It’s been quiet around here lately, as I poured all my energy into frantically packing to move into a new apartment. Â I’m all settled in, so hopefully things will be back to normal. You can catch me spinning some tunes on CHIRP this Friday night from 8-10 pm Central. Â It’ll be great. Monday, November 14 […]

Who knew that death could be so cheerful? Here’s my favorite track off of Jeremy Messersmith’s The Reluctant Graveyard. The song is catchy and the animation in the video is — pardon the pun — to die for.

Tomorrow Never Knows 2011 kicks off this week, with shows at Schubas, Lincoln Hall, and Metro. Some year, I’ll be able to do something wacky like go to a show every night. This is not that year. I’ll be at the Marketa Irglova show for my one TNK 2011 stop this year. Should be good.

After three days of Lollapalooza, I kind of don’t want to think about music right now. Fortunately for those of us who are sort of burnt out at the moment, there’s not a lot going on. I’ll be at the Rufus Wainwright show on Friday. I’m not in love with his new album, but as a Rufus (and Martha) fangirl, I’ll go to the concert all the same. Maybe I will love the new songs more, seeing them live.
