Well, well, well....what do we have here? The Built By Snow "Mega" CD release party (read a review here), and Hollywood Gossip? On the same night? Gentleman, it's time to haul out your tight jeans and Rivers Cuomo glasses: It's a (lovable) nerd-off!
Equally gleeful are The Bubbles, who I'm just now hearing about. The McKenzies - I believe this is their MySpace page, but I'm not entirely certain - add a healthy dose of harmonica to the mix. All in all, this looks to be a fairly angst-free evening.
If you're feeling more pensive however, you can walk right next door to the Mohawk on Saturday, where Ume will be having their CD release party:
They are playing with the Japanese-tinged Many Birthdays, whom you know we heart very much already.
I want to make a stop by Club DeVille on Saturday to see buddies in Built By Snow and Hollywood Gossip, but I have to admit I'm sort of in the mood for a different type of music this weekend...the kind you make on a computer.
Prepmode and Doneski, the czar of Austin nightlife blog The Famousish, will be doing their thing at Black & Tan.
Speaking of Black & Tan. True confession here. I sometimes have this problem where I'm the only one who wants to go dancing....and if I run into that on Saturday, I'm thinking of jazzing myself up enough to go by myself. Do any of y'all do that? At times, I've considered taking along my cheap little camera with me to places like these, snapping random photos and telling everyone there that I'm "press," which is a MAJOR LIE. (Unless you consider a blog you invented yourself to be a valid member of the media corps). "Hi, I'm a correspondent for Blogspot.com. Would you mind posing for a picture?"
How funny would that be!!
