Jamaican Queens are serving wormfood (new album on their own Notown records). They're playing down at Trinosophes with a fine collection of post-techno, leftfield-hip-hop and NuWeird-electro outfits.
The Go are throwing a Fiesta tonight at the Lager House - with their friends from Burger Records (as well as the Wolfman Band).
And we're even closer to (or are already being delightfully horrified-by) the release of a considerable trifecta of weird-cool-craziness from freak-rock icons like The Flaming Lips, The Yeah Yeah Yeah's and elusively sensationalist electronica duo The Knife.
I'm trying to wrap my head around all three of their respective releases: The Terror, Mosquito and Shaking The Habitual. That's a daunting task for just one day. It's invigorating to be that overwhelmed, in such a fulfilling way, by music.
