Wuss Rock or Overhyped Pitchfork Bands?

Here are your choices for this week:

Tuesday at the Black Cat Backstage - Cedars and Dirty On Purpose
Wednesday at the Warehouse Next Door - Get Him Eat Him, Curtains, and Beirut

I've only listened to a few songs by Cedars and Dirty On Purpose but I liked what I heard. It's wuss rock, but the good kind (James knows what I mean). Might be a good show to wear my shirt with the unicorns fucking in front of a rainbow.

Get Him Eat Him have a ton of different sounds. I listened to one album and they were all over the place. Some stuff worked, some didn't. Kind of like hooking up with someone for the first time, when drunk and high on Angel Dust. Overall, not bad. Curtains features a guy from one of my favorite bands, Deerhoof. Too bad this band isn't good. Beirut got rave reviews from Pitchfork. Sometimes I wonder if they just post sick reviews to see how many people latch onto a crappy band. Maybe I'm wrong and Beirut is pure genuis, but I doubt it.

Lock in your votes now...

I am going to vote for the Tuesday night show. It is not because of Spry's shining endorsement, but I have my dorky NFL Fantasy Draft on Wednesday night. Therefore my only option is the wuss rock.
