April 19, 2012

Now we're no Sphinx. We're no Oracle. We can't tell the future by staring at the face of some blinded upside-down knight on some messed up playing card. No. We're just the regular old little website from the block; the one always willing to lend a neighbor a cup of sugar and an unsecured Wi-Fi connection. Just how we were raised is all. But regular or not, this here old website is going to try on the robe of the wise and do some good old future predicting today. And it ain't gonna be about the rain (though if we were you, we'd get those galoshes you've been putting off getting before this Sunday). This here's what we're thinking is gonna happen: this summer is going to be the best summer EVER for FREE SUMMER SHOWS. Now we apologize for touching base a couple times with our caps lock key just then, but darn it if sometimes you don't just gotta check in with that far left fella to come out with the full EFFECT. Of course, this prediction could be taken by some to be mighty bold – and not in the dilled garlic pickle kind of bold neither. The skeptics among us will ask if we know exactly, right now, in this present time, the full free summer shows schedule. And to that we say, of course we do not. But partner, we do know this. The free summer shows we already have listed are looking mighty fine. And if 10% of all the free summer shows rumors we’re hearing turn out to be true, well, we’ll be 100% with this prediction business. And you heard THAT here FIRST. (By the way, that caps lock fella is alright if you don't crowd him and give him some time to get to know you. That's how real regulars are. Just the way we were raised is all.)

ON THE HOMEPAGE

furfur

RECOMMENDED SHOW

FUR

Electro instrumental sickness from another galaxy. Think Neon Indian meets The X-Files.

BAND WE LIKE

Selebrities

Moody, swirling post-something synth pop. But you just need to know that these are jams.
