Back in the Game

I went to the doc this morning, gave me something for my cough, but said there's nothing I can do but rest. Against doctor’s orders, I'm here at work, getting stuff done so that I won't have to be here all night once I do come back. Yuck. Anyway...Here's some shit about some bands I haven't talked about in a while.

Aparently, The Killers were on TRL yesterday, and I missed it! I was home and had no idea. Too bad, cause that would have been a trip to see. I dunno if they've actually cracked the countdown yet, which seems to be dominated by some little twerp named Mario and Lindsay Lohan, but god bless um if they have. I, by the way, have no issues with bands selling out. In fact I support it as much as possible.

Via CentralVillage's West Coast correspondent Steve, I hear The Bravery are getting some airplay out in LA on indie 103 with "Honest Mistake". Hot shit. What's the next step for these guys? Go on tour supporting someone like The Killers? I think that seems logical. Will be Curious to see.

Asobi Seksu is now slated as the first opener for The Features and Razorlight @ Bowery next Thursday the 13th. It's their first time playing there. I've never been too excited to see Razorlight before, but after discovering I've listened to one of their tracks more than almost any other song on iTunes, I'm willing to give them another shot. The Features opened for Kings of Leon last time they were in town at Bowery, and I was very impressed by them. This might be a good show to check out after all.

For those who don't watch college football...poor Ashlee, part 2. She got booed loudly by the Orange Bowl crowd, after singing out of sync with her backing vocal for most of her performance of 'la la'. You know, wouldn't it be cool if, for this, they took some artists who fit into that vague genre called "college music?" I bet everyone would rather hear Taking Back Sunday or Yellowcard or maybe just some hip hop rather than that shit. I mean, I really don’t even know what the kids like these days...but I do know that nobody out of High School (aka College Football fans) listen to Teen Pop. Poorly played by the ABC and the BCS, but that's no shocker coming from them...

Finally, for my daily Libertines update (aka me reading every morning), Carl talks about the future of the band and its members here. Also, this is old, but the Newsnight interview with Peter can be seen here. (Thanks to reader Katie for the link)

Rumour has it The Bravery will support Ash on their U.S. tour in the Spring.

Interesting...does Ash draw at all in America? I wouldn't seem to think so, but I could be wrong.
