One in, one out...

Well, with Lollapalooza now out, another long rumored festival moves in. I spent one third of my palooza refund on tickets to Little Steven's Underground Garage Festival. You get 13 hours of the old and the new of garage rock...from The Stooges and The New York Dolls to The Mooney Suzuki and The Strokes...all for $20...or half the cost of what you'd usually pay to see The Strokes alone. Great fucking deal...and it's on a Saturday which means people will actually go. This will be the sleeper event in America this summer...Good times had by all.

Of course the sleeper event around the world is The Oxegen Festival in Ireland. I'm leaving one week from today to head to London...then from there to Dublin, where the most incredible lineup ever is playing over two days. Can't wait.

This week I've got Dizzee Rascal and The Streets Wednesday night @ Irving, then maybe The Bravery @ Bar 13 Thursday if I can squeeze it in.

Finally...details are scarce as of now...but some night in the near future there will be free Sparks and free Red Stripe from 12-1am at bar 13...A more perfect night for JER there may never be.
