1. Hereâ€™s something I just wrote for Paste online thatâ€™sÂ not likely toÂ be in the running for DaCapoâ€™s Best Music Writing of 2007.
2. Iâ€™ll be MCâ€™ing Gonerfest 4 – Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. More info here. One of theÂ dates is shaping up to be â€œcharacter nightâ€ – see post from 9/20. No, Iâ€™m not dressing up as Steve Malkmus.
3. For 20 seconds of grocery store reading, check out my two reviews in the October issue of Spin Magazine. The Shocking Pinks album is wonderful (itâ€™s on DFA) and could pose as a lost Flying Nun recording circa-1989. Have I mentioned how hard it is to write a 90-word review?
