Yay! Radiohead is Coming!

Radiohead and Jack Johnson will headline the first All Points West Music & Arts Festival, to be held Aug. 8-10 at Liberty State Park! Thanks for the Pop Candy tip, Roe! I haven't been to a concert in ages! Actually, last time Ian & I saw Radiohead was at Liberty State Park, right before 9/11, when I managed to get some last minute tickets through work. I think the last concert we saw was White Stripes at KeySpan Park two years ago.

New Band To Check Out-& They're From NY!

The name made me curious, and if you like ska/punk style music, with some classical and African influences, you'll like this band, Vampire Weekend. I think they formed at Columbia U.

Here's their MySpace:

Newsweek Cover

I don't like her body language here, not for a magazine cover.

New Blog Link

I've added a link to the blog Polly Vous Francais? at the left. I've been reading it for a bit, most recently entertained by anecdotes she gathered about a charming car called the 2CV. Apparently for some time after WWII, the French government gave one of these to families upon birth of a fifth child, as an incentive to repopulating the place. Perhaps it's not the most glamourous looking car, but still, could you imagine ever receiving a car from the American government? And then listening to traveller's tell their tales, it makes for a fun read.

Next Purchase for Wii-American Idol

Since they don't make Singstar for the Wii, I think I'm going to get the American Idol set w/ the microphone, pretty good song selection mix. I heard that you shouldn't get Boogie, it's more about making your avatar dance, plus the songs aren't the actual songs but someone else singing them.

That just drives me nuts, like those Kidz Bop cds. Why they heck would someone buy a cd of kids singing the songs instead of the artist? Unless it's fbomb laden or something, but I wouldn't imagine they're choosing songs filled with curses.
