    Yup, I'm going to see Akron/Family in Maryland on the 31st and Wilco next Sunday. I think I might be able to squeeze in The Books and/or Silver Jews on the 28th or 17th respectively, but I don't know if I can do that AND still be a vinyl junkie at the same time.

    Alright, here is where the year really begins. I'm pretty sure there are about atleast four new albums I need to pick up this month.

    Meh! Akron/Family is at a pretty bad time of the day (7pm) but a rather great price (free) so I need to do some schedule switching. =[

    Also I envy your ability to see Wilco and the Silver Jews. Evidently Albany likes its music scene, which I'm sure is justified (I've yet to really do any local artist concerts) but the idea I get from most venues is they always go for a local band over a band someone has actually heard of. Really kicking myself for passing up on seeing Jeff Tweedy solo when he came here--my philosophy teacher gave me a bootleg of the show, which is awesome in itself but it doesn't quite make up for my stupidity. =[

    Man, I have the biggest concert going week EVER later this month.

    14th - New Pornographers and Belle & Sebastian
    15th - Wilco
    18th - Of Montreal
    20th - Ted Leo & The Pharmacists

    All of this surrounds my birthday, which is the 17th.

    I'm psyched.

    Do whatever you can to go see Akron/Family. That band is going places someday.

    Richmond's scene is hardcore and not much else. If you start a hardcore band you instantly have 100 fans just becuase someone knows you from some show or some other hardcore band. It's pretty sad. I catch almost all my shows either in Charlottesville, D.C., or Chapel Hill, NC, which is about two hours of driving each way. The Richmond ska/jazz/hip-hop scene used to be fantastic, but all three seemingly died at the same time.

    But yeah, definitely looking forward to the Silver Jews gig. Not only is it their first tour, but Stephen Malkmus used to janitor at the gig they're playing at (Satellite Ballroom). So it's going to be quite surreal. The Wilco tickets sold out almost immediately, but I snagged some up-front and center ones for roughly $200 split four ways.

    As of this month... I've still got nothin' going on, unfortunately. Actually, maybe it is fortunate. My wallet and I need a break.

    ...of course, that break can be ended at any time whenever I decide to buy the QOTSA live CD/DVD, or POD's album, or some other stuff. But for now I'm pretty content, after an amazing Mute Math concert experience on the 22nd. I guess I didn't mention that, did I? Oh well, too late.

    In terms of hip-hop releases this month, it should be pretty good. Ghostface's Fishscale is coming out near the end of the month and if you can't tell by my sig, Murs' Murray's Revenge comes out the 21th of the month. Also, I believe Busta Rhymes' The Big Bang comes out as well. Since you are taking suggestions Jam, I think you should listen to Ghostface and Murs' albums when you have the chance.

    I've been catching up with a couple of bands, so nothing new on my list.
    • Danger Doom - The Mouse and the Mask - I've been meaning to pick this one up for a while, and it definitely doesn't disappoint. It's the usual quality you would expect from MF Doom and Danger Mouse. The AS collaboration worked out better than I expected.
    • P.O.D. - Satellite - With their latest album already out, I decided to catch up on some of their stuff I missed. I've heard their singles, and the rest of the album is pretty much on par.
    • Japan For Sale Volume.4 - It's hard to find a good variety of bands without importing, so this album is a nice preview. The genres/styles covered is pretty good compared to other compilation albums.
    • System of a Down (Self-Titled) - I'm one of those fans that started on Toxicity, so finally picked up their debut.

    It's a less consistent album with less of their distinctive sound, but some of the songs on there really kick Toxicity's butt.

    Pearl Jam's new self-titled album will be in stores on May 2! Their first single from the record, 'Worldwide Suicide,' will be released this upcoming week. Besides the details of the album title, release date and that it'll be on J records instead of Epic are all I know.

    Built To Spill's new album (You in Reverse) will be out on April 11, and while there is not much information on it, Tool's new album is expected to be out in May. They'll be headlining one day at the Coachella festival. I saw the lineup and it looks like it has some nice groups (My Morning Jacket, Coheed and Cambria, Franz Ferdinand, etc.), but it's unfortunately too far from where I live. Maybe Lollapalooza in Chicago?

    Music News:

    It seems as if Primus vocalist/bassist/main songwriter Les Claypool, will be working on a new solo album instead of a new Primus album as it once seemed. As long as he releases a good album in general, whether it's Primus or a solo album, I will be satisfied.

    Both the new TV on the Radio and Yeah Yeah Yeahs albums have leaked, and I'm ridiculously tempted to give them a listen, especially TVOTR.

    I'm going to see the opening gig on Wilco's tour in Chapel Hill, NC tomorrow night. Should be a gas.

    Looks like Dir en grey will have an American release of their last album, Withering to death.

    I'll probably (most likely) get it one of these days.
