Today's Quick Mention: Trying to put
"creativity back into schools" is a rather
worthwhile cause, so be sure to stop by the
tonight for the Attendance Records benefit.
The show starts at 7:15pm, and for just $5 you can
see the Sour Notes, Matt Hines, Mother Falcon, Guns
Of Navarone, and more.
It's pretty rare that I genuinely get excited
about the impending release of a new album from a
folk artist, so you know it actually means something
when I say I'm pumped for the new Tallest Man On
Earth effort. The sure to be great full length
is titled There's No Leaving Now, and it's
expected out on June 12 via Secretly Canadian.
Tallest Man On Earth - 1904: Kristian Matsson is such a talented bastard. This
is a warm, well crafted, nicely written song, and while you
could just sit around with headphones on as you stare out of
a window, it's more than accessible enough for everyone.
So, crank it up and let the neighbors check it out. My
guess is that they'll probably come over and thank you for
