File Under: I Told You So, Jackass

Posted By on Tue, Jun 5, 2007 at 4:12 PM

Regular Solid Staters likely remember last week's brouhaha concerning my debut blog post,  (Solid) State of The Union Address. If not, put down the pipe, bro', it was only a week ago.

In the post, I lamented the relatively recent passing of several "big" local bands and alluded — apparently poorly — to a few local bands that while still playing, seemed to have stepped back from the limelight somewhat. While I stand by what I wrote — though it was admittedly vague — one of the groups I wrote about just contacted me with some great news.

The Cush have been selected to perform at this year's North By Northeast festival in Toronto on June 9. For those of you who don't know, that's kind of a big deal. NXNE is like South By South West in Austin, TX, only instead of rowdy Texans, there are polite Canadians.  It's kinda like the difference between SNL and SCTV. They're both sketch comedy shows with some cast crossover, but one is distinctly . . . well, Canadian.

It's a great opportunity for the band and I wish them luck.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go wrench my foot free from my mouth.
