A Bit of Unexpected Coolness
Back in the day, in the not-so-long-ago, before moving out west, I played bass in a little Washington, DC band called The Jet Age. We were a new band, nearly finishing our debut album. Well, the university job market being what it is, and the Good Doctor Mondo finishing her Ph.D., it was time to go west young man, and I had to take my leave of my dear friends and their most wondrous jangly jarring indie rock.
Fast forward 2.5 years, and The Jet Age are not just surviving, but thriving.
And today, I am thrilled to write that Eric, Pete, and Greg have been named Spin Magazine's Artist of the Day for today, 2/27/08. Hah, on Hammer Day, no less!
Please stop on by and pick up your free download of "False Idols", one of the best tracks on their most excellent new album, "What Did You Do During the War, Daddy?"
While your at it, you can still stream the entire record here:
Speaking of coolness, but of the entirely expected variety, tonight is more Mookie madness, now supersized with bounties, and featuring Buddy Dank Radio:
The Good Doctor's got a lil' something after work, so I may even be able to show up tonight and put that Dookie buy-in from a few weeks back to terrible use.
