Irving Plaza

Last night Ernie played at Irving Plaza. It was his first time. It was a lot of fun. He played with his new band backing Craig Wedren. They are really awesome. They opened for OK Go, who are really good. That band is so tight and solid. The frontman is so freakin' hot. I hadn't heard any of their stuff before other than that goofy web-video thingy. I have to say their shit rocks, influences range from the Cure to the Violent Femmes, but their song writing could use a little work.

Craig's new record, Lapland is so good. You should buy it. Craig used to be in a band called Shudder to Think. He is such a nice guy. He currently writes the music for the Comedy Central show Stella. Craig is a great songwriter. The band is Ernie, Kevin March on drums (from Guided by Voices) and Kevin McGuiness on guitar. These guys are hot. The next show is next Friday 11/4 at the Living Room on the lower east side.

Has anyone ever said to you "Not to name drop but, nobody ever calls me anymore except U2. I wish someone else would call me once in a while." WHAT!? Sometimes it just amazes me how my life has become such a twilight zone episode- now I'm going to go bid on some keywords...
