The Hippie-fied Edition.

A collection of rumors, shows, things I love, and news.

Rumors:

**A guy I caught in Charlotte on accident is in town recording. His name is Zach Deputy, and this is what I thought about him. Read the second paragraph.

**I heard that since there is someone new booking the 10 High, it’s now all “heavy” music. Which means I’ll probably never step foot in there again.

Shows This Weekend:

**Friday, January 26Big City Sunrise is coming down from them mountains up north to play Smith’s Olde Bar with the Beggars’ Guild. If you want to see who’s headlining, be my guest, but I’m not going to mention it because I think the guy blows. Hard. Bee-lows. If you want a hint, however, click here and read the 5th paragraph.

**Saturday, January 27The Features are playing the EARL. The Features are awesome. At least, I think the music is the poo.

Things I’ve Been Attached to Recently:

**Damien Rice’s latest release, 9 Crimes. Anyone who ever got into O will be a little skeptical of the newest attempt, much like I was, but just give it time. This one is angrier. Much angrier. Some of the lyrics sting from just listening to them, so I’m sure glad I’m not on the other end of them.

**There’s this band called Dearestazazel that a friend of mine has been recording/mixing/mastering, and he let me listen to what the product was, and I was pretty much blown away. You might not get it, but I’m telling you, I put my stamp of approval on it. You can listen to it here. It’s called “Lovely Lovely.” I’m reminded of the Offspring.

**I’m really digging on Orbit Bubblemint gum. That has nothing to do with music, but it’s so good, it deserves a shout.

**I’ve recently revisited Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s. Again. So it’s been stuck in my CD player. And this weekend, I converted yet another person to love them. So you should also love them if you don’t already.

News:

**Tentonic has some new tunes from their upcoming EP streaming on MySpace.

**The Tomatoes are streaming a new song called “Chicago” that you can listen to. They say it’s about Juliana Hatfield.

**Dead Journalist has posted their first interview of the year. They do a lot of them during the year. I guess 2007 has officially started.

**Wasted Chicken has some info on Coachella. Where I would love to be in April because Willie Nelson is going to be there. Well, there are some other cool acts, too. If anyone feels like giving away a charitable trip to yours truly, lemme know so I can ask off work. Kthanks.
