"Almost-hump day"

That's what they called it this morning on Cold Pizza (still watch it, yes). How awful is that a way to describe a day? The week is almost half done? Jeez. Anyway. I just prefer plain old Tuesday.

Ended up at a PACKED Rothko last night to see Maximo Park. Really can't stand that place when it's crowded. I mean, I can genuinely enjoy myself there when it's like half full, but on nights like this, added with the upside down and backwards smoking policy, it can get extremely unpleasant inside. And as for the band...See, it's not that I didn't like them. I think they are OK. They have one great catchy pop song and a handful of others that sound like The Futureheads without the complicated vocal overlays. Or the Kaiser Chiefs without the razor-sharp hooks. It was a little too transparent as to what they were going for, and while that alone shouldn't sink a band, it wasn't quite good enough for me to see past it. An A+ single, but a C+ body of work.

Other news...

As many may have already noted, The Shins are playing at Webster Hall on 4/23 and 4/24. Tickets are likely to go on sale tomorrow sometime around Noon. Believe it or not, this should be seen as a smallish show for them, considering the other venues they are playing in different cities.

Cocteau Twins are no longer on the bill for Coachella, claiming personal reasons as to why they will not reunite. I won't miss them, but am more curious about who's gonna fill those big 2nd tier headliner shoes? Is someone gonna be added? Will someone get boosted up? Developing...

Finally, be sure to go get tickets to the Go Team at the Canal Room next Wednesday. Only 5 Bucks!
