Show Recommendation

There are many good reasons to go to the Velvet Lounge tonight. Here's five:

1. Look at the fucking poster! I love it. That kangaroo isn't taking any shit. Try and take his picture and you're getting popped in the throat.
2. Imperial China. My favorite DC band. I wish they'd come to Austin. Maybe for SXSW?
3. If I'm not mistaken, the Velvet Lounge serves inexpensive Pabst cans. Sure it'll give you gas and the runs the next day but it tastes good going down. Okay, maybe not.
4. Girl Loves Distortion. I'm listening to their latest album, Earth Beings On Exhibit, and it's pretty good. How have I not heard of this DC band before?

And finally...

5. Report Suspicious Activity. It's a "post-punk supergroup". By law, you're obligated to check out all supergroups. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

You know, I'd be a bit more into Imp China if they would only lose the Primus-type "funk" stuff from their sound. It reminds me of the 1990s (decade not band) and how shitty music was back then.

Speaking of, I caught some of the 1994 move "Airheads" on VH1 Classic on Saturday. Awful movie. I may have to rent it and then post about it.
