Pick of the Week...Number...Hmmm.

I have no idea where I left off on the numbering. As you'll recall, I didn't do a Pick of the Week last week. I did get a Dick of the Week out, though. I'm still pissed off about it, so there's not a new one.

This week, not much is going on in the world of music, other than Butch Walker tonight at the Loft and whatever other shows I listed yesterday that I don't feel like backtracking for you today. (Just scroll down, it'll all be fine, I promise). I know I've mentioned that show like three times already, but I would feel like I'm doing an injustice if I don't try to convince you to attend. There may not even be tickets...I don't know. You can get the info here, but I suspect you can't buy them online since it's now the day of the show. You'd probably have to get them at the door.

Anyways, back to Pick of The Week. I think I'm going to go with All the Saints this week. The bassist is a friend of mine, and while I didn't care for them at all to begin with, and still have a hard time at shows just because it's so loud, he passed their recorded material on to me, and I'm in love with it. This music has a vintage sound to it that's reminiscent of the seventies, and I can dig it, because, like we've already established...I'm a not-so-closet hippie. There's not a whole lot going on here in the vocal department. It's all about the music. It is, for lack of a better word, highly psychedelic. If you want, they're playing Smith's Olde Bar at 8:00 on Thursday for the 99X Sunday School on the Road series. It's free. You have no excuse not to attend. Unless you're under 21.

And lastly, elsewhere in the world of music...

**Axl Rose is delaying the release of his record. This is almost as shocking as when I found out Doogie Houser was gay.

**Yoko Ono's driver is/was apparently psycho. Once again, she's not to blame here.

**Ruben Studdard, past winner of American Idol who is proving to the world why he won, thinks Alabamans are fat and wants to change that. This from a man named after my most favorite fattening sammich.

**What We All Want has the new Chromeo leak up, and I am in love with Chromeo.

**The Swear is in search of a drummer. If you drum, you can contact them here. They didn't say this, but I imagine you have to know what you're doing and not suck ass.
