Holy shit, just scrolling down that list from NPR makes me realize how many albums that I haven't had a chance to even hear yet. Do people throw December onto the following year with these lists or is it a forgotten month?
He's a bad contract waiting to happen, so he's a perfect fit for the Mariners.
Haha, for real. I was looking at the people they are talking about linked to the M's and pulling my hair out today. Some of the names included Mike Morse, Shin Soo Choo and Asdrubal Cabrera. Those dudes were all pretty much given away by us within the past 5 years.
Not sure how much love they get on this forum, but Starfucker's got a new one called Miracle Mile out 2/19, and the first single "While I'm Alive" is out on ichunes now.
Also, they're hitting the Nepchune 2/26 with Blackbird Blackbird.
I have some love for Starfucker. They just played a sold out show up in Bellingham and my friends that went said it was a rad time. Everyone dancing and a good light show. I am guessing that Nepchune show will be really good.
Well I had to leave because my friend was stuck in Portland with no ride home. But before we left, we discovered how easy it is to get into the Roseland without buying a ticket. We just flashed our stamps and went right up stairs. We walked into one of the douchiest shows possible. Some rapper named Andre Nickatina. The crowd mostly consisted of 15 year old boys and girls. Throughout the show, Andre kept shouting "PUT YO HANDS UP IF YOU LIKE DRUGS AND ALCHOHOOOOOOL." The kids seemed to love that, because the room went nuts.
So yeah, it was pretty terrible. I was pretty entertained though.
