No Las Vegas But How 'Bout GBV in Hotlanta?-- Who's with me?

Sadly, I'm not going to be able to go to Las Vegas for Matador's 21st B-day Shindig. Those of you who do, drink a beer or two for me. I have, however, gone ahead and purchased tickets for the Saturday, October 23 show (just two days before my own birthday!) at Buckethead Theatre in Atlanta. What I did not realize until I purchased these tickets is that Sweet Apple is opening that show!!! If you don't know, Sweet Apple is Jon Petkovic and Tim Parnin (of Cobra Verde), Dave Sweetapple (Witch), and J mother-effing Mascis! Seriously, their new album Love & Desperation has been in constant rotation since I got a copy back in April. Here's the lead single:

Yes, this should be a pretty great night for Rock & Roll.

you know J Mascis is the love of my life (next to my husband of course)? this sweet apple sounds awesome! hooray for new music and music new to me - I think I shall be picking your site apart bit by bit and bathing in all of its glorious rock and roll goodness. that sounded a bit odd, but you know what I mean.
