Always Look On the Bright Side Of Life

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2007 at 2:34 PM

It's been a rough 48 hours, Solid State.

After a mad scramble on Monday morning to fix not one, not two but three f'ed-up spotlights in the music section, I've recently been made aware that this week's cover spot,  James Kochalka— a replacement for a band that send me the wrong freakin' date for their show — has canceled his Radio Bean performance. In the words of Charlie Brown, "Aaugh!"

On that note, it appears that my beloved New England Patriots are cheaters of Bondsian — or perhaps, Lucy-esque — proportions. Like I said, a rough 48 hours.

A few words of wisdom to aspiring musicians before we continue:

1. ALWAYS double check to make sure you send along the correct dates, especially if you're playing at the Bean since they don't post a calendar.

2. If you're trying to promote your band but don't have a high-resolution jpeg, get one.

3. I like cookies. Feel free to bribe me with them or use them as a conciliatory gesture if you screw up either of the above.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I wanted to let you know about a show that I never believed would happen: Gogol Bordello in Montpelier.

I'm not kidding. Ed DuFresne, booking dude for Langdon St. Cafe and the heart and soul of the Northeast Kingdom Music Fest has managed to convince Eugene Hutz and Co. that it's a good idea to play in an old gymnasium in our fair state capital. He might just be right.

I'm guessing the odd location is the result of the controversy surrounding GB's last performance Higher Ground and their rumored banishment from the club. Anyone with more info on that, feel free to divulge. This is the blogosphere, after all — wild unconfirmed rumors are par for the course!

Anyway, here are the pertinent details, press release style!

So, yeah. Gogol Bordello . . . In Montpeculiar  . . .  Anyone want to try and set up a few Morf vans to caravan to the show?

Tee hee, "caravan" . . . a rough 48 hours, friends. A long, rough 48 hours.

Tune in tomorrow to get in my Pants!
