BUSY BUSY BUSY these days. Orientation week(s) activities in full-swing on campus and UMFM had a sweet little stage in the hot, hot sun featuring The Eardrums, Enjoy Your Pumas, This Hisses and The Noble Thiefs (many thanks to all of those bands!) and yours truly was working sound / set-up. But I still managed to find time to pack my show with goodness. The big two-night Greg MacPherson Disintegration Blues CD release extravaganza at the West End provided the impetus for openers Jesse Hill and Cannon Bros. to stop in for interviews and live sessions. And A Waste Odyssey came with their instruments this time and blazed through two live songs to promote the I'm Trying Records Showcase at the LO Pub on Saturday September 17th.
Here's what was played:
Set One: 6:30 PM - 7 PM
Washed Out - "Amor Fati" [Sub Pop] Within And Without
