It's tonight, my people

Dirty Projectors, Le Weekend, Ecstatic Sunshine
Duke Coffeehouse
Tuesday, September 25, 2007 - $7 ($4 for Duke students)
Doors 8:30, Show 9

The order is a bit up in the air at the moment, but it's irrelevant because nothing on this bill should be missed. Quit your job if it's in the way. That girl doesn't love you; only this music loves you. Your newborn kitten will figure out the world if you just stop looking for him.

So I'll see you there.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

It took long enough, but today I unfurl the banner announcing the birth of a new blog: Coultering.

A Self-Evident, Reckonized Truth

You get me?

Soft Company = tonight, whereas Le Weekend = tuesday

The Cave (the late show)
Tonight, Saturday, September 22, 2007 - $5
w/ Americans in France and Waumiss

Waumiss promise a like 10 minute set at the beginning, and it would be quite stupid of you to miss that, so get there on time, yo! On time means 10:45pm, and that means make it 10:15-10:30 and enjoy a drink first.

Americans in France remind me, in weird ways, of what V. Sirin would have been like if we had been fun.

Soft Company is sophisticated and rewards your ears if they've been good.

Le Weekend occasionally DBA Le Weekend (same spelling, but Le is mispronounced)
Duke Coffeehouse
Tuesday, September 25, 2007 - $7 ($4 for Duke students)
w/ Dirty Projectors and Ecstatic Sunshine

I will not even attempt cleverness: Dirty Projectors is a band you need to experience and take a position on. It's avant catchy, it's complex and simple, and very accomplished (sometimes in ways that aren't obvious on the surface). It won't be for everybody but it should be. I have been delving into their catalog and it is a very rewarding delve. I'm quite curious to see how they will translate this material live.

Ecstatic Piece are a guitar duo and they create amazing sounds, which isn't probably what you first expect from a guitar duo. They claim to be Bruce Springsteen and Greg Ginn; what more do I have to give you people?!?

So even though Le Weekend*, as you know, rules, I'm amazingly gratified to take part in this show. If I hear one complaint about it being a Tuesday, you're going to hear, in excruciating detail, what my every Wednesday is like.

*As seen above winning the Wettest Band in the World contest.

Our Man pays a visit

I know that you get tired of me,
but that's alright.
My tongue lays dead in my mouth
a reflection on a pond.

Have you missed Him? Has you a bucket? Walrrie says Purp's heard not one single thing on the AOL IMing virtual space-chat place. Have you read anything (novels)? I mean, lately? Whole retinal chunks of life go missing -- making holes, as it were -- and the world turns more. And so what? I used to walk by His house everyday, until He moved. Sometimes to Rockafish or Ming Garden, more often than not to points south (where projected images aid escape). Now He runs every other day. Now He works. And but so anyway now Our Man returns for a brief visit. Dudes Roll.

William Wegman in Carrboro?

Eyewitness Report from Maggie Dickson at a bus stop in Carrboro:

"while I was waiting at the bus stop a motorcycle with a sidecar went by, and in the sidecar was a weimaraner. And the weimaraner was wearing a seatbelt AND a pair of goggles. It was looking quite debonair."
