One more detail: In addition to admission, showgoers will be charged a one-time $1 fee and issued a club card, which will be required to enter all future Local 46 events. Kill Switch... Klick founder D. A. Sebasstian dropped a line to hype his new CD, Who Cares--A Tribute to the Who (iREGULAR Records). In honor of the disc, there will be a celebration on Friday, January 19 at the University Bookstore featuring performances by Henry Boy, Jeremy Sever, the Penningtones, and Blue Collar Love.
Anyone catch that gushy interview with ex-Pavement frontman Steve Malkmus in the new issue of Elle magazine? There's one journalist who'll be turning an afternoon with the hottie smart rocker into a lifetime of masturbatory fantasies. (Hey, share the wealth! I still need to get the image of Malkmus wearing a stupid visor while getting denied backstage access to Modest Mouse last summer out of my head.) I wonder if Malkmus told his lovestruck Elle interviewer that his new band, the Jicks, will be playing a hush-hush show in Portland on Tuesday, Jan 23 at the Medicine Hat Gallery? Rumor has it that, among other indie-luminaries, ex-Minders lady Joanna Bolme is in the band. It seems that some people are just finding out (after five years) that Malkmus is an on-again, off-again resident of the Northwest, and it also seems that some people who also live in the Northwest think this show deserves, out of respect for insiders, no advance press. Whoops! (Perhaps I should also quash the rumor that Kristin Hersh and her family are moving to Seattle?)
Last but certainly not least, Al's is located in WALLINGFORD, not Ye Old-ee Town-ee as was misreported in It's My Party's New Year's Eve Bad Behavior Blowout. And the tavern is not owned by the Lovely Libby, but is in fact owned by the folks who own the fine Ye Old-ee Town-ee establishments the Tractor Tavern, Hattie's Hat, and the Sunset Tavern.
