If he wants it, he'll need to come out to the Cave tonight. Which will cost him 5 bucks. Burn? I dunno. Unreadable text(I'm guessing), says that Erie Choir is tonight at the Cave, The Nein is Friday at Bull City Headquarters and Captain Saturn is Saturday. Tell the not safe for work bird to take the weekend off! Homegrown! It won't let me post videos for some reason, but this is what I tried to put up here.

Rikk's post below made me think of Baby Vaughan (whose life, as we know, is on fire). And when you think of something, what is the next step you take?

My Babysitter Bites Again

The third scary, funny novel in Hodgman's beloved My Babysitter series. Vampire Vincent is back, along with a new cast of neck-nibblers sure to delight young readers. When Vincent returns, Meg and Kelly have to find a way to keep Vincent's creepy hands away from plumb baby Vaughn.

From The Critics
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-- In this sequel to My Babysitter Is a Vampire (Pocket Bks., 1991), Hodgman continues the ghoulish but humorous story of narrator Meg; her younger brother, Trevor; her friend Pittsy; and Pittsy's former boyfriend, Vincent the vampire. As their summer vacation in Maine is ending, the girls are hired as babysitters for one-year-old baby Vaughan, who lives in a creepy looking house that is guarded by a menacing stone statue. As Trevor becomes frightened by strange sensations of people following him, breathing on him, and watching him, Meg starts to notice that Vaughan is taking on unusual characteristics much like those of a vampire. Weird and eerie things continue to envelope this foursome, until Meg suddenly realizes that somehow Vincent has returned from the dead and is in the process of turning Vaughan into a vampire. The ominous ending leaves readers in anticipation of a most probable third book. Hodgman has packed every imaginable piece of vampire lore into this novel. It is not high-quality literature, but is adequately spooky and at times suspenseful. Although the events are predictable, the premise unbelievable, and the characters not fully developed, this is lightweight fare for young fans of the genre. --April L.

Rollin' with the Crue

Farewell performance of the Hack E Sac Crue; Friday night, late. With Ricky Dollars. And maybe STingewell. For further information, contact this man at his office outside the Local 506, weeknights:

Diversions show review

The Daily Tar Heel's Diversions Blog has a review of our show with Frog Eyes and Alex Delivery up here. The writer is very right: Alex Delivery was pretty incredibly good. I include here a picture of Matt and myself because I am totally about to play an awesome solo that melted everyone's face.


Here's a fun way to learn about current news in Turkey, where one member of AP is headed this summer.

Hating on ticks!

Hey folks,

They'll be a solo Erie Choir set in downtown Raleigh tonight (Tuesday, 5/15) as part of a benefit for the North Carolina Lyme Disease Foundation. It'll take place at Kulture (430 S. Dawson St. Raleigh, North Carolina 27601). I'm up first at 7:30, to be followed by the Tourist and Jeremy Gilchrist. I'll try to be back to see the AP show at the 506. Wish me luck.

Congrats Grads!

Cheers to DC Nahm and Finksi for graduating from schools, making the former a law talking guy and the later a dookie.

Jeers to Biggie, Kalb, Ben, Ric and whoever else for not doing nothing.

could not resist

Frog Eyes, Alex Delivery and Audubon Park

We have a show next week with the above mentioned bands (except for us, we are not playing with ourselves but as ourselves). It is at the Local 506 on May 15th (St. Dymphna Day). We are first and will start at 9 PM (I assume if you are reading this--meaning this blog--and do so on a regular basis you either want to not miss us and will show up at 9 to see us, or you are in the band and will show up at 9:15). I have just moved to Harrisonburg and this will probably be our only show for a while--at least until the fall.

We have several new songs (for our in progress next record) and will be playing them for you with vigor. We will also have some other songs to play, but we don't know what yet.

Sorry to send The Best Video Ever to the rung below so quickly, but this is not unfunny enough to fail to put on the blog.
