Today's Quick Mention:  Lots of good live music set for this weekend.  Tonight I'm heading to Stubb's for Ben Folds and then the Parish for Shearwater (and hopefully Wye Oak).  Tomorrow the plan is for a little roller derby, and then I'm off to the Mohawk for the Midgetmen's 8th Anniversary Show.  Join me!

While I did like The Dead Weather's debut, it didn't take me too long before I was sort of done with it.  In fact, I don't think I had heard any of the "older" tunes they played at Stubb's last week (awesome show, by the way) in at least a good 6-8 months.  So will the new album have more weight?  Maybe.  Probably.  We'll see when Sea Of Cowards drops May 11.  Enjoy.

:The Dead Weather - Hustle And Cuss:  This song doesn't have the same sort of bewildered intensity that the newly released Die By The Drop or Gasoline (featured below in faux-video form) has, so I wouldn't come into this hoping for a rollicking good time that may or may not feature fist pumping.  No, this kind of meanders around and seems more intent on getting you to do a jig.  Sounds weird, I know, but I dig it.  A lot.
