Out of the Trashcan

Been lying low, due to no show this week, but it more than compensated by getting to interview Trashcan Sinatras, the exceptional Scottish band who also played at Milestones last night. Not too often you get to sit in the middle of one of your favorite bands ("Cake", from 1990, was one of those sum-up-the-moment records) while they play around you, but then we got to see them play at Lakeshore Records and at Milestones and hang out afterwards as well. A truly magical 24 hours-plus.

Katrina stepped in to the Review this week, but when I finally got to see what she played, she already had taken two of the ones I'm doing this Monday. Ah well, time for an Ebert and Roeper thingy perhaps. To wit, the again-revised playlist for a month or so:

5/2: New Order, Go-Betweens, Pearl Jam
5/9: Mercury Rev, Robbie Fulks?, Trevor Horn
5/16: The Kills, Dead Meadow, Bread tribute
5/23: Bloc Party, House of Love?
5/30: Sleater-Kinney!

Always subject to change depending on what lands in the ever-growing pile.
BTW, photos of the WBER appearance appear thisaway. That's the back of yours truly's head by Bugs.

It's off to the Wayzgoose Book Arts fair in Grimsby with my favorite traveling companion, my wife, this Saturday. here's hoping the weather holds. More as always.
