See Jim Fairchild Tonight at the Echo
I blew off the blog for a few days while I was in Vegas. I saw my Kansas Jayhawks beat the defending national champs in basketball. I hope you went out and supported live music. Anybody see Tussle or Dirty on Purpose or Talib Kweli? Before I left town I saw the Pernice Brothers at Spaceland. Great show. Along with the time I saw them at Stubbs (inside) in Austin, it was one of the best I've seen them play. They played a lot of the songs I hoped for, including that Zombies' cover.
Great Northern / Irving / All Smiles (Jim Fairchild of Grandaddy) @ the Echo (Free) - Everybody's really looking forward to seeing Jim Fairchild's new band, All Smiles. They cut an album for Dangerbird records that will come out in January. You can download some tracks at All Smiles' Myspace page. Irving join their new label mates, Great Northern for the last night of Great Northern's residency. Great Northern's record will come out in May on Eenie Meenie Records.
