Josh Rouse is one of the best singer/songwriter dudes out there these days. Since his first couple of records (which are fantastic), he’s been solid. He is playing The Kessler with Sara Hickman coming up and I’ll be there for sure.

The Head And The Heart are putting out a new album in October so it makes sense they’d tour to support it. Thankfully they come to Dallas in November and frankly I can’t wait. They are so good live they’ll make you say to your friend “Wow, they are so good live.” I did anyway at their last show. Presale is over but you can get tickets still (if you hurry) here
The Babyshambles/Libertines man has opened up to NME about his love of the hard stuff…
“I don’t think it’s possible to sustain a healthy, for want of a better word, cocaine and heroin dependancy, and then call yourself healthy by any stretch of the imagination. You’re a fool unto yourself if you think that. Getting over 30… it’s reached a point now where there’s no way round it. It’s like, either curb it or stop it, or lose your health. To get better you have to get worse. When I stop smoking crack, which I have done recently – I am smoking a lot less – my lungs, all of a sudden, start churning out all this horrible shit. Which, while you’re smoking you don’t get the chance to do. It’s almost that the first thing about giving up drugs is to descend into a pitched toe-to-toe street fight with your health.” When the interviewer asked what would need to change to make him stop drugs his reply was (of course) “Probably my sex drive will have to go. Or I’ll have to lose a hand.”
Here’s the new Babyshambles single (from the forthcoming new cd)
Sorry about the lack of posts in the last few days. Normal programming shall resume very soon
It’s all rumor at this point but Disney is meeting with Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron to play the children of Luke and Han/Leia.
Let that sink in
One of the worst band names ever
Constantly wore shorts and painters caps
From 1989 this is Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine with “Sheriff Fatman”
I’d rather watch this than the real version for obvious reasons. Those Macklemore and Lewis dudes who did the song “Thrift Shop” are coming to Dallas soon (Nov 30) and you can get tickets here
The good people over at Good Records! Dallas has a ton of good records as we all know and you gotta have Good Records on Greenville on the list. Check their site at goodrecords.com
Did I mention that Tim from The Polyphonic Spree founded the store way back when? Well, he did. The Spree also have a new record which may be the best thing they’ve ever done. Check the first single below
