Overload.

You'll all be happy to know that I've made it back safely from NYC, and although I am now completely broke thanks to Katz's, the Met, and all those eateries in Little Italy, I'm still wishing I could snap my fingers and move there. You just might hear me utter those words in a few months from now...

Anyways, back to business, eh? While I was on the plane coming home, I listened to AirTran's super cool satellite offering and heard a song by this band called Reel Vinyl that reminded me of a new twist on 80s inspired glam rock. So, you might want to check them out if you're interested at all in that sort of Depeche Mode/the Cure/New Order type thing.

And this weekend is quickly approaching. As far as I'm concerned, it starts tomorrow, because Fridays are 'cruise days.' If you're itching to get out of the house, I personally recommend the following:

**Tomorrow, Thursday, January 18th: I'll be over at Vinyl for the whole 99X Sunday School on the Road thing. Pasadena is playing, and they're a good alt-country rock band for all your horseriding fantasies. It's free before 9:00 for Freeloaders.

**Friday, January 19th: There are a few shows worth mentioning...

--->The Selmanaires and the Cassavetes are playing at Lenny's.

--->The Cogburns are playing at Star Bar. This is the last show with bassist Jenn, so I'm sure it's going to rock.

--->Pistolero is playing at the 11:11 Teahouse. I think I might opt for this because I don't know how much loud rock I can take in 3 days. Gaw, I'm getting old. Or maybe I'm just still in need of a little rest. Orrr, maybe I want to try something new. Check out a new band I haven't seen. That's the REAL reason. I swear. That, and I want to check out this teahouse place. I heart tea.

--->If you don't mind Suck...I mean, Buckhead, then Tim Brantley is playing with my favorite locals, Rantings of Eva.

**Saturday, January 20th: There's only one place that you should be tonight. One. That's it. And that is at the show that caused me more stress and pain than I care to go over again. The Bridges, Bang Bang Bang, and Chainestereo at Vinyl. This line-up is unique because these bands don't play often, unlike some other shows I see going on the same night. Yeah, that was a low blow, but my God, STOP PLAYING EVERY WEEK!!!! Surely someone else feels my pain of oversaturation, yes? Anyways, come to this show. Read up on my thoughts about the bands here.
