Guadalupe, Japanther, and Kim & Matt (about to be hit by a locomotive) playing at Pratt Institute last night.

no really they will. punk shows will save humanity. when the apocalypse comes and everything is reduced to rubble, the punks will begin rebuilding society by learning to play their favorite punk tunes by adapting them to rhythms using different materials to bang on. slowly small tribes will start forming around the group that can play the best Minor Threat song, or Fugazi, or Fifteen, etc. . . they will eventually grow and become very much like original native tribes, a society based around a primitive musical tradition. after all, that's the point of the apocalypse. . . to return humanity to it's long-lost origins. there will be other tribes, mostly based on early hip-hop due partially to the ease and attraction of sparse not-overproduced beats (and love, peace, dancing, girls. . . rather than drugs, guns, sex, murder). so these tribes will become the basis for a new humanity, all thanks to the tradition of the $4 punk show.

MP3:

13 & God is the collaboration between Notwist and Themselves. Spacey Scandanavian pop meets mellow and strange indie hip-hop (thanks to being stranded in canada). it's been on pretty constant rotation in my head as of late. i should also note that both tracks are pretty different, with one side of the collaboration taking a bit more of the spotlight on each. so definitely give 'em both a peek.

• 13 & God - Perfect Speed

• 13 & God - Superman On Ice


buy music, especially independent.

  6. i almost got a bit serious about the 4dollar punk stuff, but im just a bit of a serious wanker when it comes to politics and the end of the world...
