The Kooks - Announce North American Tour (playing Trocadero 11/15)

I can't express how excited I am to finally see these guys live. You should be too! As someone who buys concert tickets before albums, it sucks being a fan of a band/artist/etc for years before getting the chance to see them live. Well, the wait is finally over. The Kooks are kicking off their North American tour in our town with The Postelles

Manchester Orchestra - "Virgin" Video

I love waking up to mailing list emails that actually have something awesome to say/share/whatever. This morning was especially awesome. Manchester Orchestra have released a video for my favorite song off of Simple Math, "Virgin." Check out the unique fan made video below, as well as the equally unique story behind it. Enjoy! I've already watched it five times while preparing this post...

The Boxer Rebellion - Live Album (free download) + North American Tour (playing World Cafe Live 11/17)

FINALLY! I've been waiting to see this band live ever since I saw Going the Distance - yeah, that chick flick with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. Judge all you want, but it's a good movie that features this super talented four-piece alternative rock band from London.
