Today's Quick Mention: You know what I
love most about Austin? It isn't the live
music scene. It's the Alamo Drafthouse.
Case in point, tonight they're doing an Iron Man
double feature, and I will be there with beer and
pizza in hand. Fantastic! If you don't
live near one, you should.
In between working and feeling bummed that last
night resulted in my team losing a fifth trivia
finals in a row, today I remembered that Imaad Wasif
is damn good and he should be talked about more.
Tell a friend. Or six. But only after
you selfishly rocked out to the special selection
(it will soon be out on 7" via IAMSOUND) below for
the next day or so. Enjoy.
Wasif - Ecstasy:
If there's one thing that you have to admit Imaad has going
for him, it's definitely that he consistently sounds like
good old classic cool. For instance, here he
slinks along, crooning about love, and he does it all to a
healthy mix of chugging guitar riffs. It's actually
almost old school to a fault, but it certainly doesn't feel
as tired as what so many other similar acts out there are
