concerts and eventually cancel part of his North American tour, but now it sounds a little more serious. Speaking to the Mexican radio station Reactor 105.7, the 53-year-old Smiths front man said his bleeding ulcer, pneumonia, and a throat condition called Barrett’s esophagus kept him hospitalized for five weeks. Now he’s been advised to play it safe and retire. “I have been cautioned to, but it’s difficult for me because it’s very ingrained in me,” he says. He did announce plans to retire in two years back in 2012

Those looking for other concerts to attend should check out my Local Calendar page for the latest listings. (I also recommend Pollstar.com for concert info.)

BTW… found this funny picture of Morrissey while surfing the Inter-web…best caption EVER.
